Tuition Fees

German Universities

Germany consists of 16 federal states, and all of them have their own education policies, which means they could decide whether their public universities should charge any tuition fees and how much should they charge for both local and international students.  

After the state of Lower Saxony decided to abolish tuition fees in October 2014, all public universities in Germany do not charge any tuition fees at bachelor's level anymore now.

For master's programmes, some public universities remain free of charge, while some come with tuition fees, but they are not as high as other English-speaking countries. 

This applies to both German-taught and English-taught degree programmes. Exceptions are MBA-programmes, summer language courses and some very specific programmes. Private universities do charge higher tuition fees, and it is possible that they could charge up to 20,000 Euro per year.
