Tuition Fees and Scholarships

There are no tuition fees, but students have to pay an administrative fee for registration with Goethe University's student services (at present approximately 370 euros per semester, entitling students to services such as the unlimited use of public transportation in the Frankfurt area).

The University offers Goethe Goes Global scholarships for Master Degree Programmes at Goethe University. For more information, please see Please direct all questions regarding this scholarship to the scholarship providers. 

There are also several scholarship-awarding organizations. The most extensive scholarship program is that offered by DAAD (German Academic Exchange Service). Advanced students may apply for DAAD scholarships depending on their country of origin and subject. In some cases only graduates may apply. Other scholarship-awarding institutions have varying conditions, regarding for example, country of origin, subject, previous study achievements, or duration of support. A very quick and efficient way of finding out about the appropriate scholarship is through the scholarship database of DAAD. For more information, see
