Postgraduate studies: BaföG Master Funding Conditions

There are different ways to finance a construction study. Probably the best option: BAföG, because you will receive a non-interest-bearing loan and a subsidy for certain types of postgraduate studies, while for others you will only receive a full-interest loan. And unfortunately, in order to apply for these grants, you must fulfill certain conditions. Master BAföG, however, is not possible at all, since this is not paid for studies.

Bachelor and Master have to build on each other

§ 7 Abs. 1a BAföG provides for the promotion of a postgraduate course of studies, ie a postgraduate degree, only if the student is consecutively based on a Bachelor's degree course and the trainee has not yet completed a course of study other than the Bachelor's degree. It is irrelevant whether or not the trainee was acquired in Germany or abroad.

Rather, it is important that the bachelor's and master's programs have two related, graduated parts with a uniform examination procedure, and that the exam at the end of the first part is both a professional qualification and a prerequisite for continuing the course (consecutive, not postgraduate).

Working between the degrees

In this case, the passed first (Bachelor) examination does not count as a professional qualification for the duration of the immediately following second part of the training.
There is no need for a temporal connection between the bachelor's degree and the subsequent course.

They may have been employed between the two study sections. On the contrary, professional activity can even be an advantage: if you have been working for three years or more, you will receive funding according to § 11,3 sentence no. 4 BAföG without consideration of your parents' income.

case studies

  1. 1 example: If you have a bachelor's degree in biology and would now like to put the master on top, then you have a chance of success with your BAföG application.
  2. 2 example: If you already have a diploma or another degree, a Master's degree is only promoted as a second course in the special case (the corresponding regulations can be found in chapter 3.2).
  3. 3 example: On the other hand, if you want to do your Master's degree alongside your profession, you can not count on any funding - according to the BAföG, only full-time study programs are currently funded.

bridging

If you have completed your Bachelor's degree and have not yet begun your Master's degree, BAföG is granted a maximum of one month. This means: The grant ends with the passing of the bachelor's degree examination, even if this is not at the end of the semester. If the Master's program starts in the following semester and is more than one month in between, you will have to do without the BAföG. After all, the preparation for a master's post-bachelor's degree is not an eligible training.

Hurdle age limit

Probably the biggest hurdle in the BAföG application for a construction study: the age limit. If you wish to apply for BAföG, you must never be older than thirty (§ 10,3 BAföG) if this is consecutive (more exact definition in the next section) at the beginning of the postgraduate studies.

There are, however, various exceptions in the non-consecutive and further- For example for graduates of the second educational pathway, professionals with no formal university entrance qualification who have been enrolled at a university for their professional qualifications, or for persons who are prevented from personal (eg illness) or family (eg child rearing) reasons were training before completion of the 30. Year.

Exception at the age limit

An exception to the age limit is, however, only possible if the trainee immediately after, For example, to gain access to higher education, or to prevent him from taking up an education, has begun his training.

The age limit is also not applicable for trainees who demonstrate that they were victims of political persecution in the GDR (BAföG § 60,1) by providing a so-called rehabilitation certificate. Further information on further exemptions from the age limit is given by the authorities for training promotion. If an exception to the age limit is possible with you, you can have a request for a preliminary ruling according to BAföG §46,5 sentence 1 No. 4 cleared before the start of the training.

Attention

This derogation from this age rule applies only to non-consecutive and advanced master's courses; In the case of consecutiveCourses, however, they are applied only in the case of a Bachelor's degree, since the beginning of this part of the study is regarded as the beginning of the study and not the beginning of the master's course.
