overview of fees

Bavaria is a favourite destination for international students with global mindsets. Snuggled in the bottom corner of Southern Germany, we are Bavaria's multi award-winning and most international University of Applied Sciences, with almost half of our student population from over 100 countries around the world. As our student population grows, our focus is to maintain and improve our exceptionally high standards and service-orientated student support.

Therefore, as a state-funded institution, minimal fees are charged to non-EU internationals to finance and sustain the quality of education and support infrastructure that is provided especially for the benefit of international students within the university. If you are a non- EU/EEA international applicant, please read through this information carefully. These fees will affect you.
