Admission deposit

The admission deposit applies only to international applicants that have a foreign citizenship or applicants that have not obtained their degree in Germany. Upon acceptance of a degree course place at the ISM the applicant has to pay an admission fee (deposit) of 3,500 Euro. The admission fee will be deducted in full from the tuition fees for the first semester in the degree course. If the contract is not signed, we retain a processing fee of 500 Euro. The admission fee will be refunded in the event that the applicant proves that the visa application for a course of study at the ISM has been definitely rejected.

Grants and Scholarships

The ISM offers different grants and partial or full scholarships. You will find all financing opportunities in our Financing Brochure (PDF) or by visiting this website.

Admission Deposit

If you fulfill the admission requirements at ISM, you will receive an offer letter from us. Please sign this and if you are a foreign student (if you are not a German citizen or do not have a previous German educational qualification) you have to make a deposit to the university's bank account through Flywire. This deposit will be mentioned in the acceptance letter and will be deducted from your tuition. After you have paid the deposit, you will receive the letter of admission from the university and your tuition contract documents. You will need both for your visa application.


International payments

In order to simplify international payments, the ISM has established a cooperation with Flywire. This service can be used to pay the fees for the admission test, for example. Flywire takes care of the transfer along with calculating the currency difference (foreign currency to Euro). This is a simple and comfortable payment option to make your start at the ISM easier.
