The reduction of tuition fees is offered initially for the first semester and then renewed, if the students maintain good academic results. Find out more about the scholarship on the university website.
The degree programs at traditional universities can be quite expensive, even when scholarships and discounts are available. This is why online degree programs have become so sought after lately. Their popularity is rising, as they require smaller tuition fees and they do not involve relocation costs. Online degree programs are available in many domains, from technology to arts and social sciences. You can enroll to a distance learning program if you want to obtain a bachelor degree, or a master degree or even an associate degree. Most of these degrees are recognized by other universities and by companies, especially if the university that offers the distance learning program is accredited. This is why students interested in online degree programs are advised to check if the university they apply to is accredited.
