UFR tuition fees
As in many other universities in the country, the academic calendar at UFR is divided into two semesters. But for convenience, tuition fees are calculated per year. Students of UFR pay from 1,000 USD per year for French programs (B2 level). English programs are about twice as expensive. The educational institution helps with tuition fees through financial support programs. They are available to local and international students. For up-to-date information on scholarships and the cost of education for each program, check the official website of the educational institution.
Accommodation, transportation, study materials, meals and personal expenses are all things to consider before applying to university.

The city campus of UFR provides students with countless opportunities for work and recreation — from sitting in a coffee shop with a laptop to internships at large companies. Tours has a well developed entertainment infrastructure, but the rhythm of the big city can be distracting for some students. The university has a functioning library. In addition to educational materials in various scientific areas, it contains a collection of classical and contemporary literature. UFR accepts students for international exchange programs. This is a great opportunity to gain experience in intercultural communication for both international and local students.
