Information for taxpayers in Germany
(also applies to international MBA graduates working in Germany after graduation): the tuition fees for the MBA Program are tax deductible as anticipated professional expenses in certain cases, so you can get back up to 42 percent of your tuition fees! How much it is in your case exactly depends on your individual situation. Under certain circumstances, the tuition fees of the first or second degree program as well as the financial burdens associated with the study (e.g. travel expenses, costs for literature and similar) can be used to reduce the income tax burden.
For detailed information please contact your legal tax advisor.
► CALENDAR OF PAYMENT
The payment for the next semester period is regularly due in mid of the current ongoing semester. If you wish to continue your studies after the end of the current semester, you must re-register within the valid re-registration deadlines by paying the tuition fee plus the semester contribution. The annual deadlines for the re-registrations are as follows:
- 15 December – 15 January for the respective summer term
- 15 June – 15 July for the respective winter term
► LIVING COSTS
Compared to some other European countries, Germany is not very expensive. The prices for food, housing, clothing, and cultural activities are slightly higher than the EU average. Living costs in Bonn are comparable to many mid-sized cities in Germany, but compared to many metropolitan areas, the overall costs are still well affordable. Of course, this depends on your individual costs for rent, your individual lifestyle, and on how frugal you are. You find the monthly rental prices for student dorms in Bonn online via "Student Union Bonn: Our dormitories". Please note that costs for a living are neither included in the tuition fees nor in the semester contribution fee!
All in all, you should calculate the average monthly living expenses to be about € 800. On average, students in Germany spend around 850 euros per month on living costs, however, the largest of the overall expenses is rent. Below, you find a rough calculation of the average monthly expenses for students living and studying in the Bonn-Rhein-Sieg area:
