The majority of the students attend public universities. Tuition fees at public universities vary from state to state but are never higher than 500 € per semester (=1/2 year). For most bachelor's and many master's degree programmes tuitions fees do not exist or are only up to 500€. However, there are certain exceptions like non-consecutive master's degree programmes where the fees can be up to 1,000 € per semester. Private universities tend to charge relatively high tuition fees as well. These fees can go up to 6,000 € per semester.
