The University of Skövde awards some partial scholarships to students liable to pay tuition fees attending a master's programme at our University.
UHR Scholarships for master's students
The scholarships are partial tuition fee waivers (50% of the tuition fee). If you are granted, the amount will be automatically deducted from the tuition fee when you receive your invoice.
The scholarships are granted for one academic semester. UHR Scholarships can be extended to subsequent academic semesters provided that the student’s study results are satisfactory. The scholarship granting criterion is academic merit. The scholarships can only be awarded to tuition-paying students.
Please note that you have to be able to finance the remainder of the tuition fee yourself, and to cover all the living expenses during your stay in Sweden.
UHR Scholarships are awarded prior to the commencement of a Master's programme. If you are already admitted or enrolled as a master's student at the University of Skövde, you are not currently eligible to apply for UHR Scholarships.
