Study Financing

A good education is the foundation for professional success. In particular, studying is also associated with costs. Your own money is not always enough. Are you a first-year student? In that case, you should apply for BAföG early in the semester before the semester starts - maybe it will pay off for you! Even a minimal claim ensures great benefits! For example, a release from the broadcast contributions is possible. The Financial Study Assistance Department of the Studentenwerk Göttingen is there to help you with any questions about study financing.

About BAföG

Here, we will answer general questions about BAföG.


The BAföG-Calculator helps you to estimate the amount of BAföG you are entitled to. To get a binding statement on the amount of funding, hand in your application for BAföG!

KfW loan

A degree can also be financed through an education loan. Here you will find information about the KfW loan.


You are looking for an alternative financing for your studies? Valuable links and information about scholarships are available here.
