Study Fees

Fees for Home | EU | EEA Students

Currently, there is no tuition fee charged for higher education at public universities in Baden-Württemberg for home students, EU students, students of the European Economic Area (EEA), students with official refugee status, Erasmus students and for any nationals who have received their general qualification for university entrance in the Federal Republic of Germany. Hence, any students belonging to one of the aforementioned categories are not required to pay for undergraduate studies. Their fees are paid by the State of Baden-Württemberg.

However, universities do require their students to pay a semester contribution towards the administration costs and student services. Student services provide many benefits, like discounted tickets for public transport or a student ID for discounts at various public institutions and newspaper subscriptions. The current contribution amounts is approx. 200 EUR per semester according to university. Hochschule der Medien charges 186.– EUR per semester. Costs are subject to change. Additional German language courses are optional, but are recommended for non German native speakers.

Fees for International Students

The State of Baden-Wurttemberg has introduced tuition fees for international students. The law stipulates that international students are required to pay 1,500 euros per semester (6 months) as the universities are requested by the government to offer international students specific support during their studies.

Hochschule der Medien has committed to providing a world-class education and access to the very best professors, teachers, resources and support. Therefore, we invest significantly more than the amount of the fee on each student every semester.

Note: The costs listed below are subject to change. The actual costs will be displayed on our Service Platform. You may use our Service Platform for booking your accommodation in Stuttgart. Here you will also find additional service packages. The Service Platform can only be accessed by students applying for admission.
