Fees & financial aid

We believe that nobody should be denied admissions because of financial constraints. We offer extensive scholarships covering tuition fees and accommodation.

Scholarships

Our scholarships are based on family income

  • Students with an annual family income of less than 15 lakhs are eligible for different levels of scholarships.
  • Scholarships are for tuition and accommodation.

Financial assistance process

If you need financial support, you will need to fill in a form applying for financial assistance. The University reserves the right to award or reject financial assistance and its decision will be final and binding.

  • You will need to fill in an application form providing details of income, including salary, pension, rent, agriculture, business, investments, commission or other sources of income. 
  • You have to produce supporting documents at the time of interview. We do not consider delayed submissions, so do prepare for the documentation required. 
  • We will conduct our own verification and due diligence of your documents and reserve the right to make a final decision that is non-negotiable. 

Four types of scholarship

We offer different types of scholarship. Remember, fees are divided into categories of tuition and accommodation.

  • A full scholarship including a full waiver of tuition and accommodation fees
    • You will have to pay charges for food at actuals.
    • In exceptional circumstances, we do offer scholarships for food. 
  • A partial waiver of tuition and accommodation fees.

Insurance

We offer group insurance that includes life, hospitalisation, and accident insurance, without additional charges.
