Costs and Financial Aid
The program is tuition free.
However, upon enrollment you must pay a (per) semester fee composed of the social contribution to the student union, a contribution to the student body, and the enrollment fee. Furthermore, you pay for a public transportation ticket. This adds up to € 250 to 300 per semester.
Your expenses for housing and living in Berlin will depend on your lifestyle and personal preferences. Berlin allows you to live quite well on a modest budget as affordable housing is widely available.
If you are not insured through a private health insurance in your home country and if you are not an EU citizen or you do not come from a country that has signed a social security agreement with Germany, you need to figure approximately € 60 per month for basic student health coverage.
