Hints for incomers

Please inform us if and when you want to start with our program. It would be nice to get an update about your process (visa, accommodation, arrival in Köthen) from time to time.

For the registration it is mandatory that you provide the following documents:

  • Original Bachelor diploma and transcript (translated)
  • A valid passport
  • 1 passport photo
  • Admission letter
  • A German public health insurance certificate and
  • Receipt of the semester contribution.


Currently there are no tuition fees for the Master Program of Biomedical Engineering - you only have to pay a “semester-contribution” of about 80 Euro for the each semester.

The semester contribution for this Spring semester is EURO 76,00 and has to be transferred in full into the following account:

Bank:    Deutsche Bundesbank
BIC: MARKDEF1810     IBAN: DE35810000000081001539
Recipient:    Hochschule Anhalt/ Abt. Köthen
Purpose:    Application No._name, first name_MBE2018-2

( _ = empty space) Note: In the transfer slip, the matriculation number must be written left-aligned and without any gaps to indicate the purpose. Only this will ensure the automatic assignment of your semester fee and your enrolment.

German public health insurance

It's necessary to have it, but it's difficult to get from your home country. Don't worry about it. That's why we help you in this case AFTER YOUR ARRIVING in Köthen to sign up for the public health insurance and to get the certificate for enrolment in our program.

Deadline for semester contribution - April 15th 2019

The semester contribution money need to arrive at Anhalt University's account by April 15th. This should be done from all incomers, even if you have not arrived in Köthen yet. The money can be refunded if you are not able to enroll in time.

Banks usually charge for transfer of funds and often subtract those fees from the amount you are transferring. You need to make sure that your bank will transfer the whole amount of EURO 76,00 into the university account. Only then you will be able to get registered.
If you are sure you will arrive before April 10th, we also offer the possibility to pay the contribution in cash at our University.

As requested by law, it is mandatory to have a German public health insurance for students under the age of 30. We will gladly help you to get such health insurance after your arrival in Köthen. A travel insurance or a private insurance will be not excepted for registration at a German University.
Please don’t get insured in your home country since this could cause serious problems here in Germany.
