  1. 1.Accommodation

    • What else should I know? What else do I need to do?


    Looking for a place to study in  Germany does not come with any accommodation, i.e. you have to look for a room/accommodation at a very early stage.


  2. 2.Funding

    Quelle: Deutsches Studentenwerk, Servicestelle Interkulturelle Kompetenz


    Tuition fees (semester fees), insurance, accommodation, living expenses, fees -  studying is quite an expensive business.
