to Bavaria's most international University of Applied Sciences

Funding your Studies.

Scholarships & co.

How to fund your studies is an important factor when choosing to continue your education at university. Therefore, we've complied a monthly payment overview list to help you see how much financial backing you will need and how to fund your lifestyle to make the most of student life:

An overview of expenses:

  • The Bavarian State Ministry supports academic education and therefore charges no tuition fees for all full-time international and German students
  • We only charge a small student services fee of 62 Euros per semester 
  • In addition, all residents are required to pay a TV and radio licence fee
  • View a living expenses chart


There are several opportunities to partially finance your studies through a scholarship, particuarly if you are an ambitious or talented student. We are happy to support you with your application and advise you about financial support.


The Bavarian State Ministry of Sciences, Research and the Arts supports advanced students and young university graduates with scholarships to drive the internationalisation of its higher education forward. These scholarships are generally awarded for one semester. The amount of funding is decided in a case-by-case process based solely on the respective individual's need. This amounts to between 100 and 615 euros per month. One-off study subsidies (at least 250 euros) are available in cases of particular hardship.


The programme primarily targets advanced students and younger university graduates who are either already studying in a degree programme that leads to a first degree with professional qualification or who have registered for a post-graduate or Master's programme at a Bavarian university.Applicants are selected on the basis of academic credentials, personal qualification, experience, need, and other relevant factors. The amount of funding is decided in a case-by-case process based solely on the respective individual's need and the funds available.


Applications may be handed in to the International Office; there is no defined application deadline.

BayHost is the Bavarian Academic Centre for Central, Eastern and Southeastern Europe. All details about scholarships programmes are on the website.


BayBIDS is supported by Bavaria University (registered society) and the Bavarian Ministry of Science, Research and Art. The project originated in 2008, with the initiative coming from the German Academic Exchange Service and the partner-school initiative of the Foreign Office. The project was set up to promote cooperation between German schools abroad and German partner-schools with Bavarian universities.

BayBIDS regularly awards scholarships to graduates of German schools abroad, who begin their studies in Bavaria. Visits to partner schools abroad are also financed. See the website for all details.



This financial support programme is for German or international students who are fully-integrated and have their long-term perspectives in Germany (e.g. European citizens or students with long term residential visas). Grants are based on personal assets, wages earned and parental or partner income.

More information can be found (in German) at www.bafoeg.de.


The Begabtenförderungswerke Endowment consists of many different organisations in Germany that award scholarships to young, gifted and talented students. It supports bright minds that seek to bring change to society.

It targets German, EU and other international students who are entitled to permanent residence in Germany within the framework of Article 8 in the Federal Training Assistance Act, otherwise known as BAföG.

The applicant student must be enrolled at a public or state-recognized institution of higher education in Germany.


The Deutschlandstipendium at the Deggendorf Institute of Technology provides students with approx. € 3,600 per year for approx. 80 individual scholarships.

Students who excel in their studies and demonstrate a high level of academic achievement will be selected for the scholarship. Furthermore, special personal and family circumstances will be taken into account.  Extracurricular activities such as social and student involvement are also taken into consideration in the selection process. The scholarship is not based on student income or on the income of the parents. It is not calculated based on BAföG, and there are no social insurance contributions to be made. Half of the funding is provided by companies and private donors; the other half by the Federal Ministry of Education and Research.
