  2. 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.
