Cooperation agreement with social enterprise Chancen eG
Solidarity-based financing of education is the idea behind the so called “inverse contract between student generations” which the Witten social enterprise Chancen eG offers to students as an innovative mode of payment for tuition fees after graduation, related to a graduate’s income. Complementing the existing attractive financing models, the inverse contract aims to ensure that studies at MHB are not a question of money but personality and suitability.
Jennifer Gierke moved from North Rhine-Westphalia to Brandenburg for her medical studies. She has opted for payment after graduation because this leaves her a maximum of freedom in curricular organization as well as later specialization: “Repayment rates will not be pre-fixed but based on my actual income at that time. This income-dependent payment mode is without risk for me, and certainly a fair and socially acceptable way to finance university studies.”
