The intellectual orientation of the Academy of Visual Arts, Frankfurt is supported by a broad ‘Friends of’ association, the staff and representatives of industry. Thanks to this support, we are able to keep tuition fees as low as possible while maintaining our high teaching standards. As such, the “Studienfond” assumes 50% of the actual costs of study per student, to the order of 400 euros. The remaining 400 euros is paid by the student upon successful application. Tuition fees may be paid monthly at a rate of 400 euros or in total to the sum of 2,400 euros.
According to section 2 BAföG, students are eligible for the so-called “Schüler-BAföG” grant.
The amount of funding provided is oriented on needs, which depend on the following factors:
- Type of training course
- Living arrangements
- Health and care insurance subsidy
- Parents’ support obligation
- Location of training course / study programme
The “Schüler-BaföG” is a full grant and must not be repaid. Further information is available at: www.bafoeg-aktuell.de
