Study Abroad 365 has put together a list of 25 universities in Germany that are tuition free for international students seeking to study in Germany. However, be informed that while studying in Germany, you’ll be required to finance your feeding and accommodation expenses. International students should budget roughly 500 Euros for their books, healthcare, food and registration. So in one year, an international student should expect to spend 7000 Euros on feeding, accommodation and books expenses.


To obtain a German visa, you’ll have to show concrete finance proof of your ability to finance your accommodation and feeding expenses during your time of study. This can be done in either of two ways:

(1) Submit a letter of finances to the German consulate or embassy. You can obtain this sponsor letter from your parents or a German relative who is willing to sponsor your studies in Germany.

(2) Open a German blocked account and deposit roughly 7000 euro. This can only happen once you’ve received your letter of admission. This blocked account is opened in the German embassy.

For more information, visit a German consulate in your home country or check out their websites for further details.

Hi Lydia, which study level is your son looking to study at? Only Masters degrees in medicine are available in English, and these aren't always free. Your son can study medicine for free at bachelor's level but there are no English-taught courses at this level so he'll need a strong knowledge of German for this. Your son might like to use the website's search tool to find a program.

Hi Sabrina,
Quick question. My University is having tuition fees of 24000 EUR. Should I produce a proof of having this amt or is it still okay to show 8700 EUR in my blocked account? I have to pay the fees by Aug 31 2017 and I am still working on Loan and Scholarship. But I wish to get my VISA done ASAP.

Hi Sachin, I'm not sure, but I think you will only need to pay your tuition from your enrolment date (you will probably pay the per semester amount, plus enrolment administration costs). The 8700 euros is just for living expenses. However, I'd suggest contacting your university's international office to double check this. :)
