You have to pay the semester contribution at HfM Saar, which is obligatory for every student in Germany. This is not a tuition fee.

European Health Insurance Card:

During a temporary stay in one of the 28 EU countries as well as Iceland, Liechtenstein, Norway and Switzerland, this free card gives you access to medically necessary public health services – on the same terms and conditions and at the same costs (free in some countries) as those insured in the respective country. The card is issued by your statutory health insurance provider. Similar to the former Certificate of Entitlement to Benefits in Kind during a Stay in Another Member State, the European Health Insurance Card (EHIC) is only valid for temporary stays abroad (holidays, secondment of employees, job search, studies). It covers medically necessary treatment by doctors, dentists or at hospitals as well as necessary treatment of pre-existing or chronic medical conditions during a temporary stay abroad. The card cannot be used if you travel abroad for the express purpose of obtaining medical treatment. As before, such treatment should only be sought after approval by your health insurance provider. The card does not guarantee free treatment. Health insurance systems vary from country to country. In other countries, you may have to pay for services which are free in your home country.


Please note that we cannot provide rooms for guest students. We therefore recommend that you look for accommodation in good time. You may also contact our student’s union for support (
