Financial security and tuition fees

Proof of financial resources

In order to receive a study visa for Germany you will be required to present proof of financial resources. This serves as a guarantee that you can afford the cost of studying in Germany. Since January 2023 you are expected to demonstrate funds of 934 EUR per month / 11,208 EUR per year.

Tuition fees

The state finances the majority of higher education institutions in Germany. There are generally no fees for Bachelor’s courses or most Master’s courses at state higher education institutions. Tuition fees may have to be paid for certain continuing education Master’s programmes, but they are not particularly high compared to other countries. Private higher education institutions may demand more substantial fees for their degree programmes.

The Federal State of Baden-Württemberg has however decided to charge non-EU citizens tuition fees of EUR 1,500 per semester for (Bachelor’s, Master’s, Diplom and state examination) degree programmes from the 2017/18 winter semester onwards. These fees do not apply to doctoral students. Students who have already begun a degree programme in Baden-Württemberg but did not graduate by the 2017/18 WS will not be subject to the aforementioned fees.

Semester contribution

In Germany, all students at all higher education institutions must pay a semester contribution. This payment has nothing to do with tuition fees; rather, it covers your contributions to student services and the student government (AStA). At many higher education institutions it also includes a semester ticket that allows you to use public transport in the region. The semester contribution varies between higher education institutions and comes to between 100 and 350 EUR. It has to be paid when you enrol and before the start of every new semester. Whether you incur further costs relating to your studies, for example for materials such as specialist books and copies, depends on your subject.
