No tuition fees are required except for a fee of 100 Euro at the end of the program for the final Master exam including the Master thesis. In addition a fee of currently 261 Euro is required per term for matriculation at the Goethe-University. This fee includes free public transport in Frankfurt and surroundings.


The MSc program does not offer scholarships. Students may apply for German funding sources such as the DAAD - German Academic Exchange Service and other sources (scholarship database).


Students will need to organize their own accommodation. Limited space in Student Housings is available. In case of difficulties, the coordinator is willing to advise you. Living costs in Frankfurt may range from about 600 to 800 Euros per month per person.

Health Insurance

All students who are not European Union citizens will require a German health insurance. Such insurance will cover the costs of most medical treatments (including dental care) in Germany.
