Studying at CBU involves different costs, namely the tuition fee, costs for study materials and other living costs. There are several options allowing to decrease costs lower.

Basic and Advanced Courses Tuition Fees

The tuition of separate courses depend on the course itself, its length and size of group. Please contact us with specific demand and we will be happy to provide an offer.

Master programme

The tuition of the master degree program also varies depending on country where the program is taught, lecturers and when a student starts studying (February/ September). Please contact us for more detailed information.

Tuition fee payment options

There are various options available to  you to pay your tuition fee.
We provide payment options using bank transfer in EUR, USD or CZK, PayPal credit card payment and Western Union. While Bank transfer is one of the easiest, it is cheap within Europe and some Asian countries. Western Union is recommended only for Basic and Advanced courses payments while it is easiest and for smaller amounts the cheapest compared to the other options. PayPal credit card payment is most expensive due to fees related to money transfer and currency conversion. But it is fast and convenient.
