Master in Digital Media Application
University of Bremen
The German tradition of offering education virtually free of charge is of great benefit to students. Honoring this tradition, this master's program comes at nearly no cost. Thus, being accepted into our program is as good as winning a scholarship. We also do not impose an application fee.
Enrolled students are charged an administration fee of roughly 240 Euro per semester, most of which is accounted for by the 'Semesterticket' that allows students to use public transportation in and around Bremen free of charge, including travels to the cities of Hamburg and Hanover. If you never use your 'Semesterticket', you can get a full refund for it.
The German federal state of Bremen has issued a law according to which students have to pay tuition fees of five hundred Euros per semester in addition to the amount mentioned above if they study for more than 14 semesters. All studied semesters at universities within the states of the European Union, will be taken from your study account.
Costs of living
Decent meals at moderate prices are offered for students at both universities. No car is needed: In Bremen even the Lord Mayor rides his bike to work. There is a section on the DAAD-Website describing the costs of living.
