Students are welcome in Kiel! All those who move to Kiel for their studies can apply for a welcome payment from the city.
This applies to all new residents who are enrolled at Kiel University (CAU), Kiel University of Applied Sciences, Muthesius University or the Wirtschaftsakademie Kiel (WAK). The one-off payment amounts to 100 Euros. It is paid subject to the condition that the student is a registered main resident of the city for a minimum of one year.
