KfW credit

The KfW credit supports you during your studies with a minimum of 100 Euro and a maximum of 650 Euro per month - without credit guarantees and regardless of income / assets.

Who can apply?
– Students studying at a state or state-recognized university based in Germany
– German citizens who have not yet reached the age of 44
– Students in first degree, second degree, master's degree and doctoral degree
– Foreigners who have acquired their university entrance qualification in Germany or at a German school abroad

Since June 1st, 2020, the group of applicants has been expanded to include all foreign students. This measure is limited until March 31, 2021 (latest application date is February 15th, 2021). This measure is implemented with the support of the Federal Ministry of Education and Research, so that all students in Germany can be provided with bridging aid during the Corona pandemic if they meet the other requirements of the KfW student loan.
