Grants and aid
Enrolments constitute the income that allows the funding of all of the courses and services on offer at the school. However, the cost of enrolment on the design degree course may be subject to aid both in terms of the public price and of the private price of the credit.
The price of enrolment on the design degree course corresponds to the costs of the teaching and services that EINA offers as a private non profit-making foundation. The price of each credit is broken down into public price (established by the decree that every year is published in the DOG, body regulating the price of academic services to the public universities of Catalonia and the Open University of Catalonia) and private price.
Aware that difficulties may arise both in admission to courses and in continuing on them, the EINA Foundation offers a system of grants and aid independently of the grants, aid or discounts awarded by the state. Consequently, with regard to the private price of the enrolment, the school offers the following grants, aid and exemptions:
Grants for new-access students. Grants of 50% of the cost of the course, intended for students wanting to learn at EINA, who cannot meet the cost but who can demonstrate vocation and excellence through the transcript of secondary schooling and research work. This grant is extended over the four years.
Course continuance grants. Grants of up to 25% of the cost of enrolment for students enrolled at EINA who, at a certain time due to unexpected changes to family circumstances, and having demonstrated an effort in their studies, can no longer meet enrolments. These grants seek to ensure that no EINA student profitably following their course has to drop out for financial reasons.
Services grants. Grants are periodically awarded for students that represent a discount on enrolments for the provision of assistance services for various tasks that are carried out at the school outside the class timetable. These grants are called publicly for all students at the school and their value is subject to the devotion and length specified in each call.
- Distinctions. The awarding of a distinction in a subject means free enrolment in the following academic year, on the same degree course and for the same value of credits.
With regard to the public price of enrolment, The aforementioned Decree stipulates the surcharges and the exemptions that have to be applied on top of the public price. At the same time, students of EINA can also benefit from the scholarships of general scheme and mobility of the Ministry of Education, Culture and Sports.
