Cost of living
The average cost of living of around €550/mth for accommodation, food and medical insurance in the Furtwangen and Schwenningen region is much lower than in large university cities. However for visa purposes students have to submit proof of a monthly income of €720 for the duration of their stay.
The following will give you some idea of living costs:
|Student halls of residence||€250-300/mth|
|Lunch in university dining hall||€2.80|
|Glass of beer in a pub||€3|
The financing of your degree programme has to be planned very carefully in advance as opportunities for foreign students to supplement income through a scholarship or working while studying in Germany are extremely limited.
