School is cheap in Germany→
Students in Germany pay a fee to cover university administrative costs and to support student unions. This “semester fee” rarely exceeds $250, and in many cases it also covers the cost of books and public transportation.
Minnesotan Sarah Johnson, also a University of Bonn master’s student, has a total monthly expenditure of $600 in Germany — or $7,200 per year. That compares to $20-30,000 dollars in tuition fees alone she would have paid back home.
There’s a reason I’m taking German next year.
