Germany

BU is visiting Germany in November

A BU representative will be visiting Germany from 17th to 27th November 2019. This trip will take us to Frankfurt, Heidelberg, Cologne and Dusseldorf! If you would like to arrange a one-2-one information session, please email Luciana Figueiredo, the Regional Manager for Germany.

About us

We have a large community of international students at BU – currently 1,600 students from around 140 different countries.

We are always happy to welcome new German students onto our undergraduate, postgraduate, research and top-up courses. We are also proud to offer a number of exchange programmes in partnership with several German universities.

We will help you with your application to study at BU, but if you’d like more general advice about the UK education system, visas, scholarships or the variety of courses on offer, you should contact the British Council in Germany.

Funding eligibility for EU Undergraduate students

EU students applying for university places in the 2020/21 academic year will continue to be eligible for student fee loans and may be eligible for the government Maintenance Loan* - this will be for the duration of their course. Further information about undergraduate funding can be found on the gov.uk website.

*EU nationals must have been resident in the UK for at least five years or be EEA migrant workers in order to apply for the government Maintenance Loan.

Funding eligibility for EU Postgraduate students

EU students studying a Master's degree in 2019/20 and 2020/21 may be eligible for some funding. The UK government is providing up to £10,906 in postgraduate loans for January 2020 entry and £11,222 for September 2020 and January 2021. If eligible, you would receive the first payment after your course start date, once we have confirmed that you have registered. Each year's amount will be paid in three instalments of 33%, 33% and 34%. The instalments will be paid directly to you at the beginning of each term. 

You can find more information on the gov.uk website.
