Study in Belarus for international students

Belarus has been offering university education to international students for many years, dating to the Soviet era. Thousands of international students currently study in Belarus, and many more have already gone through the Belarus university education system. They are already practicing as professionals in different fields, from medicine to business / administration, scientific research, engineering and many other diverse fields of human endeavour.

Study in Belarus For International Students

Study In Belarus Pros & Cons

One of the main high-points of university education in Belarus is that it still retains the high educational standards cultivated since centuries ago and very strict with regard to student laxity. There is no room for non-serious students, but total support and guidance for any student that is ready to put in the required effort.

Also equally important is that an issued university admission / invitation letter is almost a guarantee for visa for deserving candidates. As long as the candidate has a genuine invitation letter, and satisfies the Embassy requirements, the candidate is most likely to be issued a visa. In some countries where the country does not maintain a diplomatic mission, the university invitation is enough traveling instrument, and the visa is issued on point of arrival.

The major downside is that English language courses are currently as diversified as in Ukraine. Although some medical and Engineering courses are available in English language, the majority of the courses are only available for study in Russian language. This will require a one year language preparatory program.

PhD. Programs:

PhD. Programs are handled on individual case basis. Candidates will first have to be attached to a supervising Professor, and only after that a university admission can be processed. So, the first step is to get the consent and acceptance of a supervising Professor. It is, therefore, a bit more complex and not like regular entry-program admission. Candidates for a doctorate program should send us an email via our support desk. The cost for processing PhD admissions starts from $500.00

University Enrollment Requirements Upon Arrival

Below are the documents required for university registration upon arrival to Belarus:

  1. Original International Passport
  2. Notarized translation of the international passport to Russian language
  3. Original High / Secondary School result(s)
  4. Notarized translation of the high / secondary school result to Russian language
  5. Original Birth certificate or court affidavit
  6. Notarized translation of the birth certificate or court affidavit to Russian language
  7. Medical test indicating the absence of HIV / AIDS, Tuberculosis and Hepatitis
  8. Ten (10) passport photographs, size: 3х4 см

Applicable Fees

Admission Processing Cost (APC)

This is the cost of processing the university invitation letter, and courier delivery.

  • Invitation Processing Cost + Courier Delivery: $300.00

Post-arrival Payments (PaP)

This consists of all the applicable payments due for payment upon arrival to Belarus. They are as follows:

  • Tuition (T): this is the annual tuition for the selected course.
  • Accommodation Cost (AC): this is the cost of standard university hostel accommodation.
  • Arrival & University Registration Logistics (AURL): this is an aggregate of all other applicable post-arrival payments for completing the student’s university registration process, excluding tuition and accommodation cost. The total amount is $250.00 and consists of the following payments:
    1. Airport Reception & Transfer To University: $50
    2. University Registration & Enrollment: $200

Total AURL = $250.00


Calculation for the total “Post-arrival Payment (PaP)”
= T + AC + AURL

Example Calculation :
Course: “Banking”, “ref. #: 12”

“PaP”amount due for payment upon arrival will be: $2800 + $500 + $250 = $3550 (for the first year).

Payment For subsequent years (Year 2 to final year):
Annual payment will be: T + AC + AR [$50 – Annual Registrations (AR)]

$2800 + $500 + $50 = $3350.00 (from second year to final year).


Use the same approach to perform the calculation for your chosen course. This is the only amount due for payment upon arrival, and nothing more. This amount is captured in the admission contract.
