Financial support

It is always worth checking whether financial support can be claimed for a German course. Various possibilities are available.

The Bildungsgeld Update, the Individualförderung and the Weiterbildungsbonus Tirol are among the most important subsidies that private individuals in Tyrol can apply for for German courses. Also language course support measures of the ÖIF (Austrian Integration Fund) are often relevant.

The Deutschkoordination Tirol, which was set up on behalf of Land Tirol, now offers an overview of the language course subsidies mentioned and their requirements.

Which language course subsidy is actually the right one depends on the individual circumstances of the applicant as well as on the course itself. It is important that the application and the required documents are submitted on time.

Please note that this list is not exhaustive. Depending on the situation (e.g. unemployment or application by companies), other subsidies may be eligible. In addition, subsidy opportunities and conditions change frequently.

Tip: Don't forget to talk to your employer about the topic of language courses - they may also have interesting information for you.

It is also recommendable to clarify whether your course costs can be taken into account for tax purposes.
