Apply for educational support to attend a training centre located abroad


With the Bildungsförderung (BAföG) you can complete a school or university education regardless of your economic origin.

If you are studying, training at school or doing an internship abroad, you can also apply for BAföG.

Funding for studies within the EU is possible until graduation. If you are studying outside the EU, you can generally receive funding for 1 year. In exceptional cases, funding is also possible for 2.5 years.

Your tuition fees and travel expenses are also taken into account in the calculation.

  • You must meet the general requirements for BAföG in Germany
  • For training stays outside the EU:
    • the duration of the training is at least 6 months or 1 semester
    • at least 12 weeks for internships and cooperative courses of study
  • Application for financial support
  • Supplementary sheet for training abroad
  • Proof of your income and assets
  • Proof of the income of your parents and spouse
  • Proof of tuition fees

You should submit the application as early as possible.

However, you must submit the application no later than the month in which you start your stay abroad.


The responsible body depends on the country in which you would like to complete the training or internship. The Studentenwerk in Halle (Saale) is responsible for Finland.

The required forms are available from the Offices for Educational Support and are also available on the BMBF website.

Further comprehensive information can be found on the Federal Government's website.
