Fees & Scholarships
GeT MA is a fee based program. Tuition fees for the two-year academic program amount to 10.000 € and need to be paid in 2 tranches at METU during the first year of studies. In the 3. and 4. semester students need to pay a semester contribution of around 315,00 € at Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin. Students have to cover costs of living.
Scholarship and Funding Opportunities
GeT MA provides a certain number of DAAD-scholarships for non-German students and a limited number of tuition fee reductions to qualified students from all nationalities.
Furthermore there is a variety of foundations that provide financial support to students, the most famous ones being those affiliated with German political parties. Moreover, there are several funding options offered by corporations, union and even by individuals.
An internet search is highly recommended (i.e. Association of German Foundations). Each foundation chooses the candidates according to its own criteria for eligibility. It might even be the case that you cannot apply on your own but have to be recommended by a third person.
Most foundations offer a special academic support program alongside the student's regular studies. Additional counseling is provided by the Studienkompass (website in German).
GeT MA applicants are highly encouraged to apply for external funding.
