The scholarship for international fee-paying students is offered as a reduction of the tuition fee.
A scholarship committee is overall responsible for the principle of the scholarships and decides every year on how to distribute the funds available between departments/faculties.
It is the departments/faculties that decide on structure (100% or 50% reduction of tuition fee or a combination of them both) and number of scholarships for each program.
It is also the department/faculty responsible for each Master’s program that decides which applicants should be awarded scholarships.
If a student is awarded a 50% reduction the tuition fee, invoice sent will be reduced with the same amount.
For the academic year of 2018/19 it has been decided to distribute the scholarship funds as follows:
Five full (100%) tuition fee deduction scholarships at the School of Business, Economics and IT.
- Master of science in finance
- International business, master programme in business administration
- International politics, master programme in political science
Two full (100%) and two half (50%) tuition fee deduction scholarships at the department of Engineering Science.
- Master in robotics and automation
- Advanced manufacturing engineering
The scholarship applicants are ranked based on two criteria. The relevance of the bachelor program on which the student has been admitted and the academic results achieved.
If students are given the same merit number according to these two criteria, the ranking of the home university that issued the Bachelor degree as well as working experience can be taken into consideration. This applies in the event where two candidates can’t be separated by the first two criteria only.
