Hamburg University of Applied Sciences (or, HAW Hamburg) awards scholarships to its academically strong international students studying both its Bachelor degree programmes and Master degree programmes. The good news is that the City of Hamburg subsidises degree programmes at Hamburg universities, so the school does not charge tuition fees for national and international students except for professional Master’s programmes.
