What’s covered

Adobe’s Learning Fund covers up to 47 500 lei for 2024 for undergraduate, graduate, PhD, and MBA degree programmes, as well as certain certifications, through accredited institutions.

You’ll receive reimbursement for the cost of tuition, course fees, certification fees, and required books specific to your approved course work. You may request reimbursement of the learning opportunity once you have completed the course with a passing grade, successful completion, or the local country equivalent. You must successfully pass the certification exam to be reimbursed. Adobe will pay 100% of these costs up to the maximum benefit allowed, less appropriate taxes as applicable.

You will not receive reimbursement for university- or student-associated costs and fees. Examples include library fees, lab fees, CLEP, facility fees, technology fees, calculators, identification cards, student health fees, parking, late fees, prepayment fees, art supplies, software, and preliminary or admission tests, such as the GMAT or LSAT.

Adobe Certified Expert-related expenses are not eligible for reimbursement under this benefit.
