NUR tuition fees

As in many other universities in the country, the academic calendar at NUR is divided into two semesters. But for convenience, tuition fees are calculated per year.

The university has several financial aid programs that help students cover part of the cost of education. The cost of education and the availability of scholarships can be checked on the official website.

In addition to the cost of education, it is necessary to pay attention to additional costs: accommodation, transportation, study materials, meals and personal expenses.
