National student fee
In 15 of the 16 German Länder studying is free of charge (Bavaria decided that fees are not in force as of winter semester 2013/14). Only in Lower Saxony students have to pay fees of maximum EUR 1 000 per academic year, which is defined by law. Only administrative charges are paid by all students.
When exceeding the regular study period, students may be liable to pay fees even in those Länder that do not charge fees.
Students can be exempt based on need- or merit-based criteria.
Different fees may be charged to students from outside the EU and EEA countries.
