As in many other universities in the country, the academic calendar at UNIANDES is divided into two semesters. But for convenience, tuition fees are calculated per year. One year of studying at UNIANDES will cost local citizens a minimum of 3 USD. For foreigners, the tuition fee is different — from 9,000 USD per year. The educational institution helps students financially with the help of scholarships and financial aid. They are available to local and international students. Check the university website for up-to-date information on prices and available scholarships.
When choosing an educational institution, it is necessary to take into account additional costs: accommodation, transportation, educational materials, meals and personal expenses.
The campus of UNIANDES is located in Bogota. This is a fairly large city that opens up many opportunities for students: from cafes, restaurants and other entertainment to internships at large companies. But an urban campus can also be a disadvantage, because big city life distracts some students from their studies. The educational institution has its own library. Here, students do their homework or just have a good time reading an interesting book. Foreigners who come to UNIANDES through exchange programs study and live with local students. Thus, the university promotes intercultural exchange and the establishment of interethnic relations.
What to do after graduation
There are several options to stay in the country after graduation. One of them is to get an offer from an employer and apply for a work visa. Read more about this on the embassy website. UNIANDES graduates find jobs quickly, partly because the university has a good reputation among employers according to the QS World University Rankings.
