Costs and Funding

Why are tuition fees charged for the professional Competition and Regulation Masters?

Unlike for standard full-time or part-time Masters programmes taken at university, fees are payable for continuing education programmes such as the Competition and Regulation Masters. This is because the entire course has to be funded from fees as the state does not subsidise such programmes.

What are the fees for the Competition and Regulation Masters?

The fees for the professional Competition and Regulation Masters are 9700 euros. A semester contribution, currently around 200 euros, is also charged each semester.
