Tuition fees are €363.36 per semester and €726.72 for third-country nationals. In addition, each semester, all students are required to pay the Austrian Student Union fee that includes insurance coverage in the amount of €19.70.
Fees thus amount to a total of €383.06 or €746.42 (both including the Austrian Student Union fee) per semester during the general admission period.
During the grace period (Summer Semester: February 6 to April 30/ Winter Semester: September 6 to November 30), tution fees in the amount of €363.36 will be raised by 10% to €399.70. The double tuition fee in the amount of €726.72 for third-country nationals and the Austrian Student Union fee will not increase during the grace period.
The fee during the grace period is then a total amount of €419.40 or €746.42 (both including the Austrian Student Union fee) per semester.
Austrian Student Union Fees and Tuition Fees.
Studying at the JKU is free, but not for nothing!
If you complete your degree in the timeframe allotted for degree completion (plus two tuition-free semesters), you will not be required to pay tuition. Students must, however, pay the Austrian Student Union fee each semester (last update Winter Semester 2018: € 19.70).
Due to an amendment in the 2002 Universities Act (BGBl. I No. 18/2013), beginning Summer Semester 2013 all Austrian universities require the payment of tuition fees. Tuition fees are €363.36 per semester.
Whether or not you are subject to paying tuition depends on your study status, nationality/citizenship, and the duration of studies.
