In 2019-20, students will pay an extra 1000€ to contribute to the expenses of the overseas activities in Senegal and Taiwan.

(This means the study cost is 8000€ for the 1st year, and 2500€ for the 2nd year)

PARTS has a budget for scholarships, but currently it is not clear yet how much, since this depends on a pending application. In any case, it is mandatory that any student starts with searching financial support at other funds and institutions, before they can eventually apply for a scholarship in PARTS. One must start this search before the audition!
