Tuition deposit

  • A 1,500 euro tuition deposit (non-refundable) is required to secure a place in the incoming class.
  • This payment is part of the tuition fees for the first semester.
  • Admission is allocated on a rolling basis, thus the payment deadline for the tuition deposit varies and is determined by the date of each candidate’s application.
  • Candidates will be given this deadline in their notification of admission and will also receive a Study Agreement Form, which must be submitted along with the tuition deposit.
  • Candidates will typically be notified of admission six weeks before the tuition deposit and the Study Agreement Form are due.
