Fees & Funding

Tuition Fees

Girne American University stands as a global educational hub, offering degree programs in fields like dentistry, business management, tourism and hotel management, software engineering, pharmacy, political science, public management, and law, all taught in English.

In a short span, the university has garnered international acclaim for its commitment to academic excellence and enriching student experiences. While tuition is a standard requirement in private institutions, Girne American University distinguishes itself as one of the most cost-effective private universities in the Mediterranean, without compromising on the quality of education or campus vibrancy.

Beyond its reasonable tuition rates, Girne American University extends scholarships and financial incentives to international students enrolled in its degree programs.

However, newcomers should be aware of additional costs, encompassing application, registration, and student activity fees, all due at the onset of the academic year.

For the convenience of its global student body, the university accepts tuition payments in U.S. dollars, with the necessary account details shared during the application phase.

It's worth noting that the annual tuition encompasses miscellaneous charges like registration fees and a 5% VAT.
