funding your studies.

scholarships & co.

How to fund your studies is an important factor when choosing to continue your education at university. Therefore, we've complied a living expenses chart to help you see how much financial backing you will need and how to fund your lifestyle to make the most of student life:

An overview of expenses:

  • The Bavarian State Ministry supports academic education and therefore charges no tuition fees for all full-time EU/EEA students
  • We only charge a small student services fee of 72€ per semester for full-time EU/EEA students
  • International students please note our fee regulations and the exceptions they contain
  • In addition, all residents are required to pay a TV and radio licence fee


There are several opportunities to partially finance your studies through a scholarship, particuarly if you are an ambitious or talented student. We are happy to support you with your application and advise you about financial support.


The Bavarian State Ministry of Sciences, Research and the Arts supports advanced students and young university graduates with scholarships to drive the internationalisation of its higher education forward. These scholarships are generally awarded for one semester. The amount of funding is decided in a case-by-case process based solely on the respective individual's need. This amounts to between 100 and 615 euros per month. One-off study subsidies (at least 250 euros) are available in cases of particular hardship.


The programme primarily targets advanced students and younger university graduates who are either already studying in a degree programme that leads to a first degree with professional qualification or who have registered for a post-graduate or Master's programme at a Bavarian university.Applicants are selected on the basis of academic credentials, personal qualification, experience, need, and other relevant factors. The amount of funding is decided in a case-by-case process based solely on the respective individual's need and the funds available.

BayBIDS is supported by Bavaria University (registered society) and the Bavarian Ministry of Science, Research and Art. The project originated in 2008, with the initiative coming from the German Academic Exchange Service and the partner-school initiative of the Foreign Office. The project was set up to promote cooperation between German schools abroad and German partner-schools with Bavarian universities.

BayBIDS regularly awards scholarships to graduates of German schools abroad, who begin their studies in Bavaria. Visits to partner schools abroad are also financed. See the website for all details.



This financial support programme is for German or international students who are fully-integrated and have their long-term perspectives in Germany (e.g. European citizens or students with long term residential visas). Grants are based on personal assets, wages earned and parental or partner income.

More information can be found (in German) at www.bafoeg.de.
