Guest Auditor


Amount of the Fee

Since the summer semester 2007, the Heidelberg University of Jewish Studies has been charging a fee for guest auditor studies in accordance with §§ 2, 17 LHGebG in the version of January 1, 2005. The fees are staggered as follows:

  • up to 4 lecture hours per week EUR 51.00
  • up to 6 lecture hours per week EUR 76.00
  • from 7 lecture hours per week EUR 102.00

Upon application, the guest auditor fee can be reduced to EUR 26.00 if the applicant receives assistance with living expenses or assistance in special circumstances. This must be proven by suitable evidence (notification or certificate from the granting authority).

There is no guest auditor fee for students of Heidelberg University.

Guest students of Heidelberg University must pay the above-mentioned guest student fee at the Heidelberg University of Jewish Studies in addition to the fee charged by Heidelberg University.

  • Guest auditors are entitled to attend all lectures.
