BAföG is the abbreviation for Bundesausbildungsförderungsgesetz, or Federal Training Assistance Act, which provides state funding for high school and university students to pursue education and training. The stated aim of BAföG is to enable young people to take up education or training, even where their individual social and economic circumstances might not allow it.
A Transcript of Records printed out from the C@mpus-platform or issued by the Examination Office is sufficient proof of regular studies for the BAföG-Office. Form N° 5 does not need to be filled out additionally.
The Department of Physics has defined the following number of credits accounted by the BAföG-Office as a regular course of study.
These minimal requirements apply without exemption.
Upon completion of the 2nd semester: 42 ECTS
Upon completion of the 3rd semester: 54 ECTS
Upon completion of the 4th semester: 82 ECTS
Upon completion of the 5th semester: 98 ECTS
Teacher Education Degree (nach GymPO I)

Upon completion of the 2nd semester: 16 ECTS
Upon completion of the 3rd semester: 26 ECTS
Upon completion of the 4th semester: 35 ECTS
Upon completion of the 5th semester: 41 ECTS
Only ECTS Credit points acquired in the respective curriculum are valid, modules of the master program are not valid in this calculation.
