Eine Grafik zeigt ein blaues Dach, das von fünf Säulen getragen wird. Auf dem Dach steht „Säulen der Studienfinanzierung“. An den Säulen steht nach einander: 87 % Unterhalt der Eltern, 5 % Studienkredit, 4 % Stipendien, 32 % BAföG und 63 % Jobben.

Studying in the land between the seas is nice, but unfortunately not free. So that your studies do not fail because of your parents' wallet, there are various ways, which we briefly introduce here.

The majority of all students receive maintenance from their parents, just under 11% receive BAföG benefits(Statista), 6% take out a student loan, 5% receive a scholarship and 70% go to work while studying( You can find out more about these topics on the following pages.

Where do I get the money I need?

Child support law is complicated, but in principle, parents are obligated to finance an appropriate education for their children until they graduate. However, out of the imperative of mutual consideration, children of full age are also obligated to complete this education in a goal-oriented manner.

It is a fact that many parents are not able to pay the necessary maintenance in full, and sometimes they do not want to pay it. The question then arises as to what alternative or supplementary financing options are available. On our website you can find out about many other alternatives.

Studis Online offers a "Study Financing Check", where you can quickly, easily and individually check whether, in addition to BAföG, other sources of money such as child support, alimony, housing allowance, unemployment benefits, scholarships, education loans, KfW student loans or other loans and funds are possible for you. In addition to the question of possible assets, it takes into account many individual factors of the person in question or the studies.

We are happy to help you!
