BAföG: tuition fees & BAföG

In addition to traditional spending on lifestyle and food, tuition fees of various shapes and sizes are now being used at many universities in Germany. For example, for long-term students - or for all!

study-fold direction

Usually, long-term students are asked to pay after exceeding the standard period of study - usually by four to six semesters. Somewhat fairer is the study account model: Students are credited with a certain quota of freeCourses.

Anyone who overrides this account, which means moreCourses, has to pay regardless of the number of semesters. This system is beneficial to those who are able to finance their studies by working and can only study part-time. In addition there are various forms of administration fees and the graduation of the semester contributions depending on the student's duration, eg in Berlin.

In general, general study fees

In the meantime, however, general tuition fees are also being discussed everywhere from the first semester onwards, which was hindered until now by a ban by the Higher Education Framework Act. Most of the countries that want to introduce general tuition fees from the first year of study expect 500 Euro per semester. However, unlike the fees previously levied, the funds are to be made available to the departments directly.

It is to be hoped that the introduction of fees will take account of the situation of low-income families. Thus, loan models are discussed, according to which the fees are paid back only after the beginning of the work.

Prohibition of University fees canceled - The judgment of the Federal Constitutional Court and its reasoning

On 26.01.2005, the Federal Constitutional Court has declared the prohibition of study fees in Germany, which was fixed by the Higher Education Act, to be unconstitutional. The unions-governed countries of Baden-Württemberg, Bavaria, Hamburg, Saarland, Saxony and Saxony-Anhalt had filed a complaint against the Higher Education Act.

The federal states are now free to decide on the introduction of study fees. The 2002 federal ban imposed by the federal government violated the law of the Länder and was annulled by the court.

Rights of the Confederation

According to this ruling, the federal government cannot base its general ban on fees on the framework legislative competence for higher education, which it is fundamentally entitled to, since uniform nationwide regulations are not required either to “create an economic unity”.

However, the Confederation is to be able to intervene if the inhabitants of the federal states, where a university degree program costs fees, are significantly disadvantaged or if a large proportion of the students migrate to other federal states. In principle, however, it was not a matter of whether study fees are politically reasonable, so the Karlsruhe judges do not want their judgment to be understood as a freeze letter for study fees.
