In Baden-Württemberg, tuition fees are generally not charged for Bachelor's degree programs and consecutive Master's degree programs.
Tuition fees may be charged for some of our part-time master's programs, especially for programs offered jointly with other institutions and sponsors. For more information, please refer to the relevant study programs.
Every semester each student has to contribute administration fees.
Fees for International Students
Students who are not nationals of a member state of the European Union or another state party to the Agreement on the European Economic Area are generally required to pay tuition fees in Baden-Württemberg. The amount of fees for international students is 1500,- Euro per semester.
The law provides for a few exceptional cases in which international students are not required to pay fees. If you fulfill these and prove this in time before enrollment or re-registration by appropriate documents, you do not have to pay the tuition fees for international students. Read more
