There are conditional and unconditional loans.
Study loans include:
- basic study grant,
- supplementary study grant,
- public transport student travel pass
- interest-bearing loan,
- tuition fee credit (introduced in school year 2007/2008).
The basic study grant, the supplementary study grant (save the first year) and the public transport student travel pass are conditional loans and performance-related, i.e. the debt is cancelled, if the student achieves satisfactory results.
Interest-bearing loan and tuition fee credit are unconditional loans and repayment is obligatory.
