Our interdisciplinary selection of subjects allows you to individually configure and expand your programme content. Our practice-oriented approach makes it essential that we offer modern equipment on campus.

Working during your study time

Show more

Master programmes only hold classes during the semester in the time period from Wednesday afternoon to Friday or on Saturday evening. This makes studies more compatible with part-time employment.

Due to the fact that the curriculum is designed as a full-time programme, the work necessary to prepare before and after class should not be forgotten.

We put emphasis on internationality. That's why we were ranked as "one of the best 25 best international universities worldwide" (U-Multirank 2016). Our many international students come from all over the world to pursue a highly valued (state and FIBAA recognised) German degree that is entirely taught in English.

Germany, known as the country of innovators, is the perfect place to get your degree. Germany is the largest economic power and the center of high tech and automotive technologies in Europe. Additionally, Germany is a particularly safe and livable country with relatively low tuition fees and affordable living costs. Furthermore, Berlin is known as Europe's startup capital, magnet for creatives, and "place to be" for young people and entrepreneurs.

That's why we encourage international students to come here and study with us. You can apply with your national school degree now. We will then take a look at your application and guide you through the process.

Tuition fees and funding

Show more

As a private university, the quality standard of the University of Europe for Applied Sciences (UE) is not supported by the state, but rather by student fees. We invest in our students through the most advanced teaching methods, most up-to-date equipment, faculty with real-world experience, and a constantly expanding network. It is for this reason that the fees here differ from those at a public university. The results speak for themselves: Our alumni have proven themselves in the business world - as individuals, practically, and internationally.

All costs are integrated into the monthly student fees, including costs for the Leadership Assessment Center. There are no additional fees for things such as enrollment, testing, master's thesis, etc. as long as studies are completed in the regular time allotted.

We would be happy to provide you with further information on how to finance your studies and on support options. If you have any further questions, the extensive expert knowledge of our advisory services is at your disposal. More information on fees and financing can be found on our webpage.
