Financial Support

It is important for us to provide high standards of quality and technical equipment as well as a location which is well served by public transport for all students. Apart from donations, which cover most of our expenses, students pay tuition fees.

There will be various financing models for studying at the planned Private University for Church and Society. As soon as our price calculations will be completed, we will publish detailed  information regarding our fees.

Finances should not be an obstacle, that's why we are listing various financing options below:

Tax deductions may be available if the courses taken are considered as further education or re-training according to the income tax regulations. In this case tuition fees and other related costs, such as literature, travelling costs may be tax deductible. See
