Tuition fees are normally paid after arriving in Kazan.
In accordance with the Contract, tuition fees shall be paid as follows:
The University does not accept personal checks or cash as tuition payment.
The Student must present the original documents confirming tuition payment to the University.
Certain contracts may have prices listed in USD or EUR. In this case, contract fees in USD or EUR shall be billed in accordance with Russia’s Central Bank rate on the date on which the contract was signed or otherwise as stipulated by the Contract. Normally, such contracts are signed with foreign organizations that cover the international student’s study expenses and in cases when tuition fees must be paid prior to the student’s arrival in Russia.
Payment for accommodation
Accommodation is not included in tuition fees. The students must individually arrange for accommodation with either the dormitory administration or a host family. Normally, students pay directly to the host in cash.
Foreign students are advised to obtain medical insurance in the Russian Federation. Such insurance covers all medical aid and services, except chronic diseases and orthodontics.
Medical insurance is mandatory for all foreign citizens with paid educational contracts at KFU and must cover the entire study period, starting on the day the student registers at the university. It is expected that medical insurance fees will be paid by the student or the sponsoring organization. The cost of medical insurance is about 2500 RUR per year.
There is no need to bring lots of cash with you. It may be preferable to bring a commonly used credit or ATM/debit card (e.g. Visa, MasterCard, American Express) or traveler’s checks.
