Payment Scheme Options

Frankfurt School offers various options for the payment of tuition fees. In addition to the Standard Payment (= A) and the Payment in Instalments (= B), Frankfurt School is pleased to announce a new Three-step Payment Model (= C) to ensure students do not need to worry about their finances in these uncertain times.

Frankfurt School thus created subsidised financing packages, such as the modified version of the Three-step Payment Model (= C/H) which includes the costs for Uninest Student Residences for the first year.  The rooms in the student accommodation "Urbanum" have a minimum size of 19 qm and are located in central Frankfurt.


More information on payment options

  • The respectice total price doesn't include any additonal costs (RMV-Ticket, Student Council Fee)
  • If the student is entitled to a reduction in tuition fees (e.g. through a scholarship or early bird discount) this reduction will be taken into account in an adjustment of the final instalment or even extended to the last monthly instalments where needed.
  • The Three-Step-Model including first-year-housing (Uninest) package includes accommodation for the period from August 1, 2021 to July 31, 2022. In this model, no further rental payments need to be made during this period. Nevertheless, a separate contract with Uninest is required, according to which the tenant is responsible for paying a security deposit to Uninest. List prices vary according to the apartment category, the smallest category that is regularly allocated is assumed here (EUR 600 per month).

  • Students who have submitted a declaration of support from a Frankfurt School cooperation partner cannot take advantage of the Three-Step-Model.
  • Frankfurt School students have the option of receiving KfW funding of up to EUR 650 per month.
