Tuition Fees

Tuition Fees

The new tuition fees and semester fees at our new partner university from October 2019 at HMKW are 670 Euro per month. Which is 8040 Euro per year and in total for the two years 16.080 Euro. There are no additional hidden costs.

The full course fee is 16,080€. You can choose to pay per semester installments, in annual instalments or pay in full up-front (you will receive a discount for full up-front payment!). If you choose to pay per semester your fees will be 4020 € per semester.

New Students must only keep in mind any additional costs arising from health insurance (approx. 90 €/month) as health insurance coverage is required for the whole duration of your study in case you want to stay in Germany. Please find detailed information on health insurance here: https://www.fu-berlin.de/en/studium/international/studium_fu/einreise_aufenthalt/krankenversicherung/index.html

The costs for traveling and accommodation for the on-campus classes and fieldwork periods need to be considered as well.
