Second Degree Program


A second degree is a course of study after an already achieved university degree in another course of study, for which the first degree is not an admission requirement. This means that if a prospective student has a higher-quality degree (diploma, master's degree, magister degree, state examination), second tuition fees are charged for each further course of study (including a bachelor's degree). For a further Bachelor's degree after a successfully completed Bachelor's degree, NO fees will be charged.

Tuition Fees for Second Degrees

The legal basis for this is § 12 paragraph 4 SächsHSFG and § 1 paragraph 1 of the Tuition Fee and Remuniration Regulations of the TU Bergakademie. It stipulates:

The TU Bergakademie Freiberg charges fees for a course of study that leads to another professionally qualifying university degree and is not a master's degree on the basis of a bachelor's degree if the student already has a master's, diploma or magister's degree or a degree in a course of study with a state or church final examination.

Currently, the second tuition fees are 300 € per semester (plus semester fee of 94€.) The obligation to pay fees begins with the first semester of the second degree programme. The fees are due first at enrollment and later at the beginning of each semester in the course of re-registration at TU Bergakademie Freiberg.
