  • Breakdown of typical expenses

    In Germany, the Studentenwerk maintains a range of services such as the cafeteria, the halls of residence, or counselling services. According to the Bavarian Higher Education Act, all students (including Erasmus+ and exchange students) are to pay a small service fee for the administration of these services. This fee is called Studentenwerksbeitrag – semester fee.

    Paying the semester fee is mandatory for enrolment at Aschaffenburg University of Applied Sciences. Currently, the semester fee amounts to 60 EUR.
