Scholarship coverage

  • tuition fee reduction


In order to successfully complete your studies and apply for graduation, you may be awarded a scholarship for one additional term beyond the standard duration of the degree programme (i.e. one term in addition to the three years of a Bachelor’s programme, and one term in addition to the two years of a Master’s programme).

Applicable programmes


The scholarship for one additional term is offered as a 100% tuition fee waiver. 



  • The scholarship has a strict requirement that you submit your Bachelor's or Master's thesis (as applicable) by the agreed deadline, successfully complete the programme, and apply for graduation within the additional term.
  • Please note that the scholarship can be used only for completing the remaining compulsory studies in your programme. This means that you cannot apply for the additional term scholarship to e.g. complete studies outside your degree or go on exchange, unless an exchange period is a compulsory part of your studies. 
  • If your programme includes a compulsory exchange period and you apply for the scholarship for one additional term to go on one, bear in mind that the scholarship terms require you to complete your studies and apply for graduation within the additional term. For example, course registrations after an exchange period might take some time, so it is good to take this into account when planning your studies.

Application deadline


You can apply for the scholarship on the condition that your studies have progressed in accordance with the approved study plan and that you have a realistic, approved plan to complete the remainder of the programme.

You can normally apply for the scholarship between April and May, but applications may be considered at other times if the circumstances demand it.

Please note that the additional term is likely to impact on your residence permit, student accommodation and financial arrangements, so it is highly recommendable that you start planning as early as possible and use the help of student services in the process.
