No, the participation fee is in principle the same regardless of your study path. However, there are two participation fee levels, and the level that applies to you depends on your citizenship, and whether you would be considered an “international” student at your prospective home university (the first university in a study path). See the table below.

Your Citizenship Home university Participation fee level (per academic year)
