Tuition fees and funding
As a private university, the quality standard of the University of Applied Sciences Europe is not supported by the state, but rather by student fees. We invest in our students through the most advanced teaching methods, most up-to-date equipment, faculty with real-world experience, and a constantly expanding network. It is for this reason that the fees here differ from those at a public university. The results speak for themselves: Our alumni have proven themselves in the business world - as individuals, practically, and internationally.
All costs are integrated into the monthly student fees, including costs for the Leadership Assessment Center. There are no additional fees for things such as enrollment, testing, master's thesis, etc. as long as studies are completed in the regular time allotted.
We would be happy to provide you with further information on how to finance your studies and on support options. If you have any further questions, the extensive expert knowledge of our advisory services is at your disposal.
