In Germany, it is customary for parents to support their children until the end of their studies if financially possible.
So-called “child allowance“ or Kindergeld in German, normally paid to the parents by the state for a child up to the age of 25 attending university, is often used to support the child directly. Thus a small part is already financed. Refugee families also have the opportunity to receive child allowance if they have the appropriate residence status.
Other models of partial financing by the family are of course conceivable and individually different.
