There are no tuition fees for doctoral studies. In the event of enrollment however, fees for the Student Services (Beiträge für das Studentenwerk) must be paid on a semester basis. These are made up of a basic fee (Grundbeitrag) and an additional fee for the semester ticket (zusätzlicher Beitrag für das Semesterticket).
For doctoral candidates the university sometimes has individual positions (employment with compulsory social insurance contributions). These are usually associated with a commitment to other tasks. Information on vacancies may be obtained from your supervisor or through job offers.
Another financing option is offered through individual scholarships, which are awarded by institutions or foundations. The GraduateCenterLMU regularly organizes events on the topics of "Finanzierung der Promotion" and "Stipendienanträge schreiben" (in German).
Some doctoral candidates receive funding through a non-university research organisation (scholarship or employment) or finance their doctoral studies through (non-discipline related) employment outside the university.
If the funds are available, participants of doctoral programs can receive financing (scholarship or employment) through the program.
