Our university does not charge any application fees. These are the fees of enrolled students:
Each semester all students are required to pay an administration fee. It is due upon enrolment or at any re-registration for a following semester.
Tuition fees for international students or for a second degree
In Baden-Württemberg, international students (non-EU citizens) and students who are taking up a second degree have to pay a tuition fee since the winter semester 2017/2018. The tuition fee must be paid each semester in addition to the administration fee.
In some cases there are exception from the obligation to pay tuition fees. Before enrolment, applicants from non-EU countries or applicants for a second degree course will receive a form to assess whether the obligation to pay tuition fees actually applies.
The fees for the first semester have to be paid from abroad before enrolment, but after your visa approval.
The amount of the fees and detailed information can be found under Finances.
