The tuition fees for the Master's program "European and International Law" amount to 5,000 € per academic year (2,500 € per semester). The fees cover tuition, the use of the institution library and the computer work space in the library. Moreover, paper copies as well as some extracurricular activities like day trips are covered by the fee, longer trips are party subsidized. Accommodation, transport and board are however not included.  In addition, an administrative fee is payable to Saarland University each semester. Payment of this fee entitles students to an ID card ("Semesterticket"), which authorizes free use of almost all public transportation within the Saarland for a period of six months.


A studio apartment in student accommodation or a room in a shared student house costs approximately 300 €, inclusive of additional charges and electricity. A telephone and internet connection is also frequently included, however not always! Students should expect to spend approximately another 150 € on board, that is, food (there are many discount supermarket chains in Germany, such as Aldi, Lidl, Netto and Penny, where food can be bought at bargain prices; on the other hand, those not interested in cooking will not go hungry either - cheap warm meals can be bought at the Mensa on the University campus), TV (please be aware that you must pay a TV and radio licence fee – more information on, mobile phone costs (several phone providers offer cheap prepaid phone cards), books, leisure activities, medicine etc.


A useful tip: Students often benefit from discounts, for example at the cinema and theatre and also, perhaps less expectedly, for subscriptions to magazines, train tickets or flights. It is always worth asking! Within Germany, presentation of your student ID Card will suffice, however if you are planning to go abroad you may wish to acquire an "International Student Identity Card" (ISIC). This identity card is recognized world-wide and opens the door to discounts in over 100 countries. It costs 12 EUR, is valid for a period of 12 months and can be purchased at student travel agents, student representations and student unions. More information on
