Tuition fees

The tuition fees at the Centro Universitario Villanueva Madrid amount to approx. 2,300€. You pay these directly to the host university.

Cost of living

approx. 600 € plus travel costs

A slightly more expensive room in a more central location could be cheaper than one outside, considering the travel costs. Especially at the beginning of your stay there may be additional costs (e.g. deposit, tickets, etc.). Some discounts are available with the International Student Card: www.isic.de.


Learning Agreement (LA)

Along with your application, you submit a Learning Agreement (LA) on which you enter courses or modules amounting to at least 20 ECTS credits that you would like to take. In Europe, the number and credit value of the courses varies, so make sure you get precise information.  The International Office and the Dean's Office will confirm your selection and ask for corrections if necessary. The LA is the basis for the recognition of courses at the EBC University and is therefore binding.

The average of your achievements is converted according to the modified Bavarian formula. 20 ECTS are hereby recognised and are included in the overall grade of your studies.
