Costs and Financial Support


There are no tuition fees for students of University of Bonn. The German government fully subsidizes all university studies in the federal state of North Rhine-Westphalia to which Bonn belongs. The only fee our students have to pay is an administration fee of currently about 300€ per semester. The fee includes free public transportation in the Bonn/Cologne area and the whole of Northrhine-Westphalia.

In addition to the administration fee, living in Bonn costs between 600 and 800 Euro per month, depending on your personal standard. Further info on the cost of living in Germany is published on this DAAD-Website.

An excellent way of funding your studies and at the same time gaining practical experience and meeting future employers is to get a student job at one of the many information technology companies in the Bonn / Cologne area. An online job fair is available from University of Bonn, Hochschulrechenzentrum of our university, our Student Union, Studentenwerk Bonn and the Federal Employment Agency.
