GER­MANY

KL100 - - Features -

Ger­many, all state-run uni­ver­si­ties in the Fed­eral Re­pub­lic—leg­endary i nsti­tu­tions, li ke the Univer­sität Hei­del­berg, the Univer­sität München, or the Hum­boldt-Univer­sität zu Ber­lin – have lately taken the com­mon res­o­lu­tion to scrap Pub­lic Univer­sity tu­itions. They weren’t ex­actly break­ing the bank be­fore, with se­mes­ter fees of about EUR 500, or $630, which is of­ten less than an Amer­i­can stu­dent spends on books -but even that amount was con­sid­ered “un­just” to Ger­mans; and so, right now, it costs ab­so­lutely NOTH­ING. You might be think­ing, i sn’t it j ust won­der­ful to be Ger­man - well, here’s the kicker: Ger­many didn’t j ust abol­ish tuition for Ger­mans. The tuition ban goes for in­ter­na­tional stu­dents, too.
