The Tuition Reduction Scholarships range from 30% to 100% reduction. The Tuition Reduction Scholarship is mainly based on the scholarship application essay. Other factors that affect the admissions score can be academic results, language proficiency and your interview results. The results for what percentage of Tuition Reduction you will receive will be announced together with your admissions results.
