  • The scheme normally includes courses at Master’s and Ph.D. level in addition to certain professional/Bachelor’s degrees.

  • Minimum two years of higher education from their home country
  • Some exceptions apply for certain professional educational courses at Bachelor’s level.
  • Most of the study programmes offered under the Quota Scheme are taught in English.
