A distance learning university is more cost efficient, and therefore, the BIU tuition is highly affordable. Students will save up many times what they might spend if pursuing the same adult degree program from a traditional university.
BIU distance learning degree program’s tuition fee is determined by the number academic credits required. The credits required, and thus the tuition, may change depending on any other credits transferred from previous education. For this reason, we can not estimate accurately the total tuition fee of any personalized degree program without assessing a complete application for admission.
BIU distance learning degree program’s tuition fee may range from 3.510 Euros (4.420 US$) to 9.360 Euros (12.240 US$) depending on the degree level and program required credits.
If you wish to try a distance learning university experience, we recommend that you select among the hundreds of continuing education courses that we offer with a reduced fee of 500 Euros (700US$). More info...
