Studying abroad is not only a challenging quest, it can be quite expensive too. That is why many prospective students search for an institution that fits their needs and can also provide them with financial support in the form of a scholarship.
NHTV Breda University of Applied Sciences is definitely an option worth considering when looking for scholarships. New students from outside of the EU/EEA who wish to pursue one of the offered Bachelor's studies can also apply for NHTV Breda’s scholarship programme. Within this programme, eligible students could save € 3000 worth of study costs during the first academic year. Students who continue to achieve good study results (48 EC) during their study’s length can save an additional € 1500 annually, up to a total of 4 years.
Institution fee at NHTV Breda
The tuition fee for Bachelor’s programmes at NHTV Breda during the 2016-2017 academic year for non-EU/EEA students is € 9,107 (institution fee). A scholarship can reduce this amount by almost 33% during the first year of study and over 16% in the following years.
