Study loans

You can apply for a study loan in order to finance your living costs during the studies. The study loan is a monthly payment, which mainly covers the student’s living costs. It is therefore different from the Bavarian tuition loan, which is a semester payment for covering only the tuition fees. For more information about loan providers and requirements, please see
