  1. Hello,I am from Bosnia and Herzegovina. My name is Ena and I would love to get a scoolarship in Abu Dhabi, but I cannot find the aplication on this website.

  2. Hello, I was looking to apply for this scholarship but on its site I read that the scholarship is only about one year Master studies, and nothing for graduate/undergrad, but here it says it is Bachelor.. Any suggestions?

  3. Hello,
    I would like to know do they offer the full scholarships for students who want to transfer from the US universities. So if they do, shall they acknowledge my grades from all subjects, because I study Finance at the State university of New York, and I'm the second year student. Also about the TOEFL score. Because I'm an international student from Bosnia, and I would like to know do I have to take TOEFL, because I needed to have only 79 to study Finance at SUNY.


    1. Dear Aldin,

      regarding the possibility to transfer, you would have to address that question to the Institute itself. In the FAQ's it is stated that "eligible applicants to Masdar Institute graduate programs must have an undergraduate degree in Engineering, IT, or Science related field to apply for any of our MSc programs. We do not run any Business programs at all".
