Costs and scholarships - 23 November 2022

An academic scholarship is a financial award given to students with good academic results and school performance, it lowers the overall cost of study. Not all students are eligible for academic scholarships. The university admissions committee determines who is eligible for this scholarship, as well as its amount.
