Costs and Financial Aid

Costs of Studying at the ITI

The cost for our students is deliberately kept at a minimum to enable qualified persons from all over the world to study at the Katholische Hochschule ITI despite limits to financial means. Consequently, the tuition and fees charged cover less than half of our actual expenses per student. The ITI is an Ecclesiastical Faculty which is financially independent and relies entirely on donations and tuition payments. We look to our benefactors and students who possess the financial means to assist us in meeting our financial necessities. The ITI gratefully accepts donations, which are tax deductible. Your generosity towards the ITI is deeply appreciated. Help support our students.

  • €10300 (paid to ITI for tuition, registration and lodging)
