Tuition Fees and Financial Aid

  • For the two-year full-time study option, tuition fees amount to 5950 € per year plus administrative charges of 117.40 € per year.


The master program East European Studies is designed as a two-year full-time study program. In the past, most of our students have successfully managed to combine their studies with the obligations of a full-time job. However, for some students in highly challenging professional contexts, it might be more suitable to study East European Studies part-time. If you consider this option, please be aware that you will have to allocate a greater period of time for your studies and tuition fees will be higher.


Tuition fees can be paid in installments. Please check in with the East European Studies team – we are happy to help develop your individual installment plan.


Tuition fees include:

    • Provision of teaching and learning materials for all modules
    • Access to our online-learning platform
    • Personalized tutoring and supervision throughout your studies
    • On-site teaching during in-house classes and additional program

Tuition fees do not include:

      • Additional costs arising from in-house classes, e.g. travel and accommodation expenses
      • Bank fees, if applicable
