Financial Aid

Currently there is no tuition fee to be paid by students (as long as the program is not assessed as a so called “Zweitstudium” for you, which is generally not the case if you apply with a pre-diploma or a bachelor degree). However, we ask each student for a one-time contribution of 200€ to cover expenses related to the studies within the time at the CDTM (Kickoff-Weekend, course material, printing, etc.). If you wish to apply for individual financial aid please refer to the institutions below.

CDTM Scholarships

CDTM is supporting students to go abroad for one term. For these stays, CDTM has set up a scholarship program to support its students by covering tuition and higher living expenses.
