Most of our admitted students will receive the tuition-waiver scholarship, which means that they do not have to pay the tuition fee if they study on a full-time basis and complete the programme within one year. Full-time study load is completed if no more than 6 credits are missing from the 30 ECTS required per semester according to the curriculum. If students receiving this scholarship fail to complete the full-time study requirement, they have to pay only for the credits not earned from the required. Further information on when a tuition-waiver scholarship holder has to start paying the tuition fee is presented here. Price per credit point is 60 EUR.
