What are the conditions for a tuition waiver?
The tuition fee waivers are awarded for the duration of the normative time for completing the degree (2 academic years for a Master's degree) on the condition that the student progresses in their studies according to the normative schedule.
In order to retain the waiver, the student must complete at least 55 credits in an academic year. The credits must be for courses included in the degree requirements. If the student completes less than 55 credits in an academic year, they will lose their scholarship entirely.
The scholarship system will also serve as an incentive. From the Academic year 2019-2020 onwards, it is possible to earn a 100 % waiver for the second year of studies by completing at least 60 credits of courses included in the degree requirements in an academic year. Details for the second year scholarships will be communicated to the students during their first year.
