Level of Study

The VUFP scholarship covers the tuition fees. VUFP scholarship does not provide any additional allowance towards study or living costs.

The VUFP scholarship can be granted for a one or two-year Master’s programme. The scholarship will only be extended for the second year of the two-year Master’s programme if 100% of the credits of the first year have been achieved.
