Financing your studies

Can I afford to study at a private university?

We are one of the oldest private universities in Germany and we believe in the principle of independent teaching and research. This independence is demonstrated in our many years of experience in university education, referrals from successful alumni, and our award-winning CORE Principle. However, since we know that it is difficult for many people to take on tuition fees, we also feel it is important to be there to support you.
