Tuition waiver scholarships for bachelor’s and master’s degree programmes

Most of the English taught study programmes, still, not all, 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 a tuition waiver scholarship or a tuition fee-based study place (needs to pay for studies).
