The Cost of Studying Abroad in Germany

By Stephen Fuchs on Email @StephenWFuchs

Are you looking into spending a few semesters studying in Germany? If so, you may have asked yourself how much it would coast to live in Germany while you complete your studies. Germany Is relatively cheap compared to other European countries, but there can be a big price difference in the cost of living depending on where you choose to live. The German Academic Exchange Service (DAAD) posted a very good roundup of what you can expect to pay based on the feedback from students on Facebook who are living in Germany.

The cost ranges from €350 to €1000, but it looks like the average student can get by with €600. This takes into account the cost of rent, food (a mix of cooking for yourself and going out), transportation, entertainment, and insurance. A lot of the cost really depends on the lifestyle you want to live, but overall things don’t appear to be too pricey. For a more detailed breakdown, we recommend checking out the full DAAD post in the source link. Even if you aren’t planning to study abroad, it is still interesting to take a look at the info they gathered.
