Support for training Authorisation for the visit of a training centre located abroad

In many cases, support for training can also be granted for a period of study or school training (including traineeships).

In order to promote a training stay abroad, you must prove the general requirements for the BAföG. If you do not receive financial support in Germany because of the economic circumstances of your parents, you can still apply for foreign funding, as this applies to different requirements.

Process flow

The application must be submitted in writing to the competent authority. This can also be done informally. However, the information required to establish the claim must be based on uniform forms in Germany.

Who should I contact?

Certain central offices for training support in Germany are responsible for foreign funding under the BAföG, depending on the country of destination.

This also applies if you already receive financial support in Germany or want to complete only part of your training or internship abroad.

Further information and the BAföG Foreign Office, which is responsible for your destination country, can be found on the following website:

Requirements

  • German citizen
  • foreign national depending on residence status
  • Maximum age 29 years, with a master's degree 34 years. However, exceptions to these age limits apply, for example, to second-level trainees or to trainees who raise their own child under the age of 10 when they reach the age limit of 30 years or 35 years.
  • Your achievements as an apprentice suggest that you will achieve the training goal. However, a special aptitude or talent for the chosen training is not required. It is sufficient to meet the level of performance that the respective training regulations consider sufficient.
  • Proof of a need for support for subsistence and training

Which documents are required?

  • Proof of income (for the trainee for the authorisation period, for parents in general tax notice of the penultimate calendar year)
  • any further application documents

What are the fees?

There are no charges.

What deadlines do I have to pay attention to?

Support for training shall be provided at the earliest from the beginning of the month in which training is started, but only after an application has been made.

Due to the more complex processing of applications for foreign funding, it is recommended to submit an application at least six months before the planned stay abroad.

Applications / forms

The forms are provided by the competent authority and are also available on the website of the Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF).

What else should I know?

If necessary, the higher rates of support for training abroad may also lead to the support of trainees who are domestically resident. receive no support because of the level of income of the parents.
For example, demonstrably necessary tuition fees are covered for a period of up to one year and up to a maximum of EUR 4,600. Supplements for travel to the place of training, health insurance and, if necessary (depending on the country of destination) for higher living costs are also possible.
