Yes. 32 students at most are admitted per year.
The obligation to pay the fees arises when the student is admitted to the Master’s Programm. Confirmation of payment of the tuition fees as well as the semester fees and contributions or confirmation that payment is to be made by a sponsor (in particular by a national or supranational body or equivalent) must be provided at the latest upon enrolment for the first semester and re-enrollment for the second semester.
If students do not take up their studies or if they drop out of the programme within four weeks after commencing their studies, they must pay half of the fee for the first semester. Any payments exceeding this sum will be refunded. If the student drops out of the programme at a later point, the entire fee for the whole duration of the programme must be paid; payments in advance will be taken into account.
