Grants and financing

Against a backdrop of increased mobility and globalisation, there are numerous financial grants available to foreign students looking to finance a stay in order to study or do research.

A range of financial support packages, including grants schemes, are available from higher education establishments in the host country and in the country of origin, as well as from government and international organisations.

The grants available include:

  • Grants at Bachelor's and Master's level;
  • Specialisation grants (supplementary Master's);
  • Grants at doctoral and postdoctoral level;
  • Research grants.

It is recommended that you define your project sufficiently early, ideally one year in advance. The quality of the project, the applicant's motivation and the applicant's academic background are the determining factors.
