Study fees in Lower Saxony: Survey

As of the winter semester 2014/2015, the state of Lower Saxony no longer charges tuition fees. Lower Saxony thus makes a significant contribution to increasing equal opportunities in access to higher education. Financial barriers to entry will be removed in order to enable more young people to study.

The country will replace universities 100 per cent of the tuition fees that have been lost. These funds may only be used to further improve the quality of teaching and study conditions at universities in Lower Saxony. The country is dynamically adapting the funds to the number of students.

Who should I contact?

The responsibility lies with the respective university.

Which documents are required?

No documents are required.

What are the fees?

There are no charges.

What deadlines do I have to pay attention to?

No deadlines need to be observed.

What else should I know?

What is new is that students have a binding say on how the money is used at their university. A corresponding amendment is included in the Lower Saxony Higher Education Act (NHG).

At the same time as the abolition of tuition fees, Lower Saxony is improving conditions for long-term students. If students exceed the standard study period, they will in future only have to pay long-term tuition fees after six semesters, and not after 4 semesters as before.

It also takes into account the education of children, the care of close relatives and higher education policy activities. Fees will also be significantly reduced. The changes are intended to help increase the success rate of studies.
