Tuition fees and scholarships for 2022/2023
Centria UAS offers a scholarship programme for students who are subject to paying tuition fees. (Applicable tuition fee must be paid in full according to instructions, no instalments possible)
Early bird discount
Student gets an early bird discount of 1500 € of the first year’s tuition fee if the study place is accepted and the tuition fee is paid within two weeks after the notification. The discount will be reduced from the first year’s payment. Detailed instructions on how to pay the tuition fee will be sent along with an acceptance letter. Please notice that applicants admitted for a Master’s degree are not entitled to an early bird discount.
Tuition fees and scholarships for students continuing their studies
Tuition fees for the second academic year are paid in halves. The first invoice to cover expenses for the fall semester studies will always be sent out in the spring semester (May). The second invoice will be sent out in the following fall semester (November). However, the second half of the tuition fees can be avoided if the student qualifies for a scholarship. The scholarship application is sent to our students every fall via email during September/October.
Centria UAS offers a 50 % scholarship as a waiver to all students who usually complete 55 ECTS (study credits) in the previous academic year. Exceptionally in 2021 and 2022, due to the Covid-19 pandemic, the credit requirements for granting scholarships have been lowered to 45 ECTS.
If a student applies and qualifies for the scholarship, they will not be sent an invoice in the fall semester (November).
