Tuition fees for international students

From winter semester 2017/18 onwards, international students wishing to study and pursue a degree in Germany who are not EU nationals (third-country nationals) must pay tuition fees amounting to 1,500 EUR per semester. Tuition fees need not be paid by third-country nationals permanently residing in Germany, e.g., persons who did their Abitur in Germany, are married to a German national or are recognised refugees. 
Students pursuing a second degree in Germany must pay 650 EUR per semester.  As a rule, your programme will count as a second degree if you have already completed a bachelor’s and master’s degree in Germany. 
Should you be liable to tuition fees, you will receive a notification of fees in addition to your letter of admission. Please take note of this notification and promptly return the corresponding information sheet.  If you receive no notification of tuition fees, you are not liable to such fees.
