The Ministry of Science, Research and the Arts Baden-Württemberg is planning to introduce tuition fees for international students coming to Baden-Württemberg to pursue academic studies. The tuition fees are to be imposed from winter semester 2017/18 for students who begin their studies in Baden-Württemberg. Once the respective law has taken effect, you must expect to pay tuition fees amounting to *1,500 EUR per semester starting from winter semester 2017/18. Please find further information on the Ministry's website.
