Tuition and Fees

Intercultural Open University Foundation attempts to assist learners as much as possible to meet the Foundations modest tuition fees by adapting the fees to the individual needs of the learners.   Tuition fee payments can be made in three installments.  The Board of Governors, President, and staff are all dedicated to making affordable education possible for learners regardless of their financial situation. Our scholarship programs are centered around and directed toward learners that are active and involved in social change programs.

PhD Program

Tuition fees are Euro 10,000 for the partnership (Universidad Azteca and Universidad Central de Nicaragua) PhD Programs, exclusive handbooks, readers and literature, but inclusive study guidance, examinations and residential courses. (Payment of the full amount at the start of the study allows the student a discount of Euro 500 because of less administration costs.)

Post-PhD Program

Tuition fees are Euro 6,000 for the one/two year post graduate PhD programs.  In addition learners will be required to be involved in an social change/social activism program.

Masters Degree Program

Tuition fees are Euro 8,000 for the two-year Masters Degree Program partnership (Universidad Azteca and Universidad Central de Nicaragua).  Learners from developing countries tuition fees are Euro 6,000.
