Germany

With a landmass that stretches from the North Sea and the Baltic Sea in the north to the Alps in the south, Germany has the largest population of any EU country. Germany is one of the most influential European nations culturally, and one of the world’s main economic powers.

The roots of German history and culture date back to the Germanic tribes and after that to the Holy Roman Empire. Since the early middle ages Germany started to split into hundreds of small states. Known around the world for its precision engineering and high-tech products, it is equally admired by visitors for its old-world charm and “Gemütlichkeit” (coziness).

Undergraduate students in German public universities are not charged tuition fees since October 2014. Some Private Universities can require up to 20,000 Euros per semester in tuition fees for under-graduate programs and about 10,000-30,000 Euros for post-graduate programs.

German universities also offer free doctoral studies for the initial period of the course. After the first 6 semesters, the PhD students have to pay tuition fees. However, every student has to pay a semester contribution of approximately 150-200 Euros per semester.

International students are allowed to work a minimum of 90 days per year, or alternatively, 180 days part time (up to 4 hours per day), without having to obtain a work permit. If as a student, you earn more than 325 Euros per month, you will have to contribute to the German pension fund.

These contributors are transferable within the European Union. Students from non-EU countries can claim a refund after they finish their studies and leave Germany. Depending on your income and the duration of your paid employment, you might have to pay other social contributions as well.
