UDCA tuition fees
As in many other universities in the country, the academic calendar at UDCA is divided into two semesters. But for convenience, tuition fees are calculated per year. Tuition fees here are different for locals and foreigners. For locals, it starts from 1 USD, and for foreigners — a minimum of 5,000 USD. The educational institution helps with tuition fees through financial support programs. They are available to local and international students. 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 suburban campus of UDCA combines features of an urban and rural campus. It is located outside the big city, which allows you to focus on your studies. However, it is also not too far, opening up access to more types of recreation, both outdoors and in the city (theaters, museums, restaurants). The university has a functioning library. In addition to educational materials in various scientific areas, it contains a collection of classical and contemporary literature. Not only locals study at UDCA, but also students from other countries. This is a unique opportunity to get in touch with the culture of other countries, meet representatives of different nationalities and make friends around the world.
