Semester Ticket for Public Transportation
The Semester Ticket is for free travel on most public transportation within the German state of North-Rhine Westphalia and is included in the Freshman fees.
During the Freshman year
Tuition in the bachelor’s program is fully subsidized by the German government for excellent international and domestic students; therefore students do not have to pay any tuition fees for bachelor’s or master’s programs. After completion of the Freshman year, students enrolled in a bachelor’s program must pay only the semester fee, which is currently approximately €260 per semester. For students in the German state of North Rhine/Westphalia, this mandatory semester fee includes public transportation within and other amenities. At the time of enrollment in the bachelor’s program, most students will need a blocked account, which currently requires about €9000 per year to cover their living expenses. Students can access the money from their blocked account in monthly increments.
