By ‘EU students’, we mean students with citizenship in one of the EEA countries (all EU member states and Norway, Liechtenstein and Iceland) or Switzerland. ‘Non-EU students’ are therefore classified as all students who do not comply with the above definition of an ‘EU student’.
In order to prove that you are an EU citizen and therefore, in case of acceptance, granted a tuition fee waiver, you need to send a photocopy of your passport or a photocopy of a valid identity card. This should clearly state your citizenship and the card’s expiration date. For the ID card to be considered valid, your copy must reach us a maximum of 3 months after the expiration date has passed. (For example, if the last valid day is 5th May, your copy must reach us latest by 5th August.)
For citizens of an EU/EEA country or Switzerland who do not have a valid passport or ID card, you can submit an official document which certifies your citizenship. This document must be certified, stamped and must reach us a maximum of 3 months after the expiration date has passed. Please note that this document must be officially translated to English, French or German if it has been issued in a language other than these three.
