BAföG – state financial support for students at BIMM Institute Berlin

Students on some courses* at BIMM Institute Berlin are entitled to apply for financial maintenance support during their studies funded by the Federal Education Authority. BAföG is otherwise known as the Federal Training Assistance Act.

This recognition by the Federal Education Authorities in Berlin reflects the academic quality of BIMM Institute’s undergraduate (bachelor degree) and postgraduate (master’s degree) courses.
