Most of the English taught study programmes, still not all, offer tuition-waiver scholarships. The tuition-waiver scholarship covers the tuition fee if the student meets the nominal study load requirement. Nominal study load is completed if no more than 6 credits are missing from the 30 ECTS workload per semester. If students on tuition-waiver study places fail to complete sufficient amount of credits per semester, they have to pay for the credits not earned.
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).
Please check the website of each programme to find out whether a programme has tuition-waiver scholarships.
