The academic calendar at LMU is divided into two semesters. For convenience, tuition fees are calculated per year. Education at LMU is free for everyone. However, students must pay a semester fee — 241 USD per year. On the official website of the university, you will find all the relevant information about tuition fees and scholarships.
It is necessary to pay attention to other costs: accommodation, transportation, study materials, food, and personal expenses.
Bachelor degree at LMU
Schooling in Germany lasts longer than in other countries. Therefore, it is impossible to enter a university immediately after the 11th grade — first, you need to eliminate the academic difference. There are special educational institutions for foreign students — Studienkollegs.
The city campus of LMU provides students with countless opportunities for work and recreation — from sitting in a coffee shop with a laptop to internships at large companies. Munich has a well developed entertainment infrastructure, but the rhythm of the big city can be distracting for some students. The educational institution has its own library. Here, students do their homework or just have a good time reading an interesting book. LMU accepts students for international exchange programs. This is a great opportunity to gain experience in intercultural communication for both international and local students.
What to do after graduation
It is possible to stay in Germany for an additional 18 months after graduation. To do this, you need to apply for a graduate visa, which allows you to work without providing an offer from an employer. We talk about other options for immigration in our article.
