How do I finance my studies?
What does a degree actually cost? In addition to food and drink, clothing and accommodation, students must also include the costs of learning materials, semester fees, trips home, etc. in their Calculation. If your parents don't pay for your studies, or don't pay for them in full, you should look for alternatives at an early stage. There are many possibilities. First of all, everyone should submit a BAföG application, because even if the maximum funding is not approved, there could be support.
COST OF LIVING, FINANCING STUDIES AND SIDE JOBS
Scholarships are an alternative way of financing your studies. The University of Göttingen awards partial scholarships and one-off financial grants within the framework of public-private partnerships. The "Germany Scholarship" offers students a monthly subsidy to finance their studies. Students can apply for a one-time subsidy for the "Lower Saxony scholarship". Furthermore, scholarships are awarded by various foundations, so-called "gifted scholarships". There is a good overview of all types of scholarships in the scholarship guide of the Federal Ministry of Education and Research and for international students in the scholarship database of the German Academic Exchange Service (DAAD).
