What will a year's study cost you?

  • Tuition fees: These are calculated on the basis of the total number of credits you take and whether you are a resident of the European Economic Area (EEA). Detailed tution fees can be calculated here
  • Books and study material: approximately 500 euro per year.
  • Housing: The average price for a student room with shared bathroom and kitchen facilities is 350 euro per month. In most cases, regular costs like internet, water, gas, electricity and heating are not included in this price. The average price for a studio is 450 euro per month.  Once again, costs like internet, water, gas, electricity and heating are not included in this amount. 
  • Food: a meal in one of the student restaurants on campus costs around 5 euro.
