All of the forms you need to apply, and information to help you fill out your application, are available from Studentenwerk in Chemnitz as well as in Zwickau. You can also download the forms from: www.das-neue-bafoeg.de.
Alternatively, you can apply online. This website takes you through every part of the application and provides important information as you go. Once you’ve completed the forms, just print them out and submit them to the Office of Financial Study Assistance (“Amt für Ausbildungsförderung”).
BAföG funding is normally awarded for a 12 month period (approved period, “BWZ”), after which you will have to make a new application.
Documents submitted by email are only accepted in PDF format (max. 5 MB per file).
