Prepare Your Budget for Your Study Abroad
Tuition fees vary slightly depending on your chosen program and are 7-9.000 EUR yearly. There is a one-time enrollment fee of 1.000 EUR that you should calculate for your overall budget.
SHR puts maximal effort into helping their students not only choose the right program for their personal and professional lives but also financially to support their coming and studying in Germany. For this purpose, there are several financial support possibilities that you might fit into:
- Deutschlandstipendium – monthly support for high-achieving and committed students;
- Performance Scholarship – for talented and dedicated students;
- Entrepreneurship Scholarship – for entrepreneurs with a great business idea;
- Women for Leadership Scholarship – for ladies with leadership aspirations;
- Talent Scholarship – for exceptional talents in music, art, design, or photography;
- Future of Tech and Women in Tech – for those passionate about programming, especially encouraging women.
For more details about each scholarship, call EAC and find out how and when it is best to apply.
When planning to study abroad, consider additional costs aside from tuition fees. Germany is a European country with moderate living costs. You will need about 600 EUR for accommodation and household. However, this and other expenses related to your daily life mainly depend on your lifestyle.
While studying in Germany, you will need health insurance, too. Luckily, Macedonia has signed an agreement with the German government for cross-border coverage. So, you can either use this one or a European Health Insurance Card.
Undeniable Facts in Favor of Study and Live in Germany
Germany is the European leader in the economy, with 84 million inhabitants and a prestigious place to study. With a steady unemployment rate below 6%, established headquarters of automotive, chemicals, and electronics sectors, and a shortage of well-educated people (engineers, computer scientists, healthcare professionals, scientists, etc.), Germany is a great place to start your career.
Putting these facts together with the fact that 12 million citizens come from all over the world makes Germany a great place to be an international student.
Berlin, the capital, is a German and European metropolis. Since the 13th century, Berlin has had a rich history with several significant transformations. However, today, Berlin, with 3,7 million inhabitants, is one of the most popular cities and connects people, cultures, and businesses.
Moreover, Berlin has reputable universities, and its educational landscape attracts non-German students. As a result, 1/5 of all students are international. As a student in Berlin, you can explore its history by visiting the Brandenburg Gate, Reichstag building, Berlin Philharmonic, or Frederichstrase. Do we need to mention events and its famous nightlife?
Heidelberg is different than Berlin, with only 160,000 residents. This smaller city is located in the middle of the Rhine-Neckar metropolitan region and captivates with its romanticism and 21st-century reality. People living there feel like they are at home. It attracts creative people, entrepreneurs, scientists, and researchers.
At the same time, this oldest university town in Germany attracts students. Over 38,000 students come to Heidelberg for their undergraduate and graduate studies. Even though it is unknown, this student city is proud of its 56 Nobel prize winners. This fact is self-explanatory about the universities’ qualifications and their quality of education.
Last but not least, Germany is among the 15 most peaceful countries in the world. Year after year, Germany is improving its global peace index, which reached 15 in 2023. Any more doubts about studying and living in Germany?
If the facts presented above are insufficient to convince you, you can always contact EAC and ask for additional free advice. Experienced advisors will tell you all you need to know about studying in Germany, the program you want to study, and the most successful way to apply.
This center has helped hundreds of students in the past 20 years. They will help you too.
