Semester Contribution

The semester contribution is one part of your university fees. Although the amount varies depending on the university, it has to be paid in full every semester. At the Bauhaus-Universität Weimar, the semester contribution covers the fee for the student government (StuKo), the services provided by Studentenwerk Thüringen and the Semesterticket - a public trnsport ticket.

For contact data and more information about the semester contribution and the Semester Ticket, please visit the website of the Studierendenwerk Thüringen.


Long-term study fees

Each degree programme must be completed within a certain period. If a student studies longer than four semesters over the standard period of study, he or she is required to pay a 500-euro long-term study fee per semester in addition to the semester contribution.
