The University of Hamburg supports its international students on their way to the successful completion of their degrees with degree completion grants.

Amount of funding / funding period
As a rule, the funding period for degree completion grant is 6 months. The maximum amount of funding is €720 per month. Also, the amount of each grant is calculated according to the criteria stipulated in the German federal training assistance act.
If the final examination is not completed within the 6-month period, an extension may be requested. The maximum funding period is 12 months.

Moreover, students pursuing Diplom, Magister, or Staatsexamen degrees may apply for a 12-month grant with their first application.

The following groups are excluded from funding:

  • international students who fulfill the requirements of Section 8 of the German federal training assistance act

  •  not German citizens;
  •  not eligible for BAföG (federal student loan scheme);
