Ask your employer for financial support

Most of our students are financially supported by their employer. An employer can pay the tuition fee and deduct this investment in your education from your gross salary. In this way your fiscal salary decreases and you will pay less income tax. For your employer this is cost neutral while your benefit may go up to almost 50% of the tuition fee.
