UR tuition fees

Tuition fees at UR for local citizens starts from 1 USD per year. For international students, the cost of study differs — from 5,000 USD. Thanks to financial support programs, students have the opportunity to fully or partially cover the cost of education. On the official website of the university, you will find all the relevant information about tuition fees and 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 UR 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. There is a library on the grounds of the university. There are collected scientific works of graduates and teachers of the university, as well as fiction. UR regularly accepts students for international exchange programs, providing both local and international students with the opportunity to come into contact with different cultures and gain unique experience.

What to do after graduation
If you want to stay in Colombia after graduation, one of your options is to apply for a work visa. To do this, you need to get an offer from an employer. UR graduates find jobs quickly, partly because the university has a good reputation among employers according to the QS World University Rankings.
