  • 5% discount if tuition fees are paid in full before the degree programme starts
  • 3% discount if tuition fees are paid in annual instalments before the 1st, 3rd and 5th semester starts

Discounts only apply to the tuition fees for a degree programme’s standard period of study.

Methods of payment

Information on the methods of payment

Enrolment is binding for the entire degree programme, which is legally based on the enrolment contract (“Application for Matriculation”) between the student and the International University SDI München (see section 5 the Application for Matriculation). This entails the obligation to regularly pay the tuition fees of the entire degree programme. Tuition fees are monthly fees which students can pay either monthly (from October to September of the academic year), biannually at the beginning of each semester (winter semester: 1 October; summer semester: 1 April), annually, or as a one-time payment at the beginning of the winter semester (1 October). The desired method of payment (monthly , biannually, annually, or one-time payment) is to be indicated on the Application for Matriculation. In the case of biannual or annual payment, the fees are to be paid on time without special request. Monthly payment is only possible by SEPA Direct Debit mandate. Payments are debited on the 10th of each month.

By 10 October and 10 April, the Student Union fee and the solidarity fee for the semester ticket (€75.00 + €72.00 = €147.00) will be debited from all enrolled students. It is debited with the monthly fee for the current semester.

Students who prefer a bank transfer of the tuition fees over Direct Debit mandate must transfer €147.00 to the International University by 1 October and 1 April.

Please note that new students must pay the one-time admission fee upon enrolment, but no later than 15 September. The Student Union fee and the solidarity fee for the semester ticket are due with the first payment of the tuition fees.
