Tuition and Funding


****Preliminary information *** Subject to change****

Tuition fees for international students (starting in the fall semester 2017/2018)

The tuition fees will affect all international students who are about to study in Germany at one of the universities in Baden-Württemberg from the fall semester 2017/18 on. The tuition fee will probably amount to € 1,500 per semester. Students who are already enrolled at one of the universities in Baden-Württemberg will not have to pay the tuition fee and will be able to graduate in their aspired degree program at their current university under the current conditions (retention of acquired rights). For further information see the homepage of our International Office.

This change will not apply to students who are EU citizens or citizens of a member state of the European Economic Area (EEA) as well as to refugees. If you are an EU citizens, a citizen of a member state of the European Economic Area (EEA), or a refugee you  do not have to pay tuition fees to participate in the M.A. program. However, you have to pay an administration fee of  € 139.35 per Semester. For further information see the homepage of our Student Services

Moreover, this change will neither affect foreign students who hold a German university entrance qualification (e.g. Abitur) nor students with established living conditions in Germany.

The University of Mannheim offers a differentiated scholarship system with more than 200 scholarships. The scholarship system is sustained by companies, alumni and foundations.
