AFTER ADMISSION: COSTS AND FINANCE
Costs of Studying and Living
There are no tuition fees at University of Duisburg-Essen - this applies for international students as well. All students are, however, subject to a student body and social contribution fee per semester.
Information on living expenses in Germany can be found on the DAAD website.
Some scholarship applications can often only be made in the student's home country. If you are already studying it Germany, it will usually be too late to make an application. Applications for funding should be made in the student's home country (for exceptions see the next section: Funding options in Duisburg-Essen).
