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).
