Costs of Living
The average monthly costs of living, including accommodation, food, books, and medical insurance amount to about EUR 700 - 800.

Health Insurance

German health insurance is obligatory for all students who are not citizens of the European Union. A special student rate is currently available for about EUR 60 a month to all students under 30 years of age. This insurance covers the costs of most medical treatments (including dental care) in Germany.

The MSc program and the University of Bonn do not offer any formal scholarships. For information on funding from German sources please contact the DAAD - German Academic Exchange Service. There is also a scholarship database available where you can get an overview of the various types of funding offered by the DAAD or of the programmes offered by other funding organisations for a study stay in Germany.

Job Opportunities
Students have a chance of getting a job as teaching / laboratory assistants / research helpers ("studentische Hilfskraft", e.g. in helping to run experiments in practical courses of the B.Sc. Biology programme).
