The tuition fees for the postgraduate, four-semester Master's Program will cost 6,000 EUR. Students can either pay the total sum before admission or pay a monthly rate of 250 EUR. Additionally, students have to pay a semester fee (currently of 309.50 EUR) to the University of Applied Sciences Bonn-Rhein-Sieg. This fee includes administrative costs, studentship fee as well as a ticket for use of public transport in the area's traffic network. The fee is subject to change.

There are different ways of financing your studies:


We are granting scholarships to up to 10 applicants each year. Prospective students from developing countries can apply for the scholarship. The scholarship covers the cost of living and accommodation. The tuition fees and the flight will also be reimbursed. A committee will decide which applicants are to receive a scholarship after the application deadline has expired.

Scholarship recipients will write their Master’s thesis and complete the degree in their home country.


In addition to the abovementioned scholarship, there is the possibility to finance your own living costs (approx. 800 EUR per month), the semester fee (currently 309.50 EUR) and the tuition fees of 250 EUR per month over the course of all four semesters (6,000 EUR in total).

You will find a list of countries eligible for funding, information about the costs of living in Germany and other relevant documents in our FAQ section.
