If you already have university credits from another institution, you may be able to transfer some of the credits toward a bachelor’s degree program at EU Business School. These credits may allow you to begin your studies at EU at a more advanced stage within the program.

To apply for credit transfer, you will need to provide detailed course descriptions (in English) of any business-related courses you have previously completed. These should be sent with your application form and transcripts.

The following general rules apply to credit transfers at EU:

  • Only credits necessary for the completion of a bachelor’s degree at EU will be transferred. EU does not accept transfer credits toward its Master or MBA programs.
  • Only credits from courses passed with a minimum grade of C (2.0) will be transferred.
  • Only credits from courses completed within 10 years prior to the date of entry to EU will be transferred.

Credit transfers are considered on an individual basis. For further information on credit transfers please do not hesitate to contact the admissions department.

How much will I have to pay for tuition?

Please visit the bachelor's fees section on our website. 

I have been accepted to EU Business School. What should I do next?

Pay the advanced tuition payment and confirm your intention to attend by paying the first installment of the program. Upon receipt, we will send confirmation of your enrollment at EU.

How do I pay tuition fees?

Students can pay their tuition fees via bank transfer, check or credit card. Once we have received the complete application package, the admissions department will send you information about tuition fee payments.

I have paid my advanced tuition payment. What should I do next?

Student visas are necessary for Non-European Union citizens. On receipt of the final acceptance letter from EU, non-European Union applicants should apply for a student visa at the nearest embassy or consulate of the country where they wish to study. Please allow enough time to process your visa. We advise non-EU applicants to apply at least three months before the beginning of the academic semester. The admissions department will contact you to offer help with your student visa and to answer any other questions that you might have.

For European Union and non-European Union applicants, the tuition fee payment must be made before the start of the academic semester.

How do I find out about accommodation?

Please contact the admissions department of your chosen campus for housing advice.

Health insurance is mandatory in most European countries. Students are requested to obtain health insurance themselves. Please do not hesitate to contact EU if you need health insurance service provider or any assistance.

I have paid my fees and have received a visa. What happens next?

The academic department will email you class timetables before the beginning of the academic semester.
