What are the conditions?
Requirements vary. For example you have to pay full tuition in advance for a particular program, show high achievements, or potential to become an ambassador for the sponsoring institution.
But please remember, scholarships from universities for international students usually do not cover the full costs of your studies. In the education world, it’s known as partial scholarship, which only covers some portion (partially) of the study costs. When searching for information, you can search for bursaries or award keywords, and of course, scholarships.
Before the registration period is closed, you can try to pursue the scholarship requirements. For more information, you can check the official website respectively.
