Study Finance

The best-known method of funding studies is what is known as the "BAföG" (grant awarded under the German Federal Education Assistance Act).
All on-campus study programmes are eligible for support under section2(2) of the Bundesausbildungsförderungsgesetz (German Federal Education Assistance Act - BAföG).

The Studentenwerk Göttingen
is available to answer any questions that you may have on the subject of BAföG. An application for BAföG also needs to be made here.


To secure reliable and flexible study finance, the PFH has also entered into agreements with Deutsche Bildung AG and with Sparkasse Göttingen (Göttingen Savings Bank).


100 funding places for students of the PFH are reserved in the student loan programme of Deutsche Bildung AG. By way of an alternative, the Göttingen Savings Bank offers PFH students a special educational loan with flexible repayments.
