Participation costs

The participation costs for the AMASE Master Programme vary depending on your nationality and if your home country is part of the EU or not.

EU studentsNon-EU students
1500€ (per semester)4500€ (per semester)*

The participation costs depend on your nationality. In case you have both an European and a Non-EU passport, you will only have to pay 1500 € per semester.

*The participation costs for Non-EU students who started in the winter semester 2014/15 and in the winter semester 2016/17 will NOT change and therefore still amount to 4.000€ per semester. The participation costs rise to 4.500€ for Non-EU students starting their studies in the winter semester 2017/18.

Costs include

The following costs are included in the participation costs and can be reimbursed for all students (few exceptions):

  • Accident and health insurance (171€ per semester)
  • Registration fees (Note: registration fees are only paid for the university the student is currently studying at!)
  • Costs for the Integration Week and Professional Summer School, plus travel allowance (only for self-financers: 30€ to UL, 100€ to UPC, 200€ to LTU)
  • Self- financing students coming to the Saarland University in the 3rd Semester: reimbursement for one intensive language course
  • All students at Saarland University are exempt of an extra administration fee, called Verwaltungskostenbeitrag

To get a reimbursement, please download the reimbursement document fill in your data, sign and send it (with proof of payment if possible) to office@eusmat.net. We will then hand it in to the financial department and they will make the transfer.

Erasmus+ scholarships

This is a regular Erasmus+ funding, which all students in Europe are eligible for by studying in another European country.

Although Erasmus+ is not equal to a full-scholarship, it is a mobility allowance which will help you cover your costs abroad. The amount depends on each country and varies between 250 – 350€ a month.

You may receive funding for your second year in AMASE, so the time you study at your Second University. In order to be eligible for said funding, you will have to apply for Erasmus+ at your Entrance University during the first year. Please contact the respective international office for more detailed information.

In case you start at UdS, please check the Erasmus+ information here.

!!For the moment, Erasmus+ is not available if UPC or LTU is your Entrance university.!!

DFH funding

If you study in any combination of UL/UdS, you will be eligible for funding via the “Deutsch-Französische Hochschule” (DFH). Funding amounts to 300€ per month for a maximum duration of 10 months, during your stay at the second university.

An example: You study at UdS for your first year. You cannot get DFH funding during this first year. Then, you move to UL for the second year. Now you receive DFH funding over 300€ per month (max. 10 months). The same works vice versa.

Bank account

All participation fees for AMASE have to be transferred to UdS, because Saarland University is the coordinating institution.

The fees are to be paid by the beginning of each semester. Please note that you will not get your degree unless all costs have been paid.
Please transfer the participation costs to the following account:

Account holder:Universitaet des Saarlandes
City:Saarbruecken
Country:Germany
IBAN:DE19 5919 0000 0000 3300 00
BIC:SABADE5S
Subject:Name of the Student, AMASE – W515110501

For an overview of what your fees are spent on, see here: Structure of the participation costs.

Extra semester (5th semester)

Once you have obtained all required ECTS points after 4 semesters and ONLY the Master’s Thesis (and the B2 proof of German, if Saarland University is one of your institutions, are missing), you may study one additional semester without paying participation cost. In case you still have to obtain credit points, you will have to pay the regular participation costs.

Please note, in case you do not need to pay the participation costs for your extra semester, you will not be able to get a reimbursement of both semester fees and the health insurance.

Deposit

Self-financing students have to pay a deposit of 200 € until 15 June of the respective year for the Integration Week.
This deposit will be used as a commission for the Integration Week and is considered a part of the participation fees.
Since rooms have to be reserved and paid by the end of June, this deposit is raised as a guarantee that you will join both the Programme and the Integration Week. 
So if you have transferred the deposit and pay the rest of the fees, please subtract these 200 €.

Example: You come from outside the EU, the fees are 4500 € per semester for you.
1. You make one transfer of 200 € until 15 June. Then you make a second payment of 4300 € until the end of August.
2. Or you pay the whole fees of 4500 € in one transfer until 15 June.

Only if the transfer is made on time (before 15 June), we will make a reservation for you in the hostel.

Should you not be able to join the programme on short notice, but have already paid the deposit, we cannot reimburse these 200 €.
