Fees & Funding

Registration & Tuition fees

Study at Heidelberg University costs 152,30 euros per semester (there are special fees for continuing education and existing non-consecutive master's degree programmes). The amount is due at the beginning of each semester on re-registration, i.e. must be paid at time of enrolment. More information on the fees can be found on the website of the university.

An important note for international students

Starting in the winter semester 2017/18, international students from non-EU (European Union) and non-EEA (European Economic Area - Iceland, Lichtenstein, Norway) countries with a foreign university entrance qualification will be required to pay a tuition fee of EUR 1500 per semester for Bachelor’s/Staatsexamen and consecutive Master’s degree programmes at all institutions of higher education in Baden-Württemberg (Germany).

Furthermore, this regulation only applies to students who intend to start their degree programme in the winter semester 2017/18 or those who intend to change their (entire) degree programme or institution of higher education. Students who were already enrolled at Heidelberg University in the summer semester 2017, and intend to continue in the same degree programme in the winter semester 2017/18 are exempt from these tuition fees. In this case, the grandfather clause will apply. A component of the previous degree programme may be changed once without incurring an obligation to pay tuition fees.

International students who come to Heidelberg University from a different institution of higher education will be subject to tuition fees at Heidelberg University
This fee amounts to 1500€/semester. Tuition fees must also be paid by all German and international students studying for a second degree (650€/semester).

Further information on the introduction of tuition fees in the winter semester 2017/18 is available on the website of the Ministry for Science, Research and Art of Baden-Württemberg.
The University also provides an information page updated with the current regulations.
