A well-ordered life is like climbing a tower; the view halfway up is
better than the view from the base, and it steadily becomes
finer as the horizon expands William Lyon Phelps

Corona pandemic: bridging aid for students in financial emergency situations

The Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF) is helping students who are demonstrably in a financial or economic emergency situation owing to the corona pandemic with allowances totalling 100 million euros. They are paid out via the student service organisations – the Studierenden- or Studentenwerk (STW).

Note: You can apply for bridging aid online as of 16th of June 2020 on. However, for technical reasons, we will only be able to process and assess the applications and initiate payments after the 25th of June 2020. Support from 100€ to 500€ a month.

2. How can I prevent a quarantine?

The quarantine does not affect people who can present a medical certificate in German or English, which confirms that there is no evidence of an infection with the SARS-CoV-2-coronavirus. A negative finding from a specialist medical laboratory, which has been carried out in a member state of the European Union or another state published by the Robert Koch Institute based on a molecular biological test for the presence of an infection, is considered a medical certificate. If the test is carried out before entry, the result must not be older than 48 hours before the entry; the certificate. The negative test result must be kept for at least 14 days.
Please note that the test must be carried out on the student's private bill. The costs can vary and are not covered by the health department.

3. Where can I get tested?

- Testing can be carried out in any country listed in the above link. (Information on testing outside of Germany would have to be obtained from the respective local authorities).- Various service providers currently offer testing at the airports in Frankfurt and Hamburg. Please contact your airport operator for more detailed information.- If a test has not been carried out abroad or at the airport, you can contact your local family doctor or general practitioner. Currently, only a few family doctor's offices carry out these tests and it takes up to 3 days until the result is available. Important to note: Until the negative test result is available, the travellers have to isolate themselves in a suitable accommodation in Flensburg. This means that students who do not have a negative test result on entry are not allowed to use shared accommodation until the result is available. This also applies, of course, if the test result is positive for 14 days.

4. How do I announce my entry dates?

Persons entering from a risk area are obligated to report to the health office in Flensburg. The following personal data is required:
Last name, first name, date of birth, adress, telephone number or e-mail adress, date of entry and home country.
In order to simplify contacting us, we provide you with appendix 2. The appendix lists all the data that we need from the respective traveler. Students are welcome to send us Appendix 2 by email (
