News about the subsidy WiSe 23/24

Dear applicants,

We are currently receiving many enquiries about the status of your WiSe 23/24 applications. We are on the home stretch and will send out your notifications within the next few weeks, we will keep you posted here when exactly.

We would like to remind you once again that it was unclear for a long time if and how things would continue with the semester ticket and thus also with our office, which led to considerable delays in work processes on all fronts. However, we are catching up again and you can all help: At the moment, for example, it is particularly important to inform us immediately of any changes of address and/or bank details, as this is the only way we can ensure that the money actually reaches you.

Best regards and until the next post,

your Semtix crew

Your Semtix Team

Dear all,

we are uploading the applications for the summer semester today, January 30, 2024.

Unfortunately, some students are excluded from the Deutschlandsemesterticket and therefore from the subsidy:

  • Guest students and secondary students within the meaning of the relevant Higher Education Act,
  • Students who are exclusively enrolled in an evening, online or distance learning course without compulsory attendance (“distance learning students”),
  • Students in part-time study programs,
  • Students who can prove that they are taking a semester off or a semester abroad,
  • Students who are not members of the student body,
  • Students who are completing a course of study in part time 25% per semester,
  • Students who are enrolled on supplementary, additional or postgraduate courses or are taking part in continuing education courses and doctoral students.

Some of the other information on our homepage is no longer up to date and will have to be gradually updated in line with the new German semester ticket.

In Solidarity



Update: SoSe24 application forms will be online soon

Good news: The Deutschlandsemesterticket will be available at HU in SoSe24.

The subsidy from the social fund and the semester ticket office depend on the existence of the semester ticket. Due to the uncertainties and last minute decisions regarding the future of the semester ticket, which came shortly before the winter break, we are only now able to say with certainty that the subsidy will be available in SoSe24.

For this reason, the application period has been postponed by a few weeks. We will upload the application forms at the beginning of February and you will have just as much time as usual to send us your applications. This will not have any negative impact on the application process.

SoSe24 Updates

Dear applicants,

We are currently processing and prioritising WiSe23/24 applications. Please keep in mind the following information while we continue with this process:

– The situation of the existence of the Semesterticketbüro is till this date, uncertain.

– We are understaffed and there‘s currently a hiring freeze.

– As a result of the first two points, we don‘t have the information on how you can apply for the SoSe24 subsidy. Similarly: no information yet about any possibility of individual payments for SoSe24.

We sincerely apologise for the inconvenience and any additional struggles that this may create.

We will post here any new updates.
