Fees and Funding
The cost of the four-week Summer Language Courses is relatively uniform (about 1,000 euros including accomodation). Fees for the Summer Academies and Partner Programs, on the other hand, vary considerably.
All MISU courses and activities are nonprofit, the fees for participants calculated to cover only the actual costs. The course fees include tuition, course materials, some services (like tutors) and the extracurricular program.
Grants and Fee Waivers for Summer Academies
Since the duration of the Summer Academies differs significantly (from 2 to 10 weeks), the fees and funding possibilities differ as well:
- Several Summer Academies are grant-funded, making them more or less free of charge.
- Students from LMU partner universities who are interested in a fee-funded Summer Academy can apply for a partial fee waiver. If your home university is listed in our database, please send your Fee Waiver Application Form (as online formular). The fee waiver application deadline is on February 28th.
- Please note that the Fee Waiver Application is not equivalent to the program application. To be eligible for the Fee Waiver you need to first apply to the summer academy.
Funding for German Language Courses
If you are in need of financial assistance, the German Academic Exchange Service (DAAD) offers funding for summer German language courses.
Students and young academics from Albania, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Croatia, Kosovo, Macedonia (FYROM), Montenegro, Serbia, Slovenia and Ukraine with basic German knowledge (at least A2-level) are eligible to apply for the summer school grants for German language in Bavaria.
Students and young researchers from the Czech Republic can apply for a scholarship from the Bavarian-Czech Academic Agency.
