Every year University West offers a limited number of scholarships to fee-paying master’s students. The scholarships are awarded based on academic excellence.
The University West scholarship covers 25 percent of the tuition fee. The recipients of these scholarships will have their tuition fee waived by 25% for the whole programme length, provided that the study results during the first semester and/ or the first year are satisfactory.
