Free mover


The international student who is arranging his/her studies on his/her own initiative is called a non-degree FREE MOVER and in this case he/she has to pay tuition fee. Tuition fee is calculated according to number of ECTS credits selected for studies at MRU by the Free- mover. The charge for one ECTS credit depends on the cycle of studies (Bachelor or Master), the field of studies and it is different for EU citizens and non-EU citizens. The tuition fee for 1 ECTS credit for EU citizens is from 22 Eur to 38 Eur; for non- EU citizens is from 36 Eur to 53 Eur. The required number of credits per semester for a free mover is between 25 to 30 ECTS credits.
