Costs for a study period abroad are considerably higher in most cases compared to studies in Germany (tuition fees, travel expenses, cost of living, health insurance etc. ) Start planning early for these additional costs, do not wait until you have been accepted by your host university!
For information on tuition fees in foreign countries see the DAAD website, country-specific information (http://www.daad.de/Länderinformationen) or http://www.college-contact.com/www.college-contact.com; information on tuition fees in Australia is also available at the Institut Ranke-Heinemann, see Studiengebühren in Australien.
For a study period at a partner university of University Witten/Herdecke you are exempt from tuition fees as a rule. You will receive a so-called tuition waiver. Please confirm with the International Coordinator at your faculty.
