Heilbronn University of Applied Sciences


Semester contribution

All students will have to pay a fee for the enrollment (administration fee of EUR 70.00, a social contribution for the student services of EUR 59.00 and a contribution to the"constituted students' union" of EUR 25.00).

The payment to the student services (Studierendenwerk Heidelberg) is used as a contribution to cover the costs for the student facilities like Mensa, Cafeteria, Student Halls, and a contribution towards the Semesterticket.

Also the Student's Union charges a student contribution, which allows it to fulfil its tasks. The Student's Union consists of all students enrolled and deals with higher education policy as well as with the students' subject-related, interdisciplinary, economic, social and cultural issues.
