Living Expenses

Please calculate about EUR 861 per month (including health insurance) to fulfill the requirements for obtaining a visa and residence permit as a student. International applicants must demonstrate that they have enough resources to cover their living expenses and costs related to their studies through:

  • Blocked bank account. A bank account with a minimum of EUR 10.332. This amount corresponds to one academic year (2 semesters), and the account can be opened from the home country.
  • Sponsorship (Bürgschaft). A person residing in Germany can be a sponsor as patron or guarantor, assuming complete financial responsibility and an irrevocable bank guarantee (see Ausländergesetz § 84 - Foreigners Act 84).  
  • Scholarships or grants. The letter of award of a scholarship and official grant documents prove the required financial support.

We strongly suggest seeing the complete requirements of the German embassy in your home country.


SEPT and DAAD have a keen interest in attracting a student body composed of talented individuals from all around the globe. Financial aid can be offered as a DAAD scholarship for the best applicants.

Please check out the DAAD Scholarship Database for an overview of where to get financial aid.
