Germany often has a reputation for being a somewhat cheap place to study. This is mainly because of the very low tuition fees compared to most other popular study destinations. However, this is not the full story and before you apply for MAP you should consider very carefully the financial costs of carrying out a Master's programme in Germany. In addition to general fixed expenses such as living costs or study materials, foreign students have to face costs for travel, fees for visa applications and translations and so on. There are various websites which give information for prospective students regarding the cost of studying in Germany. Furthermore, you should ask any friends or former colleagues who are studying here about what costs you can expect to face.
