We support students in difficult financial situations with a loan or grant.


The Flexi loan is a flexible temporary loan that students can use to bridge short-term financial bottlenecks. Students who are in need of economic support can apply for a loan of up to 3,000 euros. You are eligible to apply if you are at least in your second year of study and have not exceeded the standard period of study by more than four semesters. A guarantor is required for the loan - we can make an exception for loans of up to 1,500 euros.

  • up to 3,000 euros loan amount
  • Interest-free, administration fee of 2 % of the loan amount
  • Repayment begins no later than 12 months after exmatriculation

Social support (grant)

If you are in a considerable financial emergency and are studying in at least your 3rd semester, you can apply for social support in the form of a grant once a semester. Of course, we expect you to make a reasonable contribution to alleviating the situation at the same time.

Please note: The payment of the semester fee is not an unforeseen event and does not constitute a financial emergency per se. Applications that are solely based on the fact that the semester fee cannot be paid will not be processed and will be rejected.

The grant at a glance:

  • up to 300 euros one time
  • Can be applied for once per semester
  • Does not have to be repaid

All institutions that offer financial advice and/or financial support to students at Koblenz universities have joined forces in the "Netzwerk Studienfinanzierung" (Student Finance Network).

Tips for international students

Germany is a very attractive country for international students, especially due to the rare tuition fees. International students usually do not receive social benefits such as Bafög and have to cover their living costs themselves.

The Deutsches Studierendenwerk has summarized the most important information on financing studies for international students in a short video. The video is particularly informative on the subject of jobs and internships. There are also further tips and tricks.
