Scholarships in Germany
Application opens for scholarships in Germany for international students from Africa and developing countries every year. These are either partial or full fee scholarships for undergraduate, master or PhD/doctoral degrees.
Studying For Free In Germany
16 states in Germany in the year 2014 put to an end to tuition fees for undergraduate students in all public German universities. This implies that at the moment undergraduates at public universities in Germany both domestic and international do not have to pay for their studies except a semester fee of around 200 euro.
Private institutions take exceptions to this as they depend on tuition fees for their funding; their fees can be as high as €20,000 a year (~US$24,400).
On the same note, Master’s degree at German universities are often free when they are regarded as “consecutive” – this means they follow directly from a related bachelor’s degree gained in Germany. Aside from this, there is a small fee per semester for enrolment.
There are courses that are taught in German and they require students to have a German language certificate from reputable awarding bodies while many courses in English require the Exam test certificate like TOEFL and IELTS. There are however exceptions to these requirements.
The DAAD scholarships remain the best for German and international students of all levels to study in German universities. Researchers also benefit from scholarships.
Cost Of Living In Germany
When placed side by side with some other European countries, Germany is not quite expensive. The cost of food, housing, clothing and cultural activities are arguably higher than the EU average. On average, students in Germany spend around 850 euros per month on living costs. Rent takes a large part of the expenses.
Student accommodation in Germanyon the average costs around €350 a month for university halls, rising to around €500 for a room in a shared house. Inexpensive cities such as Frankfurt and Munich, students pay in the region of €700 for a room in a shared house or flat and €400 – €500 for student accommodation.
