Are you wondering why you have to pay tuition fees at CBS, but not at many other universities in Germany? CBS is a private, state-recognized university of applied sciences for management programmes. This means that it is not supported by state funds, but is privately financed. In Germany, unlike in the Anglo-Saxon and North American regions, there is no tradition of privately financed educational institutions. But even in this country, there are now many who would like to see a pluralistic educational landscape. This way, everyone can find the study program he or she would like to have!
There are various costs that arise during a course of study. First of all, the general cost of living for rent, food or clothing must be financed. In addition, there are registration fees and semester contributions that must be paid upon enrollment. As a private university of applied sciences, CBS also charges tuition fees, which vary depending on the programme. We have listed an overview of the costs for CBS students for you here.
Yes, you can. If you are entitled to BAföG, you can apply for BAföG through the „Kölner Studierendenwerk“. This also applies to the campuses in Mainz and Potsdam.
BAföG is the abbreviation for Bundesausbildungsförderungsgesetz. BAföG enables all students to study, regardless of their parents' income. It plays an elementary role as an additional source of finance, especially when students cannot earn enough money through student activities during their studies or are planning an expensive semester abroad.
Bachelor's, Master's and MBA students who have successfully completed the selection process at CBS and would like to start their first semester at CBS. The programme is open to both national and international EU/EWR students. It is irrelevant whether you would like to study full-time or part-time.
