Fields of activity:
As a private university, we are funded not by the state, but by tuition fees. For this reason, studying at the University of Europe for Applied Sciences (UE) costs more than at a public university. But it’s worth it: UE graduates meet essential requirements of careers in design, and this sets them apart from the graduates of many public universities.
All costs are included in the monthly tuition fee.
No additional costs will be incurred, such as a matriculation fee, exam fees, bachelor thesis fee or similar, as long as the course is completed within the standard study period.
The costs for the semester abroad are not included in these fees, as there are substantial differences depending on country and university.
