Tuition fee PhD

If you enrol as a PhD student, you will only pay tuition fees for the first enrolment in the PhD and for the defence of your thesis.  Please note, if both events take place in the same academic year, both fees are due.

The following rates apply to the enrollment as a PhD student (diploma contract):

  • First enrolment in a PhD: 474.4 euro
  • Re-enrollment: 0,0 euro
  • Defence of the thesis: 474.4 euro

In your final year, your tuition fees should be paid once the date of your thesis defence has been confirmed and the registrar's office has been notified of this date using the form "Information regarding the defence of a PhD thesis".

Only pay the tuition fees when you receive notification from the registrar's office that they are due.

Tuiton fee postgraduate and exchange

Postgraduate students should contact the organiser of the postgraduate programme to learn more about the amount and the method of payment.  

Exchange students (e.g. Erasmus) do not have to pay tuition fees for their registration.

How do I calculate the tuition fee in the case of multiple enrolments?

The credits needed for all your programmes will be added up to calculate your tuition fees if you are taking an initial academic bachelor or initial master, a bridging or preparatory programme or the teacher training programme.  The fixed amount only has to be paid once.

Exceptions to this rule include the master programmes (and associated bridging or preparatory programmes) with increased tuition fees, the advanced master programmes, PhD and postgraduate programmes: if you're taking one or more of these enrolments, each enrolment will be calculated individually according to the rate of the programme. If credits apply, these credits will not be combined with credits used for programmes in other categories.  Each fixed amount of the combined programmes will have to be paid in this case.
