Tuition fee reduction 
A tuition fee reduction can be requested from the Director. The processing of this request requires a close examination of the current income situation. Please take note that the income limits are set very low. Regardless of the income levels, the minimum tuition fee is 25 % of the regular tuition fee. 

The application for tuition reduction must be received by the Director of the European School Munich by 31.03.2019 at the latest, accompanied by the complete documents requested. It is not possible to take applications received later or applications that are not complete on the key date into account.
