Attending Niedersächsisches Studienkolleg costs:
- 30 Euro registration fee for the entry exam
- 250 Euro tuition fee (per semester)
- ca. 300 Euro semester contribution (per semester)
Should you prefer to take the University Entrance Examination as an external applicant, you will have to pay a participation fee of 200 Euro.
For the duration of the foundation course, participants have the status of students of Leibniz University Hannover. This means that participants, like students, have to pay the respective semester contribution (see above), but in return they will be able to use the semester ticket for free public transportation in the Hannover region and beyond.
Foundation course participants also need health insurance. Unfortunately, participants cannot be part of the student health insurance, but will have to take a private insurance. Find the most important information on health insurance here.
All in all, average living costs add up to about 819 Euro per month. Since there are usually no scholarships for first-year-students, participants of the Studienkolleg will have to raise this amount by themselves. However, you may be eligible to apply for a scholarship in your home country.
