Financing Academic Studies

Two financial components have to be considered when planning your studies in Germany:

  • Student service fee and
  • Cost of living

Each month you should count on the following fixed costs:
Rent: at least € 200,- to € 300,-

Student service fee

In Bavaria there are no tuition fees.

Depending on your subject should reckon on certain expenditures for materials for your studies like books etc. (very different from subject to subject).

Each semester at the University, you additionally must pay student service fee (Semesterbeitrag) in the amount of approx. € 145,- (as of: 01/18). This student service fee includes a ticket for all bus lines in and around Regensburg (as far as Wackersdorf and Neumarkt in the North). Regional trains (SE, RB, RE) may also be used  for free within certain zones with your student ID.

Information on the RVV Semesterticket

For the study preparatory German course you have to pay fees of about 530 € per semester (as of: 01/18).


The University of Regensburg assumes that international students can bear all costs themselves. A confirmation of the financial standing  is a requirement (for non-EU citizens) to be issued a residence permit for studying.
