AFTER RECEIVING THE BTH SCHOLARSHIP
How is the scholarship paid out?
The scholarship is awarded as tuition reduction. E.g. if you are awarded a 50% scholarship, you will only have to pay 50 % of your tuition fee.
When is the scholarship paid out?
Since the tuition fee must be paid in advance of each term, the tuition reduction will be calculated for each instalment. The requisition for the remaining tuition fee is issued before the start of your next term.
How do I pay my tuition fee/remainder of my tuition fee?
You will find information on how to pay your tuition fee if you log in to your BTH tuition fee account.
Who can pay my tuition fee/remainder of my tuition fee?
Anyone can pay your tuition fee for you – a family member, a friend, a sponsor. The important thing to remember is that they need to include your verification number on the payment so we know who the payment concerns. You find the verification number at your BTH tuition fee account.
How do you know I have paid my tuition fee?
Once our financial department has received payment information from our bank we cross-check your verification number on your payment. Your payment will then be registered for you to see in your BTH tuition fee account.
