Master Programmes in Germany on Urban-, Regional-, and  Infrastructure Planning



Costs & Funding


First Year: 13,000 Euro
Second Year: 12,000 to 18,000 Euro
(including living expenses, flight costs, accomodation, insurances etc.).


As a "self-financed" participant you are required to

  • transfer the service fees and the fees for the language course (international students only) and administration to SPRING for the first year of study in Dortmund;
  • submit a statement of regular income of yourself or a private sponsor together with a declaration that she or he will finance your entire studies here in Dortmund as well as the 2nd year of SPRING at one of our partner universities;
  • transfer the matriculation fees to the TU Dortmund University at the start of the course and
  • you will have to transfer the academic expenses which arise for the selected second year destination to the respective partner before the start of the second course year.


A limited number of scholarships are awarded to prominent/outstanding SPRING candidates from developing countries on a highly competitive basis from the German Academic Exchange Service (DAAD). Scholarships from DAAD cover the entire two-year SPRING Programme. 

The selection of qualified candidates is jointly taken by SPRING and DAAD and requires the submission of a completely filled-in DAAD application form (available here). 

Because admission to the SPRING Programme does not automatically include an award of a scholarship, we advice applicants to seek for financial support from their own countries or from international donors.
For international applicants: Please find here a list of potential donor organisations
For german applicants: Please find here a list of pontential donor organisations
