Merit scholarship

The dean of the faculty may award merit scholarships to students who have achieved outstanding study results. Study average during the standard length of study is used to assess the study results. The merit scholarship may also be awarded if the student completed a relevant part of the studies at other faculties or higher education institutions where the courses were recognized by the dean of the respective faculty. The merit scholarship may be paid as a lump sum or on a regular basis. The merit scholarship may not be awarded if a Bachelor or an Master student has not achieved a minimum average of 60 credits in the preceding academic years. Further details including, without limitation, the relevant period of studies, required study average, or form of payment, may be determined by the dean.
