FAQ

What if changes within my job make it impossible for me to study?

You may study at a slower pace.
Please contact us and together we can come up with an individualised curriculum for a specific period of time.

What if I need to interrupt my studies due to family reasons?

You have the option of applying for a semester off. If you suspend your studies for an entire semester, no tuition fees will be charged.

How much does the programme cost per semester?

There are tuition fees of €1,450 per semester plus the student services fee.

This includes the costs for participation in all on-campus seminars, e-learning units and supervision by the lecturers.

What other costs do I need to be aware of, in addition to the tuition fees?

  • Costs for travel to HNU
  • Possibly accommodation costs, depending on the distance to your place of residence
  • Costs for printing and copying
  • Costs for books, as necessary

What happens if I don’t pass an exam?

You may repeat every exam.

Are there any study groups?

Yes, the programme is designed for learning in groups.

An internet platform and multimedia clubrooms are available for group work at HNU. The group structure has proven to be very effective and participants also make individual arrangements for studying in groups.

Am I required to inform my employer?

We strongly recommend making an arrangement with your employer, as you will need the understanding of your superiors during your studies. You may also be striving toward a future management position with your current employer.

Does the employer cover the cost of the programme?

Contact your employer. Some employers support their employees, generally by covering the tuition fees and/or awarding time off for on-campus seminars.

What should I do when I have holidays?

Holidays are necessary. We would, however, ask that you don’t plan your holidays during the on-campus weeks, as this would require you to catch up on large amounts of material. You are required to attend 80% of the on-campus seminars. Please coordinate your holidays with your study group. 

What can I do if I have a question about a specific task?

Make use of the knowledge and support within your group and start by asking there. Questions directed to professors will also be answered in a timely fashion.

What happens if I exceed the standard duration of studies?

If you exceed the standard duration of studies, you will only be charged administrative fees in the amount of 250 euros, plus the student services fee.
