Saarbrücken - expenses


karfin

Hi everybody! My law studies are drawing to an end and I am already sure that I want to develop myself in area of EU law. That's why I am looking for EU LLM programm in Germany. Why in Germany? First because in spite of fluency in English I want to improve further my German of which I have also quite good command already. Secondly I count on DAAD scholarchip, which I can obviously get only when choosing German school. The first law school I can think of for EU law education is Europa Institut in Saarbrücken. But the problem is - the tuition fees are to high for me to afford (2000 per semester). The question is: are there any possibilities to be exempted from tuition fees in Germany (if I prove my parent's low wages and so on)? If I get a scholarship from DAAD which would cover my costs of living, would I be allowed to apply for another scholarship that would cover the tuition fees or is that absolutely forbidden to profit from one than more scholarships at the same time. Or maybe you could reccomend me another LLM programm in EU law, where the fees are not so high? I know the programm is pretty taugh at Europa Institut so it makes hard to work and study at the same time. On the other hand I cannot save money before applying, because living in Eastern European country it would simply take ages ;)

Wow, I wrote so much, hope someone replies;)

Hello Karfin,

Wow- your English really is good!

As far as I know, nothing should stop you from trying to obtain different scholarships.. The Europa-Institut are actually one of the best value-for-money LL-M providers in Germany, so I don't think you will find much cheaper, or at least certainly not with the same reputation...

I went there myself! If I recally correctly, they also offer scholarships particularly for students from Eastern Europe- you need to state your interest for this in the application (15th july deadline).. So try it!! It's definately worth doing, and Saarbrücken is one of the cheaper German cities to live... As for "tough"- it's certainly not an easy by-the-way course, but I must say I still managed to work at the "Stiefel-Bräu" (German beer house!) during my studies there to fund my expenses and managed well...

Good luck with whatever you decide to do!

Hi! Thank you FinallyPostgrad for words of encouragement! I already asked in DAAD - you are not allowed to apply for another scholarship once you're accepted for DAAD scholarship ;/ So I have to find a way to cover the tuition fees expences of Europa-Institut or I will have to find another school but of course I cannot find the school with better reputation than Saarbrucken... But still I am considering Leipzig, where LLM is free of charge or Würzburg where the costs are 500 Eur per semester. Actually I am going to Würzburg in next days since I am living in Mannheim at the moment (Erasmus) and I can go there for free with my Semesterticket ;D;D So maybe I will like the the place...

Can anyone tell sth about reputation of Leipzig or Würzburg Univerisities and teaching quality ??
