BAföG certificate

Requirements for the BAföG certificate in the bachelor's degree programs in physics and medical physics

According to § 48 of the Federal Education and Training Assistance Act (BAföG), a certificate must be provided at the end of the 4th semester stating that the "usual achievements" have been made. With a regular course of studies, approx. 120 credit points (LP) are achieved in four semesters. Of these approx. 120 LP, 80 LP must be achieved for the BAFöG certificate. This value applies to the bachelor's degree programs in physics and medical physics according to all examination regulations.

The certificate is issued by the Dean of Studies. Together with the form (Form 5), students submit a certificate of study and a grade certificate issued by the Central Examinations Office to the Office of the Dean of Studies. Unfortunately, the self generated grade report from BOSS cannot be used.

At this time, applications are processed electronically. Students please email the forms to the Office of the Dean of Students. The grade report from the Central Examination Administration can also be sent directly from there by e-mail to the Office of the Dean of Studies at the instigation of the student.

Location & approach

The campus of the Technical University of Dortmund is located near the freeway junction Dortmund West, where the Sauerland line A45 crosses the Ruhr expressway B1/A40. The Dortmund-Eichlinghofen exit on the A45 leads to the South Campus, the Dortmund-Dorstfeld exit on the A40 leads to the North Campus. The university is signposted at both exits.

The "Dortmund Universität" S-Bahn station is located directly on the North Campus. From there, the S-Bahn line S1 runs every 20 or 30 minutes to Dortmund main station and in the opposite direction to Düsseldorf main station via Bochum, Essen and Duisburg. In addition, the university can be reached by bus lines 445, 447 and 462. Timetable information can be found on the homepage of the Rhine-Ruhr transport association, and DSW21 also offer an interactive route network map.



One of the landmarks of the TU Dortmund is the H-Bahn. Line 1 runs every 10 minutes between Dortmund Eichlinghofen and the Technology Center via Campus South and Dortmund University S, while Line 2 commutes every 5 minutes between Campus North and Campus South. It covers this distance in two minutes.



From Dortmund Airport, it takes just over 20 minutes to get to Dortmund Central Station by AirportExpress and from there to the university by S-Bahn. A wider range of international flight connections is offered by Düsseldorf Airport, about 60 kilometers away, which can be reached directly by S-Bahn from the university's train station.
