Baden-Württemberg charges fees for non-EU students

VU International News and Reviews No. 102 December 04 2017

December 2017

Starting winter semester 2017/18, universities in Baden-Württemberg will begin charging tuition fees for non-EU international students. The government defends the step as a way to keep the system open to these students whilst maintaining quality standards and also points to the more intensive advisory services for foreign students. The fees will be modest in comparison to full-cost tuition fees in the Anglo-American world or the Netherlands: 1,500 euros per semester.

The system will not apply to EU and EEA students or to foreigners who went to school in Germany.
