Coming to Germany as an international student is a big financial commitment and you need to consider carefully your financial expenses and living costs. Find out more about fees and funding possibilities when applying for the HUWISU program.
The participation fee consists of a one-off non-refundable program fee and the course fee. The program fee amounting to 160,- Euros is levied at a flat-rate and covers the administrative tasks associated with the enrollment process and course management. The regular program fee for online courses amounts to 60,- Euros. Course fees vary from course to course (the applicable course fees are available on each course's website). The tuition fee listed at the time of registration is the official price for the program. Additional charges may apply in case of further bookings.

The deadlines for your application may differ from the deadlines of HUWISU. Therefore we suggest to start the application at least 6 up to 8 months before the beginning of our courses because the scholarship application can be quite extensive. Please also note that HUWISU will not be able to support your scholarship application.
Please note that all fees must be paid in one installment. Payment must be made no later than three weeks after registration. Registration becomes valid only after verification of payment. The transfer charge must be paid by the applicant. If you have questions concerning your payment, you are welcome to contact the HUWISU Team.
With confirmation of payment, your registration for the HUWISU program is binding.
