There are common participation costs for studying in EPCL. The exact amount is determined yearly by the Joint Commission. The participation costs have to be paid each semester to the first selected university.
PhD students have to pay student services fees to TUD and the universities which they have selected as host university for each semester (if there is any).
Participation costs can be waived by a partner institution if alternative funds for covering these costs are available and the Joint Commission approves this waiving.
