The tuition fees for each academic year at the Kassel School of Medicine are currently €15,000 per year. This roughly corresponds to the tuition fees UK and European students have to pay to study on other programmes at the University of Southampton.
BM(EU) students graduate after 5 years and so earn their ﬁrst salary in the sixth year as part of the Foundation Programme and are no longer enrolled as students of a university during this time.
The Kassel School of Medicine is aware that not everyone can aﬀord the tuition fees. Therefore, we endeavour to provide for all suitable and gifted students this opportunity to s study in Kassel and Southampton. So far, the following funding options exist for students of the Kassel School of Medicine:
Study loan from Sparkasse Kassel:
A low interest study loan to ﬁnance the tuition fees of a total of €75,000 in 5 years by Kassel is offered from Sparkasse / Heilberufecenter of Kasseler Sparkasse. It also offers a comprehensive range of all ﬁnancial services, the advisory centre oﬀers care tailored precisely to the professional group throughout the medical sector. Specialist knowledge and quality are in demand here when it comes to solid ﬁnancial planning and securing the future of your private assets. Hand in hand, the team of the Heilberufscenter takes care of your concerns and is available to advise you.

International BAföG (pro rata tuition fees, travel expenses, monthly demand rate according to BAFöG conditions)
An application to this fund can be made for the ﬁrst two years of study in Southampton. The granting of the funding depends on the conditions in each individual case (including nationality, permanent residence). Here you can obtain information from the BAföG-Office Hannover Region.
As a social business, Deutsche Bildung has been supporting students of all disciplines in their studies since 2007, even abroad. With ﬂexible ﬁnancing and the WissensPlus funding program with training, job application advice and coaching for a successful career start. Another advantage: No risk of excess debt - unlike a student loan, graduates later pay back their income on a pro rata basis, and only when they have safely landed a job. The Deutsche Bildung team is pleased to remain at your disposal.
Please note: Student loans by Student Finance England are NOT an option: they are NOT granted to BM(EU) students. This depends on the programme, NOT on speciﬁc studying circumstances. The University of Southampton does not have any inﬂuence over this decision.
