No discounts are available for Master’s programmes that are offered on a fee-paying basis only (with no state-funded places).
The size of the discount offered to international students shall be fixed and granted to foreign nationals for the entire duration of their studies*. However, each year you will need to reconfirm your good academic performance.
Good academic performance implies that throughout your studies at your degree programme, you meet all the following criteria:
- you are not subject to disciplinary action in the form of reprimand;
- upon completion of each and any interim assessment (before retakes) you have:
- no more than two grades lower than 6 (on a 10-point scale);
- no grades below 4 on a 10-point scale;
- no missed assessments for no valid reason.
* Please note that a foreign national may be granted only one discount at a time from those listed in the table. Should a foreign national be eligible for more than one discount, he/she may select only one discount at his/her own discretion.
This provision doesn’t apply to discounts granted for early conclusion and payment of tuition fee agreement, in this case, the discount is granted for one year only.
