Confer also to the official website where the current fee is stated for applicants with a bachelor acquired outside Germany having no EU citizenship. The fee on that website is the binding one in case the above mentioned fee is different from that. Our fee will be increased every year by a moderate amount. The fee for applicants with a bachelor acquired in Germany or holding an EU citizenship is about 500 EUR less.

Students needing an additional semester with 30 credits due to their 180 credit bachelor experience have to study at least 4 semesters full time.

You should also be aware that due to the adaptation to a different culture and education system, you will most probably not be able to study full speed, especially not at the beginning. This will require more semesters until you have got your final degree. So far, no international student ever succeded in regular time. The majority of the successful ones needed at least 2 surplus semesters, some considerably more.

Foreign students may not be aware what are the total expenses they encounter studying and living in Germany. This is a sample table from 2019 for international students needing at least one additional semester. You may use this for your calculations. However, the numbers cannot be granted by FH Wedel, because they highly depend on your life style. Furthermore, accomodation prices increased in the last years and are very volatile since Corona. And you should consider the above remarks to the surplus semesters. This will increase the amount for our life expenses considerably.

Since FH Wedel is a non-profit university and tries to keep tuition fees as low as possible for every enrolled student, there is no scholarship given by FH Wedel, because this would increase the tuition fee of the other students.

For students with a German university degree, there are good opportunities to get a scholarship or employment by adjacent companies cooperating with FH Wedel, but they will almost certainly not give this to students with foreign university degrees. If you have studied some semesters succesfully at FH Wedel, you may have chances to benefit from these good employment opportunities, but not in the first semesters.

You are free to ask promoting institutions like DAAD or institutions of your home country for scholarships. FH Wedel is a fully acknowledged university equivalent to any public school, but cannot give you specific advice on that, since this strongly depends on your personal background and your provenience.

If you want to take a loan from a bank in your home country, you do this on your own financial risk. FH Wedel does not take actions preventing this, but will also not support this by any document. Due to the different study speed you may need (see the above remarks on that), it is very hard to predict which budget you will consume in total until you obtain your master's degree. We rather recommend that you provide a safe funding for at least the first 3 semesters, then study seriously with us and try to get a qualified student job in the higher semesters. However, the chances for such a job highly depend on your performance with us. The majority of our international incomings does not perform in a way which makes them eligible for such a job.
