Bursaries and financial aid

This policy is defined in consultation with faculty and student representatives who sit on the Joint Commission and the University Management Board. A progress report is submitted each year to these two bodies. A monitoring group, consisting of professors, students and experts, meets regularly to evaluate the financial aid scheme and suggest new guidelines.
