Tuition Fees & Scholarships

Tuition fee

  • With a scholarship, on the other hand, a large part (in some cases even all) of the costs will be covered of you. There are different programs, some of which can also be combined.



  • Sports scholarship: our goal!  This is all about your athletic performance.  A sports scholarship covers parts (partial scholarship) or even all of your costs (full scholarship).  A partial scholarship varies in amount and can cover up to 90% of your tuition fees. Outstanding athletes even sometimes receive some kind of "pocket money" in addition to their scholarship.

  • Academic scholarship: Based on your academic performance.  The better your high school diploma and your SAT test, the greater the chances. With an GPA of 2.5 and a good SAT test result, you can usually qualify for it.

  • International scholarship: Internationality is an important criterion in the rankings of universities. Therefore, universities offer incentives to of foreign students.

  • Need-based aid: Financial support from the university in the event that your family has limited financial resources (non-repayable).
