The fee for IN SITU for external students is 1400 €. Below you will find a breakdown of what the fee includes.


The cost of the accomodation is fully covered. This does not include the deposit which will cost 200 EUR, but which will be fully returned after your stay.


Although we try to cover most of the teaching inhouse, we strive to present you the most cutting edge topics, which sometimes requires inviting a guest lecturer from abroad. Although none of our teachers receives a fee, it is good practice to pay accomodation and travel costs for those lectures.


We organize a couple of trips and activities, i.e. most famously the trips to Hamburg and Berlin, including transport, accommodation and the entrance fees of activities organized by us. Please bear in mind: meals are not included on these trips.

Local Transport

Hanover is a big city. The accomodation and the university are unfortunately not in walking distance. Hence we provide you with a travel pass that allows you to travel within Hanover, i.e. use the buses and underground for free.  


IN SITU requires a lot of organizing in the background. Volunteers alone cannot be trusted to accomplish this task, which is why we have a designated IN SITU coordinater and student assistants to give you the best possible experience.

Additional cost you will have to cover

  • Your travelling costs to and from Hanover
  • Deposit of 200 € for the student accommodation (you will get a refund if everything is ok after your stay)
  • Food costs (lunch can be had for a good price at the canteen on campus, breakfast and dinner can be prepared at the student accommodation)
  • Private activities

Scholarships available!

We are happy to announce that IN SITU received a number of scholarships and  we are able to offer a fee reduction to some of our participants. All who are interested in receiving a 400 Euro scholarship and therefore have their fee reduced to 1000 Euro should apply immediately and send us a motivation letter. The  letter of motivation should contain and demonstrate  the special motivation to attend IN SITU and the reason why a scholarship should be granted  (1 or 1,5 page of text). Any supporting documentation, such as certicates and the respective letter should  be uploaded with the application.

Please note that the number of available scholarships is limited. Scholarships are awarded according to several criteria which include, but are not limited to, profession, academic excellence, motivation and financial need.
