Is BAföG or your family's assets not enough to finance your living expenses? Would you rather complete your studies quickly than drag them out with a time-consuming part-time job? Then the student loan from the KfW development bank under public law may be something for you. The KfW student loan is independent of your own income and that of your parents and can be combined with BAföG or the education loan. You can apply monthly from the beginning of your studies until the 10th semester.
We will advise you in detail about the KfW Student Loan, answer your questions and help you with the application process. Counseling or application acceptance is possible in Konstanz and in Weingarten. If you are interested, please make an appointment.
Please note: In order to receive the KfW-Studienkredit for the new semester, please send the KfW verification protocol, both sides of your identity card and the semester certificate by e-mail.

Certificate of achievement
At the latest by the end of the sixth semester in the Bachelor's program, you must submit a certificate of achievement from the university for 90 ECTS directly to KfW. If an extension semester is required due to the Corona pandemic, a semester can be applied for and extended via an informal application to KfW if the university confirms the delay for organisational reasons.
