Loan/One-off grants

One-off subsidies can be granted in exceptional cases. These are only made available in special cases of hardship and there is no sure entitlement. Claims are assessed on a case-by-case basis. Further information on this option can be discussed in a detailed counselling interview organised through the Information Centre of the Studierendenwerk Münster.



We can offer an interest-free loan to students with average examination results who are not eligible for BAföG (Germany’s financial aid for students) or other funding opportunities and who find themselves in a financial emergency through no fault of their own. This is done after an intensive case-by-case assessment and only in acute emergency situations.


Please contact us. We will be happy to help.


Further offers can be found in the General Student Committees (AStA) of the universities, which also provide advice and interest-free loans.
