Tuition fee waivers

The University of Borås  offers tuition fee waivers to highly qualified students required to pay tuition fees.

The tuition fee waivers offered by the University of Borås are intended to partly or fully cover the tuition fee, they are not designed to cover living costs. The payment is not made in monetary terms; instead the tuition fee will be reduced by the amount of the tuition fee waiver.

The University’s criteria in awarding tuition fee waivers are good study records as well as qualifications that the University assesses to be in line with the University’s prioritised educational or research areas.

Notifications regarding the tuition fee waivers will be published on the first Notification of Selection Results in spring 2016 .
