Full tuition fee waiver scholarship
A tuition fee waiver is a non-monetary scholarship granted to the best candidates according to the points earned in the course of admission. There is no separate application required. Scholarship is awarded for the whole study period.
Recipients of the scholarships are required to study according to nominal study load. Nominal study load means that at least 60 ECTS from the curriculum per year must be completed. If the student fails more than 6 credit points from the cumulative study load or falls on partial study load, he/she will lose the tuition fee waiver and will start paying for studies.
In most cases, candidates are informed regarding tuition fee waiver when they receive their conditional acceptance offer. Nevertheless, if we are able to offer a full tuition fee waiver place after the first offer (past the June 1), we will also contact directly with a suitable candidate and inform them.
A tuition fee waiver scholarship (targeted scholarship) is non-monetary targeted scholarship to support studies of full-time students (matriculated in the academic year 2017/2018) on certain curriculum.
