Easier communication thanks to the BAföGdirekt App
The Bavarian Student Unions and the Bavarian State Ministry for Science and Art gave the go-ahead for the BAföGdirekt App on 23rd October 2018 in Munich.
Above all, the new app simplifies communication with the Educational Maintenance Office: When applying for BAföG, you can find out which office is responsible for your application and can call or email it directly from within the app. You can also use your smartphone or tablet to take pictures of documents, such as bank statements or your parents’ tax assessment notes, and send them directly to the office responsible for your application. Furthermore, you can check the status of your application – and there is also the option of receiving push notifications.
Students can still file the actual application for BAföG on the website www.bafoeg-bayern.de, which can now also be accessed via the app.
The BAföGdirekt App is available for the operating systems iOS (Apple) and Android (Google) and can be downloaded free of charge from the App Store or Google Play Store.
