Financing of studiesfor international students

Scholarships and financial support

Financial worries represent a major hurdle for a successful course of studies. For this reason, we try as much as possible to advise and support international students. The Center for International Students is your first stop for questions on the financing of the study in Osnabrück.

The following passages give you an overview of the scholarships and other possibilities for financial support. But we want to point out that there is no guarantee for a scholarship. Therefore, you should not rely on it because not everyone can receive this support.
