Improvements in studying and teaching
Begun in the summer semester 2007, all students pay tuition fees in the amount of 500 Euro per semester. The University has approximately 14 million Euro a year for the improvement of studies and teaching. Half of these fees are used for central projects. The other half goes directly to the Faculties. Detailed information is found in the graphic „Decentralized Tuition Fees: Intake and Use“.

Students also decide
Students have an equal say in what the additional intake should be used for. The boards deciding over the use of the funds are therefore composed of student representatives. The decision-making process from suggestion to the possible implementation of a measure is shown in the graphic "Decentralized Tuition Fees: Decision-Making Process“
Ideas and suggestions for new measures
Suggestions on use of the tuition fees may be submitted by every Faculty member (students, teachers, administrative staff). Please use the online form
to do so. Students may also give their suggestions to the departmental student organisation.
