Foreign Placement Financing

International BAföG

An international BAföG is one option available to help students fund their foreign placement. The stay abroad has to be at least one semester in length and, to be eligible to apply, the students have to be enrolled on a specialised higher education course of at least two years in length, at a vocational college, academy or university.

The BAföG application can only be made to the Office for Educational Support in the destination country.



The ERASMUS student exchange programme is one of the European Union’s biggest success stories. Launched in 1987, it is an action scheme promoting the international mobility of students, university lecturers and university personnel in Europe. Hochschule Fresenius - University of Applied Sciences  has been an ERASMUS university with an ERASMUS university charter since 2004.

Completion of Studies Scholarship

The scholarship is financed by the DAAD from funds provided by the German Federal Foreign Office and provides financial support for non-German students in the final phase of their studies, who are performing very well und who will successfully complete their studies within one year. In addition, this scholarship may support non-German students who have run into financial difficulties through no fault of their own.
