Apart from the variable transportation costs students incur when travelling to and from their home country, the following 2 cost estimates need to be considered for participating in BME's third year:
- the cost of living near the third-year partner institution
- the yearly tuition fee of the third-year partner institution
Estimates of the cost of living near CU vary with the specific student's lifestyle, but a typical figure is between £ 500 an £ 750 per month.
CU's yearly tuition fee for academic year 2018-2019 is around £ 9.250 (5% early payment discount if paid before induction week). This online overview has more specifics on tuition.
