Students who are not nationals of a member state of the European Union or another signatory state of the Agreement on the European Economic Area are fundamentally required to pay tuition fees. The fees for international students are EUR 1,500 per semester. The law provides for a few exceptions, however, whereby international students are exempt from tuition fees.
