REGISTRATION (MATRÍCULA ) AND PAYMENT OF THE FEES
As part of the online application, students are asked to choose courses they might be interested in while studying at the University of Burgos. However, that is neither a definitive Learning Agreement nor a "real" Registration as they enrol on arrival. Detailed information on registration procedures and enrolment appointments will be fully provided to international students during the mandatory orientation sessions.
Please bear in mind that the University of Burgos cannot fully guarantee that students can finally register for the subjects they listed on the on-line application (due to timetable changes or unexpected academic rearrangements). It is strongly advisable to take alternatives into account in case some first-chosen-options courses are not available.
Visiting students will receive a registration confirmation copy (resguardo de matrícula ) with the list of final courses and the fees. This document is not valid unless it bears the stamp of the bank proving that you have paid for tuition and administration fees. After you pay in cash, the bank will stamp all 3 copies of the form. You must bring one stamped copy back to the Intenational Office. If you fail to do do, your registration will be cancelled. To estimate aproximately the cost of your registration as a visiting student, please check public tuition fees at the University of Burgos.
Academic and adminitrative fees for international visiting students are as follows (approved by the Social Council, May 6th 2013):
- Administrative fees ....................................70 €
- Credit Price .................................. 1.5 times the public price
