Financial hurdles should not be an obstacle to studying. For this reason, we support our students together with our cooperation partners. In the following, we give you an overview of how you can finance your studies at XU Exponential University. Our student advisory service will be happy to help you if you have any questions about your financing.
Fund your studies in Potsdam
All full-time courses at the XU Exponential University of Applied Sciences are eligible for BAföG. We also offer a particularly fair way to finance your studies:
→ Study now, pay later – the reverse intergenerational contract
Haven’t applied for BAföG yet because the paperwork is a pain?
→ BAföG – apply easily online via deinestudienfinanzierung.de.
In addition to these financing models, there is also the possibility to apply for a scholarship or a Support for Gifted Students. Details of all the options for financing your studies at the XU Exponential University of Applied Sciences can be found below.
Study now, pay later
We want you to be able to concentrate fully on your studies. That’s why we offer you, together with Chancen eG, a special, solidarity-based financing model: Start your studies without any financial burden and only pay back the tuition fees after the end of your studies. Depending on your later income, you will start repayments, enabling the next generation of digital rebels to study in the future.
You study at XU without financial burden
Only when you work do you pay back the tuition
After you graduate, you pay back the tuition fees, depending on your level of income, at conditions agreed with you in advance.
According to previous experience, you can deduct all your tuition fees from your taxes – this means you pay less tax and have more in your own pocket.
Digitally secure money for your studies
As a private university, XU Exponential University charges tuition fees. However, we believe that the future of young and bright people should not depend upon financial resources. There are many ways in which you can finance your studies. The best known is probably BAföG, but there are also student loans and education funds. But what is all this and how much money can you get? In short: There is a lot of half-knowledge about financing possibilities for your studies. For example, more than every 2nd student is entitled to the state support BAföG, but only much less submit their application at all. Mostly because they are too complicated and you have to deal with a lot of paperwork.
Save yourself the paperwork when applying for BAföG
Together with our partner deineStudienfinanzierung.de you can now easily calculate your individual monthly requirements. You can also find out in real time how much BAföG, a KfW student loan or financing through an education fund you are entitled to. In just 30 minutes you can put your studies in order, without any previous knowledge. You submit all the necessary data simply and automatically to all relevant offices via deineStudienfinanzierung.de. Your personal contact at deineStudienfinanzierung.de will accompany you as an expert through the process from handing in the documents until you receive your money. This is digital.
