Belarus is a one-of-kind, beautiful country with a historical past and unique nature. It lies at the crossroads where the most important trans-European railroads and motorways converge, as well as oil and gas pipelines, waterways and air routes connecting Europe and Asia. Belarus is a nation of the educated: more than half of its residents have graduated from higher education institutions.
The annual costs for students vary across the institutions and the chosen fields of education. Annual tuition fees for preparatory departments of higher education institutions start at 1,600 USD per year for students arriving on an individual basis; for students applying within the framework of international or inter-university agreements, the fee is set by the agreements. Tuition fees for the first cycle of higher education vary depending on the complexity of the chosen specialty and the term of study. Full-time degrees cost 2,500 USD per year or more, and part-time degrees cost 1,400 USD per year or more. Tuition fees for the second level of higher education vary depending on the complexity of the chosen specialty and the term of study. Yearly fees start at 2,500 USD.
