Up-to-date information on the tuition fees payable can be found on the web pages of the Admissions Office using the link on the right of this page. Fees comprise the student union fee, an administrative charge, and the registration fee (which includes a public transport pass for the semester). You will receive a student ID card that lets you use the public transport network in the Verbundtarif Region Braunschweig area as well as the Deutsche Bahn (DB-Regio) railway network throughout Lower Saxony. In addition, tuition fees of 500 euros are payable per semester. Much of this is spent to benefit the students, directly or indirectly. It is used to help fund field trips, studio equipment and facilities, tutorials, and longer opening hours for the library and model workshops. Living costs and rented accommodation in Braunschweig are moderate compared to the rest of Germany. A room in the student halls costs about the same as a room in a shared house, i.e. around 200 euros per month; a flat will cost you about 300 euros. There are many ways of spending time abroad as part of your degree, such as an exchange year in Sweden, a Master's degree (MA) in the United States, an assignment in Japan, or a placement in New Zealand. Various institutions and foundations provide funding for such projects. The International Office acts as an interface for all international activities at TU Braunschweig, providing information and advice to outgoing students from the university. pic

Since the introduction of CAD (Computer Aided Design), the costs associated with a degree in Architecture have changed. Students now have expenses for printing and plotting or for model-making materials. An efficient printer that is suitable for graphics and 3D design costs about 1,000 euros. The purchase of a notebook is also recommended. TU Braunschweig takes the pressure off students' personal budget by offering free use of the individual institutes' CAD pools, and very reasonably priced access to the department's computer pools for plotting drafts. The model and media workshops also provide equipment and know-how, so students do not need to buy specialised tools themselves. All students are also offered access to otherwise unaffordable equipment such as rapid prototyping machines or laser cutters. Nevertheless, you will have to spend around 100-200 euros per semester on materials. This includes the cost of printing, plotting, paper, sketchpaper and model-making materials. Studio workplaces are available almost free of charge, costing about 10-20 euros per semester. They offer sufficient workspace, broadband internet access, and usually a small separate model workshop. The institutes frequently offer field trips in Germany and abroad to accompany or prepare for design projects or seminars. Short field trips within Germany cost about 100 euros. Two-week field trips to countries that are further away cost between 500 and 1,500 euros; a third of this sum is sponsored. In addition, part of the tuition fees for the degree programme is used to fund field trips, making them relatively inexpensive. Finance - Scholarships, Working in Germany
