Financial possibilities

Overview of the financial possibilties for further education at the HNE Eberswalde


The German Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF) launched the training credit program, to mobilize more people for occupational further education— especially people that until now had to bear the costs for further education based on their income. The most known component of the training credit is the premium voucher. You receive the premium voucher straight after the counseling session in one of the 600 training credit counseling centers. You hand out the premium voucher to your further education provider and pay only your own share for the further education. You can receive the premium voucher all 2 calendar years. The following conditions must be respected:

  • Only event fees of the further education up to max. 1000€ are sponsored

  • the state covers 50 percent of the event fee

  • the minimum age is 25 years

  • gainful employment for at least 15 hours per week

  • taxable annual income of at least 20.000€ (or 40.00€ for married couples assessed jointly)

  • the further education program has to be officially recognized or a written documentation template of the quality process is required
