Tuition for the two-year MPP and MIA programmes at the Hertie School is currently €32,500 (€8,125 per semester). Applicants can apply for scholarships in the form of full or partial tuition waivers.
This tuition rate applies to the class entering in September 2017.
A €1500 tuition deposit (non-refundable) is required in order to secure a place in the incoming class (MPP and MIA). This payment is part of the first semester tuition.
Because admission is allocated on a rolling basis, the payment deadline for the tuition deposit varies, and is determined by the date of each candidate’s application.
Candidates will be given this deadline in their notification of admission, and will also receive a Study Agreement Form, which must be submitted along with the tuition deposit. Candidates will typically be notified of admission six weeks before the tuition deposit and the Study Agreement Form are due.
Below is a table charting the payment deadlines according to application dates.
