Financial Support

The Humboldt University of Berlin does not charge tuition fees, only a semester fee of about 300€ which includes a six-month ticket for the Berlin-wide public transportation system (worth about 200€). Master students can obtain financial support by applying to university-wide advertised student assistantships. If you are interested in such a student assistantship, you should indicate so on your application cover letter.
