If you do not take a leave of absence for the duration of your semester abroad, you will continue to pay the regular semester fees at UPB. Make sure you remember to pay the semester fees within the re-enrolment period. If you take a leave of absence, you might have to pay a reduced amount. Further information is available at the UPB Service Center.
We want you to be aware that a stay abroad is associated with increased costs. Depending on which country you go to, the cost of living can differ greatly from the German standard.
Even if you are exempt from pure tuition fees at our partner universities, you may, for example, be required to show certain financial resources in advance as a guarantee (possibly through a sponsor). In non-European countries, this can be several thousand euros per semester.
Likewise, other fees (such as application fees, administration fees, visa costs or health costs (e.g. mandatory vaccinations)) are not included in the tuition waiver and must be paid by you. Accommodation and living costs are also to be paid by the students themselves.
