Scholarships & Financial Aid

UNYP is keen for as many students as possible to have the opportunity to study in Europe in English. For this reason, we offer a number of scholarships, tuition fee reductions and financial incentives for students on our bachelor’s degree, master’s degree, MBA and Ph.D programs.

SCHOLARSHIPS AND FINANCIAL AID RULES

  • All scholarships, awards and discounts apply only to the courses/credits offered by UNYP and not to those offered by a partner university (e.g. SUNY ESC)
  • If a student is eligible for any other tuition waiver or scholarship (e.g. the Graduate Scholarship), the waiver for early payment is calculated before the first waiver is applied
  • Tuition waivers cannot be combined except with the early payment discount
  • For applicants applying for a scholarship, only the results of the first exam that is taken will be considered
  • All Merit Scholarships, Awards and Tuition Discounts must be applied for and awarded before the start of the program for which the applicant has been accepted

Admission scholarships and awards for all bachelor’s degree applicants

Admission Merit Scholarships

UNYP Merit Scholarships are treated as tuition waivers, and will be calculated and deducted from the student’s tuition. Students must retain a full-time student status at all times, must not interrupt their studies and must meet all of the following criteria:

50% of Annual Tuition fees

  • Score 100 or above on UNYP’s institutional English language test or 250 on the TOEFL computer-based test (CBT) or 100 on the TOEFL internet-based test (IBT) or IELTS 8, and score 22 or above on the UNYP math test
  • Alternatively, score 700 or above on both of the SAT Math and English tests
  • Demonstrate excellent school results (top 20% bracket)
  • Be recommended for the scholarship following a successful admissions interview
  • Provide a completed application file before the program starts

30% of Annual Tuition fees

  • Score 92 or above on UNYP’s institutional English language test or 237 on the TOEFL computer-based test (CBT) or 92 on the TOEFL internet-based test (IBT) or IELTS 7, and score 20 or above on the UNYP math test
  • Alternatively, score 650 or above on both of the SAT Math and English tests

Transfer students must have a minimum of 2.8 out of 4 (or equivalent based on different grading systems) to apply for an Admission Merit Scholarship. This replaces the “Demonstrate excellent high school results (top 20% bracket)” criteria in the scholarship requirements; the rest of the requirements remain the same.

Payment plans are available for all UNYP study programs.
