Funding

The principal criteria for financial aid are academic credentials, language and communication skills, and teaching performance and experience. Financial need is generally not considered, except in the awarding of tuition waivers. For incoming students, the academic credentials evaluation is based on grades, recommendation letters, mathematical background, GRE scores, and TOEFL/IELTS scores. For continuing students, progress in the academic program (grades, requirements satisfied, and research progress) is considered also.

Studyportals Tip: Students can search online for independent or external scholarships that can help fund their studies. Check the scholarships to see whether you are eligible to apply. Many scholarships are either merit-based or needs-based.
