Com­ple­tion of Stu­dies Grants

HSD > Current Students > Student Life > Scholarships & Funding > Completion of Studies Grants

​​​​​​The prime objective of a Completion of Studies Grant is to help high-performing foreign students to concentrate on their studies in the last phase of their programme (thesis, final exams) by providing financial support.

The grant is around € 300 per month and generally awarded for three months. The total sum is therefore around € 900. Students have no legal claim to a grant.

Please read theinformation sheet​ carefully.
