    SEPA Direct Debit

    This payment option is available only to existing students who want to re-enrol ONLINE to continue their studies in the upcoming semester. If you are a new student enrolling in a programme at the University of Würzburg, please pay your semester fees by bank transfer.

    To be able to make payments to the University by SEPA direct debit, you will have to complete two steps:

    1.    Authorise the University of Würzburg for SEPA direct debit transactions

    2.    Initiate a SEPA direct debit transaction

    The information provided on this page is intended to help you avoid common mistakes that could cause delays in the payment process. When we use the term ‘SEPA direct debit’, we mean the SEPA core direct debit.

    This is what you need to know:

    • You can only set up a SEPA direct debit arrangement from a (German) current account. Please do NOT indicate any other type of account (savings accounts etc.).
    • By authorising us for SEPA direct debit transactions, you confirm that you are the holder of, or an authorised signatory to, the account you indicated. You cannot authorise SEPA transactions debiting accounts held by third parties (e.g. your parents).
    • Please make sure that there are sufficient funds in your account to allow payment of the invoiced amount. Your bank will not execute partial payments.
    • Please be aware that the payment will fail if the account to be debited was closed or the account holder requests a refund of the payment.
