Furthermore, we welcome international students who are willing to share their knowledge and perspectives with us, whilst enjoying the study opportunities at our University.

No matter whether you are a student planning a stay abroad or an incoming student, one of the most pressing issues when preparing a stay abroad is adequate financing. To assist you in finding ample funding, this website offers information on a plethora of scholarships.
