What factors determine if I will receive a bursary?
Due to the limited annual varying number of bursaries, selection is very competitive and based primarily upon Nordic relevance of the proposed program of study, as well as applicants’ academic records, references, support material (if applicable). That is why we advise you to describe thoroughly why it is very important or even essential for you to undertake your studies in one of the Nordic countries, versus elsewhere in the world.
