Studying at Burg Giebichenstein Kunsthochschule Halle is free of charge. This applies up to the first professional qualification (Bachelor's degree) and for studies in a subsequent consecutive degree programme (Master's degree) leading to a further professional qualification. Studies in the Department of Art leading to the “Diplom” and state examination degrees are also free of charge.

Semester fee

The semester fee for the winter semester 2022/23 and the summer semester 2023 is 248.40 EUR and consists of the general semester fee (80 EUR), the fee for the semester ticket (160.40 EUR) and the student body fee (8 EUR).

Semester ticket

Since the winter semester 2017/18, Burg Giebichenstein University of Art and Design Halle has been offering a semester ticket that applies to all students and is obligatory. With it, students can use the S-Bahn, train, tram and bus in the entire MDV area around the clock. The student ID card serves as the ticket.
