Financing

For all aspects of daily life,
for all study questions.

A good education is a basis of professional success. However, any education implicates financial burdens. The AKAFÖ as student services is your contact for study financing. We are engaged with the implementation of the main source of study financing – BAföG, which stands for Bundesausbildungsförderungsgesetz (Federal Education & Training Assistance Act).

The objective of BAföG is to give every young person, regardless of his social and economic situation, an opportunity to complete studies corresponding to his skills and interests. Qualified training, including university studies, shall not fail due to lack of financial resources of the student, his parents or his spouse. For this reason, a Federal Education & Training Assistance Act (BAföG) exists in Germany.

However, the AKAFÖ is not only in charge of the BAföG related issues. In addition, we are responsible for the mediation of the “end of studies loan” granted by DAKA-NRW, are your cooperation partner for the KfW-Banking Group student loan and are ready to assist you in all other study financing issues.

BAföG

The AKAFÖ is engaged with the implementation of the main source of study financing – BAföG, which stands for Bundesausbildungsförderungsgesetz (Federal Education & Training Assistance Act). On the following pages we provide answers to the most important questions related to study financing in accordance with the Federal Education & Training Assistance Act. However, no information brochure can replace a personal consulting service. A consultation at your local Education and Training Assistance Office is worthwhile in any case.
