Tuition fees

The tuition fees for the Master's program European and International Law are 3,400 Euro per Semester, 6,800 Euro for the academic year. 

The tuition fees for the Master's program "European and International Law" 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 partly subsidized (extra costs may arise!).

Accommodation, transport and board are however not included.

Social contribution, administrative charge and the General Student Committee fees

All students pay the social contribution, the administration fee and the General Student Committee fees before enrolling or re-registering. All information about the amount of the fee and its composition can be found on the Welcome Center's website:

Upon payment of this fee, students receive an ID card ("UdS-Card") which, among other things, allows free use of almost all public transportation in Saarland for a period of six months. Further information on the "Semesterticket" can be found HERE and at the AStA (Saarland University Student Union).

A studio apartment in student accommodation or a room in a shared student house costs approximately 350 €, 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 350 € 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 - affordable 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 Rundfunkbeitrag here), mobile phone costs (several phone providers offer cheap prepaid phone cards), books, leisure activities, medicine etc.

Further information and a sample calculation of the cost of living can be found here:

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 130 countries. It costs 15 EUR, is valid for a period of 12 months and can be purchased at student travel agents, student organisations and student unions.
