Studying in Saarbrücken

Welcome to uds!

At Saarland University, you will have to pay registration fees. These fees are the same for all students and include a bus ticket.

AMASE students can have these fees refunded, because these are included in the participation fees.

Furthermore, all AMASE students are excluded of an extra service fee, called “Verwaltungskostenbeitrag”.

IMPORTANT: If you have selected UdS as Entrance or Second University, you have to be enrolled for the whole study period, no matter if you are here or not.

However, you will only have to transfer the semester fees for those semesters actually spent here.

Proof of financial support (“Sperrkonto”) for Non-EU students

For self-financing students, we recommend opening a blocked account which you may easily use as proof of financial support. This is needed to obtain the visa for Germany. There is no need to send the bank account details in advance. For further information, please check:

Flat-Share: “Wohngemeinschaft” (WG)

People live together in one flat in order to reduce costs. Finding a suitable flat share will depend a lot on you, as the residents often have little “interviews” to find out if the person will fit in. You will need to contact them personally. The prices for private accommodation in Saarbrücken may range between 300€ -450€ per month, depending on how close you live to the city centre and on the number of roommates you have.
