A contribution for the student services (Studierendenwerk) and an administrative fee for the university must be paid. The South Asia Institute does not charge fees. The fees are currently 171.80 €
(special tuition fees apply for continuing and existing non-consecutive Master's programs). The amount is due at the beginning of each semester upon re-registration, or must be paid as part of the matriculation process.
An important note for international students
International students from countries outside the member states of the European Union (EU) or the European Economic Area (EEA) with a foreign university entrance qualification must pay tuition
fees of 1,500 € per semester at all universities in the state of Baden-Württemberg for undergraduate degree programs and for consecutive master's degree programs.
Fees for a second degree
Students who begin a second degree program after earning a university degree in the Federal Republic of Germany pay second degree fees of 650 € per semester (e.g. for a second BA or a second MA).
This fee is not charged if students already pay the international tuition fee.

Furthermore, the University's Student Council (Studierendenrat) offers an overview of the possibilities to be exempted from tuition fees on this page.
