Submit your BAföG application now!
If you would like to receive BAföG from winter semester 2019/20 onwards, you must submit your application by 31 October 2019 (date of receipt) to the Department for Grants (Amt für Ausbildungsförderung) in order to secure your benefits for October.
It is worth applying!
Learn more about the new BAföG on our webpage "More BAföG in 2019."
Tip 1: The earlier you submit your application, the better! However, due to the high amount of applications we receive at the beginning of the semester, the proccessing is delayed and might take 8-12 weeks until completion. But fear not: If you hand-in the application in time and BAföG is granted, the money is paid retroactively from October.
Tip 2: In order to meet the deadline, an informal or incomplete application is sufficient. All missing application forms and supporting documents must then be submitted subsequently.
*Or pick up applications and forms at Studentenwerk Leipzig, Goethestraße 6, ground floor.
