Bafög: Will the standard period of study be increased?

The standard period of study has not been increased until today. The basis for an “individual standard period of study” to extend the Bafög entitlement was a regulation issued by the state. This regulation (indv. RST) has so far only been valid in the summer semester 2020 and winter semester 2020/21. The state has not yet decided on an extension. The only contact for Bafög is the Bafögamt (Studierendenwerk).
