Tuition

As a public university in Germany, Rhine-Waal University of Applied Sciences doesnot charge tuition.

Semester fee

The semester fee for summer semester 2016 is €271,22.

Semester fees are set by the Regulations on Contributions of both the Student Body and of the Student Service Organisation (Studentenwerk). The concrete amount varies slightly from semester to semester.

The semester fee for the coming summer semester 2016 consists of the following contributions:

  • Social security contribution: €79.00

The SemesterTicket is valid for an entire semester and is only available to students.

Funding

Financing your studies with a scholarship

Depending on the country you come from and which subject you would like to study in Germany, there are different options for funding. Scholarships are offered by different institutions.

The DAAD scholarship database for foreign students, graduate students and scientists contains extensive information and a variety of possibilities for those who are seeking financial support for their studies, research work or teaching assignments in Germany. The database not only lists all the scholarships offered by the DAAD, but also diverse programmes offered by a wide variety of institutions.

Types of support

There are two forms of scholarships financial and non-monetary scholarships both of which are often coupled together:

In the case of financial scholarships, the recipient is awarded a fixed amount, paid out on a monthly basis over a defined funding period. These types of scholarships are often full scholarships, i.e., they generally cover the applicants entire living expenses. Recipients of partial scholarships, however, are required to secure additional financial support to cover their living expenses. When awarded a full scholarship, recipients are generally not permitted to receive funding from other scholarships simultaneously.

Tuition fees in Germany

Every semester you must pay up to 500 Euros of tution fees at universities in Bavaria and Lower Saxony. All other federal states only request a certain amount of money as a semester contribution but no tuition fees.

In addition to financial support, many institutions also offer non-monetary scholarships. Recipients are invited to workshops, lectures and scientific conferences where they also have the opportunity to network with other scholarship holders. In most cases, these non-monetary scholarship programmes aim to create a long-standing relationship between the scholarship holder and the institution well beyond the scholarship period.

Remember: All the programmes have one thing in common, however no one is entitled to a scholarship.

StudyPortals Tip: Students can search online for independent or external scholarships that can help fund their studies. Check the scholarships to see whether you are eligible to apply. Many scholarships are either merit-based or needs-based.
