Long-term study fees

If students exceed the standard period of study for their current degree programme by more than four semesters, they are obliged to pay the so-called long-term study fee. The decisive factor here is the university semesters, not the subject semesters. This means that all semesters spent at a German university count, regardless of the subject.

The fee is 500 Euros per semester.

The fee is required in the following cases:

  • → when the standard duration of studies leading to an initial qualification for the practice of a profession or when the standard duration of consecutive programmes of study is exceeded by more than 4 semesters
  • → when the standard duration of studies is exceeded by more than 4 semesters in a second programme of study ('Zweitstudium').

All programmes of study undertaken at universities in the scope of the HRG (Hochschulrahmengesetz – a law defining what constitutes a university) are counted. Programmes of study at conservatories are only counted up to the fourth semester.

The following circumstances could lead to a longer period of study without the requirement of paying tuition fees, or to a reduction or remission of tuition fees. In these cases a corresponding form must be filled out for validation:

  1. → a one-time change of the programme of study by the end of the second semester
  2. → when a student pursuing a second programme of study ('Zweitstudium') has completed a first programme of study with results which are significantly above the average for that programme and class
  3. → when a student takes a semester off (suspension)
  4. → time taken off to care for or raise children
  5. → active participation in organisations of a university or conservatory
  6. → presentation of a case of hardship

Fees are not required during leave of absence or with regard to BAföG.

It is highly recommended in planning a course of studies to carefully think through the possibilities of the applicability of tuition fees.

Fees and charges for the continuing education programme

The continuing education programme is subject to a fee. The specific fees are calculated on the basis of the agreed study programme. The fee must be paid before the start of the programme. Please refer to the calculation basis.

Fees for Auditors

Starting on 1 October 2007, the fee for auditing students is 50 Euros per semester; this is an enrolment fee. If auditing students fail to pursue the studies they enrol for, there is no refund of the fee.

Additional fees

Information on other fees, e.g. late fees, doctoral fees, habilitation fees, fees for other public services, can be found in the General Fee Regulations (1st Amendment  | 2nd Amendment) of the University of Music FRANZ LISZT Weimar.
