Programs of the International Center

In exceptional cases international students from outside the EU can apply for an interim financial aid during the final examination period. Students who are married to an EU-citizen or who have an unlimited residency permit for an EU-country cannot apply for the programme.

  2. have sucessfully carried out their studies, and
  3. have a well-founded prospect of passing their examinations by the end of the given financial assistance period.
     

The interim financial aid can be granted before the final examinations (i.e. Bachelor, Master, Staatsexemen ). Due to the high number of applicants, an avarage amount of 3 months is usually granted. Certain exceptions apply to medical students. Additional information, including the necessary application forms, are available at the International Offices of Universities in Schleswig-Holstein.

The selection of stipends is done by a committee that consists of representatives of the International Center of CAU, the Studentenwerk and the AStA.
