What we do.

We support students in financing their studies. Our student loan is awarded regardless of age, number of semesters studied, and subject studied. Regardless of whether you are studying full-time, part-time or part-time - as long as you are enrolled at one of our member university, you can apply for a student loan from the Studentische Darlehnkasse e.V.. In addition, we also support mandatory internships, the practical year and semesters abroad.

We pay out between 100 and 750 euros per month, depending on your wishes and needs. An additional one-time payment of up to 1,500 euros for study-related purchases is also possible. The payment period is limited to 3 years (6 semesters). The maximum limit for the total amount is 27,000 euros. Which phase of your studies you are in at the time of application is irrelevant for the application.

The student loan is offered at a fixed interest rate. Apart from the interest, there are no further costs or processing fees. The loan bears interest at 3,95% p.a in the 1. year, 3,95% p.a. in the 2. year and 4,95% p.a. in the 3. year.

After the end of the disbursement phase, a six-month grace period begins. The rate of repayment in the first year is 125 EUR if the loan amount is less than 9,000 EUR. If the loan amount is between 9,001 to 18,000 EUR, it is 150 EUR. From a loan amount of 18,001 EUR, the first installment is 175 EUR. The rate of repayment increases annually by 25 EUR.
