Student financing for Master's students

Most NIT students in the Master's program in Technology Management pay the tuition fees themselves. Many students complete the Master's program alongside a job or doctorate and receive an individual grant from their employer.

Support from your employer

If you are planning to study at NIT alongside your career, we recommend that you talk to your employer about your plans. Many employers welcome further training of their employees, who then offer new insights and competencies to the company. For this reason, numerous companies support their employees in financing further training.

Special funding programs: Work & Study Scholarships

Industrial scholarships for Double Master’s students

Particularly outstanding applicants who are interested in the Double Master in Technology Management can apply for a scholarship. Some of the NIT’s partner companies offer industrial scholarships and, after an intensive selection process, pay the tuition fees for students studying for a double master's degree.

Application for a scholarship from renowned partner companies

These include, for example, Procter & Gamble, NXP or ArcelorMittal. If you would like to apply for one, please find out about the company's requirements.

A full scholarship covers all tuition fees for studying at NIT, including language courses. Administrative fees (TUHH semester enrollment fee + NIT administrative fee) are not included in the scholarship and have to be covered by the student (2x300€ per semester). Applications must be submitted directly to the NIT as part of the letter of motivation.


ADDITIONAL SCHOLARSHIP OPTIONS

Furthermore, we encourage you to look into applying for individual scholarships besides the industrial tuition scholarships, offered directly through the NIT. Various foundations offer grants to talented students—in your home country as well as in Germany. Have a look at the DAAD scholarship database and the institutions listed below.

For further scholarships to cover personal living expenses you may also contact:
Your local office of the DAAD, The German embassy, the Goethe Institute in your country, or any other German funding institution.

GERMAN ACADEMIC EXCHANGE SERVICE

The NIT in cooperation with the DAAD (German Academic Exchange Service) may award a limited number of Cost of Living Allowances to outstanding international students without industrial tuition scholarships or other scholarships towards their cost of living. Such an allowance covers 250€ per month and is granted for one year.

CLAUSSEN SIMON FOUNDATION

We would like to highlight the close relationship between the NIT and the Claussen Simon Foundation. The foundation awards scholarships to talented young students with an outstanding academic performance who wish to devote themselves with great commitment to their upcoming master’s program. The scholarships are awarded for studies of all disciplines at German universities.

SCHOTSTEK

Schotstek is concerned with equal opportunities, the realization of all potentials, connecting top immigrant offspring with companies, and the collaborative growth of an urban society. It encourages ambitious young migrants to seek opportunity. The Schotstek Scholarship offers scholarship holders personal access to persons, institutions, and events that might otherwise remain closed off.

HEMSHORN FOUNDATION

The Hemshorn Foundation awards scholarships to young people with a Christian background to help them develop their full potential.
