Costs Breakdown, 2016

Below are the estimated annual expenses per student. Tuition might rise in the future, and the exchange rate is variable—we will keep capital reserves in sufficient amounts to be able to deal with such potential changes. Students will likely grow out of and/or wear out clothing annually, and so clothing is considered an annual cost.
