The student loan programme has been launched by the federal government and it aims to financially support students, who have reached the advanced stage of their studies, with a low-interest
The student loan programme is completely separate from the funding provided by the Federal Training Assistance Act (BAföG). It is therefore possible to receive support from both at the same time. However, there is no legal right to a student loan, unlike the BAföG system.
The income or assets of the student of his or her parents do not play a role with the student loan.
