FREE ACCESS TO HIGHER EDUCATION
The University selects its own students according to personality, area of subject interest and motivation. This selection must occur irrespective of an applicant’s financial background. The free choice of all applicants to make their financial contribution after or during their course of study is in keeping with this principle.
INDEPENDENT STUDY ORGANIZATION
Students are entitled to exercise their personal independence and responsibility in designing their own course of study, without limitation due to having to make a financing contribution. Economization of one’s education – a principle by which financial necessity restricts the time a person is allowed to study – is not adequate to this entitlement. Paying a fixed amount while one is still in school is an expression of this principle.
FREE CHOICE OF A PROFESSIONAL CAREER
All graduates should be entitled to choose freely what profession they take up. Such a choice must not be limited by a set mountain of debt. This principle is reflected in payment later according to one’s income; i. e., once you have completed your education, you contribute what you can, based on your financial capacity.
