Exemption of Entrance and Tuition Fees 

If you are a self-supported student, are unable to pay your tuition fees, and have excellent grades, there is a system that can exempt all, half, or a quarter of your tuition fees. Please send your inquiries to the Academic Affairs section of your faculty/graduate school. Research students and auditors are not eligible to apply.
