The AStA provides counselling on the so-called social loan, a loan which can be granted in cases where students find themselves in unpredictable financial stress without any fault of their own. The loans can be classified into short-term and long-term loans. Further information on how to apply for such a loan can be found under application.
As representatives of the student body, we want to offer support to all students, including those facing financial difficulties, so that they can continue their studies.
Therefore, the Student Parliament has appointed the Social Committee, a committee meeting in closed sessions to decide upon the applications after a conscientious and thorough review. Basis for their decisions are the Social Regulations of the Student Body.
Before each application, there is a personal interview with social affairs adviser during which all questions concerning the loan can be asked. We can also help you to find other financing options
There are no deadlines for submitting an application for a long-term or short-term social loan.
