Scholarships & funding
ICN reserves a few scholarships for students in financial need. ICN does have a social commission which, subject to financial resources, can exempt part of the tuition fees.
These aids are intended for all ICN students combined (and therefore not specifically for international students). It is a partial scholarship and would only cover part of the tuition fee.
In this case, the information can be found on the institute's website.
