When is a grant for studies abroad given?

If you decide to go abroad for your training, the needs increase as follows:

  • € 16 to € 195 per month foreign supplement depending on the difference in purchasing power compared to the respective country; EU countries and Switzerland are excluded.
  • Up to € 4,600 for necessary tuition fees in the first year of study
  • Costs for an outward and return trip, each with a flat rate of € 250 within Europe and € 500 outside Europe.
  • Up to € 71 per month for an existing health insurance cover abroad
  • The increased requirement for travel and health insurance costs also applies to internships abroad.
