Tuition Fee Payment Plan

Since we welcome all types of students regardless of background, we realize that applicants come from a wide range of socio-economic circumstances as well. For that reason, we offer different payments options for the yearly tuition fee. You can either pay the fee in one go at the start of the academic year, or you can pay the tuition in instalments (up to 9)*. If you opt to pay in installments, an administration fee of € 25 will be charged. You can indicate your preferred plan during the final step in your admissions process.

* Do note that first year non-EEA students will not have the option to pay the tuition fee in installments for visa application reasons. In year 2 and 3, you can opt to pay in installments like all other students.

UCR Scholarships

For students who do not have the means to fully fund their studies, UCR has a number of different scholarships options.  All UCR scholarships are first and foremost need-based scholarships, for which students qualify only if their parents’ net combined  annual income falls below 40,000 euros.

The awarded amount of each scholarship is dependent on whether you pay European or non-European tuition fees. Depending on the scholarship you are awarded, scholarships are either for one year only, or for the full three years of the program.

Scholarship Application Process

You can use the chat pop-up on this page to determine whether you qualify for any of the scholarships, and if so which ones. Please note, however, that you may only apply for one scholarship.

My life was changed completely with several thousand Euros that my parents didn't have but that I received in scholarships and interest free loans at the right time.
