According to the German Student Union, the total costs for a Bachelor's programme with about six/seven semesters amount to an average of 30,000 euros (including living expenses such as rent, food, etc.). The question of financing should therefore be raised very early on by every prospective student.

There are various contact points that offer financing possibilities:

  • The Studierendenwerk Stuttgart provides a lot of information, e.g. about BAföG and student loans
  • The HFT Stuttgart awards scholarships annually according to performance and social criteria
  • The placement of working student positions via the study programmes and professors is possible
Financing possibilities
  • Financial support from the family
  • Child benefit
  • BAföG
  • Scholarships
  • Working student activities
  • student loans / education loans
Study and money

BAföG proof of suitability

BAföG itself can only be applied for through the Studentenwerk Stuttgart. However, from the 5th semester onwards (including the repetition semester), a certificate according to § 48 Abs. 1 BAföG must be presented, which shows that the student has successfully met the requirements by the end of the 4th semester. Late submission regularly leads to the loss of the training grant.
