Use of Study Quality Funds

At the beginning of the 2014/15 winter semester, the tuition fees of the universities in Lower Saxony was compensated by the state's tuition quality funds. Leuphana University uses these funds (as well as the tuition fees) in the best possible, transparent and timely way to improve quality.

According to the Lower Saxony Higher Education Act (NHG), study quality funds may be used to ensure and improve the quality of teaching and study conditions (NHG, §14b, sentences 1 to 3).

"Within this framework, they are to be used primarily to improve the mentoring relationship between students and teachers, to offer additional tutorials and to improve the equipment of libraries, teaching rooms and laboratories. Insofar as additional teaching staff are financed from the study quality funds, they may only be obliged to carry out teaching tasks which supplement or deepen the range of courses required for the courses of study (...)".
