A stay abroad is a great thing and offers many opportunities, but can also present financial challenges.
To make sure you don't have to give up on your dream of a stay abroad, we have compiled an overview of the various funding possibilities.
Erasmus+ is the European Union's mobility programme that supports student mobility. The funding opportunities are diverse and possible both within and outside Europe. Detailed information on the requirements and the application process can be found on the website of the International Office.
The German Academic Exchange Service (DAAD) explicitly supports students from universities of applied sciences and universities of applied sciences who are completing a stay abroad as part of their studies with the HAW.International scholarship. Information on requirements, benefits and deadlines can be found here.
In principle, it is always advisable to apply for BAföG abroad. Many students receive this funding even though they are not entitled to domestic BAföG due to their parents' income. However, make sure that you submit your application to the relevant BAföG office at least six months before the start of your planned stay abroad.
You can find further funding possibilities on the website of the International Office.
