There are different possibilities for financing the studies. Besides the private support - normally by the parents - there is BAföG (student loan), scholarships and student jobs in- and outside of university to finance the studies.

There exist many student jobs that can be taken by students from the third semester on. The job exchange for students offers an overview of open positions of the whole university and also of jobs outside of it.

To check if you are eligible to get the student loan BAföG you should address the student union Studentenwerk at an early stage. You can apply for scholarships before your studies or at the start of them. Additional to the conventional scholarships of the organisations for the promotion of young talents in the past years years the Deutschlandstipendium and the Landesstipendium Niedersachen were set up which are awarded annually.
