Tuition fees for international students will be waived if they take a leave of absence – Do I still receive vouchers?

If you do not pay tuition fees, you will not receive further vouchers. However, you can make use of the vouchers you have not used so far and which do not lose their validity. Please send an email to to check how many vouchers you currently have available. Each voucher allows you to take part in a course with approximately two hours per week during the semester (e.g. 90min course per week during the lecture period). Complex courses may require the use of several vouchers. A cash payout is not possible!

With the vouchers you can attend language courses, offers for intercultural and academic integration and application training for career entry. More information about the courses that are offered
