*Tuition waiver scholarships available
Most of the Bachelor’s and Master’s programmes taught in English language offer tuition-waiver scholarships. The tuition-waiver scholarship means that the students receiving this scholarship do not have to pay the tuition fee, if they complete a full-time study load. Full time study load is completed if no more than 6 credits are missing from the 30 ECTS workload per semester. The tuition-waiver scholarships are allocated at the time of admission. It will be noted in the admission letter whether a student is granted tuition–waiver scholarship or is granted a tuition fee based study place (needs to pay for studies).
NB! Please check the website of each programme to find out whether a programme has tuition-waiver scholarships.
