Please note: Please ensure that you use the correct information in the Reference (see Screenshot).

Please note: In the case of international transfers, there is usually a fee. You will therefore have to add this fee to the amount you transfer. If you fail to do this, the bank will automatically deduct the fee from the transfer with the result that the semester fee will not be transferred in total. In this case, we will not be able to enrol you and you will not receive your documents in time.
