A master’s degree gives students an opportunity to continue their personal development and to advance their careers by building on their specialisation. The International Academic Scholarship will be granted to foreign students enrolled in a master’s degree programme at the Lucerne University of Applied Sciences and Arts as of the 2019 autumn semester, on the basis of their academic performance.
