University enrollment

  • How does university enrollment work?

    Your letter of acceptance will inform you when and where you can register. Please be sure to bring all of the documents indicated on the notice, as registration is otherwise impossible. You will receive your student ID after successful registration. If you're an exchange student, registration can also take place during the orientation program.

  • How do I pay the semester contribution?

    If you participate in our orientation program, you do not have to pay the semester contribution from your home country. You can do this with our help during the orientation program in Marburg. If you do not participate in our orientation program, you must wire the contributions and fees before enrollment. The bank account information is as follows:

    Philipps-Universität Marburg (Payment recipient)

    IBAN: DE 14 5335 0000 0000025810


    Credit institute: Sparkasse Marburg-Biedenkopf

    Please be sure to specify your last name and first name and your matriculation number as applicable as the purpose on your wire transfer (your matriculation number can usually be found on your letter of acceptance). The current semester contribution can be found here. Exchange students pay a contribution discounted by 50 euros.
