In Bavaria, there are no tuition fees any more. The new contribution for winter semester 2013/2014 is 111 Euros – including 52 Euros for the student union and 59 Euros as a solidarity contribution for the basic semester ticket. This sum will be forwarded to the public transport providers.

No problem: “We found a second home at TUM,” both of them agree.
