Freedom Through Solidarity

Income Share Agreement

With the Income Share Agreement, you can focus on your studies at the Asklepios Campus Hamburg, while CHANCEN eG takes care of your tuition fees – partially or in full. In exchange, you commit to affording future generations with the same opportunity. Once you start working as a doctor and earn above the minimum income threshold, you start making income-based repayments.

A Fair Financial Solution Where Repayments Are Based on Your Income

Study

CHANCEN eG takes care of your tuition fees so you can focus on your studies.

Repayments

Contrary to regular loans, your repayments are made to the CHANCEN eG community and they are based on your income. You do not have a fixed amount of debt, but rather a repayment plan that is tailored to suit your individual financial capacity.

Income Threshold

Repayments only start when you earn above the minimum threshold of 27.000 Euros brutto. This ensures that the repayment plan is only activated when you can really afford it.

Capped

The repayment value is capped and reaches a maximum amount. A high income does not mean that the repayments are excessively high.

What Asklepios Campus Hamburg says about the ISA

  • Dr. phil. Christoph Jermann

    Dr. phil. Christoph Jermann

    General Manager of Asklepios Medical School GmbH


    “It’s already in the name: the main focus of CHANCEN eG is on educational opportunities. We wanted to continue to offer these opportunities to our students through the ISA model in cooperation with a partner with a similar mindset and shared values. We have found this partner in CHANCEN eG, who, as a cooperative, is owned by its ISA holders. Together, we are striving for making the dream of studying medicine accessible for all qualified applicants – despite having to charge tuition fees as a private university.”

An Overview of our Financial Support

During your studies, we take care of your tuition fees, partially or completely. When you graduate, income based repayments are made to CHANCEN eG over a 8 year period. Should your annual income be less than 21,000 Euros, repayments are not required. Your repayment period is shifted to a time when you earn above the minimum income threshold. The relevant income is the positive income (gross) reduced by income-related expenses. The flat-rate deduction for self-employed persons is 16.4%.

You can combine your Income Share Agreement at ACH with an ISA you have previously concluded for your preclinical studies (e.g. at Semmelweis University Budapest). Please note that the combined income share of both ISAs may not exceed 15%.

Your ISA

How do ISA's work?

The first step towards your future is the decision to study at ACH. With the ISA you have the freedom to choose your desired degree.

As soon as you have been accepted at ACH, you can simply apply for support from CHANCEN eG. Complete the application form and select a date for your interview. Should you be a suitable member for our community we will offer you a contract. Please note you do not require collateral or surety.

You can completely focus on your studies. With the ISA your tuition fees are paid directly by CHANCEN eG to ACH. Once you have graduated you can take your time in deciding what the next steps on your career path will be. Maybe you would like to travel or specialise as a doctor?

As soon as your annual income exceeds 27.000 Euros you start repayments to CHANCEN eG, set at a fixed percentage of your total income. To calculate your individual annual repayments, your annual tax return statements are disclosed to us. Should you take a sabbatical or choose to study further your repayments are put on hold until you can afford to pay them again.

Your repayments ensure that future generations also have access to education using this fair financial model.

Your repayments are discontinued once you have reached the end of the repayment period, irrespective of the sum of money you have paid back. You are welcome to continue being a member of CHANCEN eG and engage in educational funding opportunities for future generations.
