  • Tuition fee waivers

    Upon written request, which is to be submitted together with the application for the M.C.B.L. program, particularly qualified applicants and applicants who cannot pay the tuition fees due to financial hardship can be completely or partially exempted from paying the fees. In case you would like to apply for a fee waiver due to financial hardship, please make sure to submit any relevant documents which can prove your financial situation, e.g. your personal income, income of your parents.
    The admissions committee decides on a case-by-case basis whether fee waivers are granted (in general, a fee waiver of 25% will be granted if qualifications are met). Because the decision is made by the admissions committee after submission of all applications, we cannot provide a definite answer regarding your eligibility for a fee waiver beforehand. For more information, please contact the M.C.B.L. program manager via e-mail at mcbl
