Per each degree programme it is agreed that 50% of the applicants coming outside EU / EEA countries (e.g., from Africa), having the most successful results in the entrance examination, will receive a full exemption from the tuition fee in the first academic year, if they have applied for the scholarship.


During the 2.-4. academic years, a scholarship covering 75% of the yearly tuition fee will be granted provided that the student has accrued:

  • a minimum of 55 credits (ECTS) during the previous academic year (ending on 31st July) in a Bachelor degree programme. The study credits must be included in the degree.
  • a minimum of 25 credits (ECTS) during the previous semester (autumn semester ending  31.12. and spring semester ending 31.7.) in a Master degree programme. The study credits must be included in the degree.


In years 2-4, the remaining 25% of a student’s tuition fee may be waived if the school determines that it is justified based on social, health, or other reasons.
