Study Allowances

Full-time students have the right to apply for a needs-based study allowance which is designed to support students from financially disadvantaged backgrounds in terms of their access to higher education, success in studies and completion of a study programme with a nominal duration.

Students can apply for a need-based special allowance if their application for a needs-based study allowance was rejected in the state portal for the reason that their earlier income exceeded the limit established for the granting of the allowance but the income of the applicant has recently decreased. To receive a special need-based allowance, a student should submit an application in ÕIS.

Bachelor and master level students can also apply for a scholarship based on study results.

Speciality grant is for students who have started their studies from an academic year 2014/15 and are studying either Applied Computer Science, Computer Science (BA), Human-Computer Interaction, Digital Learning Games or Educational Technology. The grant is 160 euros per month. Speciality grant can be applied twice a year (15.09.-1.10. and 15.02.-1.03.) in ÕIS.

Doctoral allowance is a monetary allowance granted to a person in Doctoral studies pursuant to requirements established in Study Allowances and Study Loans Act to enable commitment to Doctoral studies and research and to cover the expenses related to the acquisition of education.
