Student Council Geography

The Student Council consists of students from our institute who work voluntarily for the interests of the student body. In addition to the networking of its members, its tasks also include providing advice on all aspects of studying.

It offers fixed office hours, but also the possibility to make individual appointments. Further information can be found on its website.

BAföG representative for the subject Geography: Prof. Dr. Bernd Marschner

Here is some information before you knock on my door:

Proof of suitability after the 4th semester:

BAföG is granted for the first 4 semesters. In order to receive a follow-up grant, you must prove at the end of the 4th semester that you have completed the required work up to that point. I will certify this on form 5 (available in analog and digital form from the BAföG office) if you prove to me with the help of your eCampus printout that you have

  • as a BSc-student all courses from the first 4 semesters
  • as a BA-student you have attended modules in the subject Geography with a total of at least 41 CPs

and, with a few exceptions, have passed them. You should have missing entries handwritten by the respective lecturers before coming to me. 

Application for graduation funding

If you wish to apply for a full loan beyond the maximum funding period until graduation, I must certify that this is indeed possible within a maximum of one year. For this I also need a complete VSPL printout and the form available at the BAföG office. 

BAföG abroad 

As a BAföG recipient, you have the possibility to receive increased funding rates for studying abroad. As a rule, the tuition fees incurred are also covered. If you do not receive BAföG in Germany only because your parents earn too much, you still have a chance to receive funding abroad, because the funding amounts - especially outside the EU and Switzerland - are much higher than in Germany. The application for BAföG abroad should be submitted to the responsible BAföG office (depending on the country to which the trip is to go) six months before the start of the time abroad.
