1. Pre-Enrolment:

No payment is required. The payment will only be made upon Enrolment when the course has been confirmed to run.

  1. Tuition Fees

BabeliUM has two types of tuition fees for its courses, the internal and the external tuition fee.

Internal tuition fee: University of Minho’s students, teaching and non-teaching staff; AAEUM (Alumni Association of the University of Minho) members; Casa do Professor members; International Iberian Nanotechnology Laboratory (INL) researchers; unemployed persons (properly demonstrated); schools belonging to the APPEAL network (teachers, and students above 16 / minors only with authorisation from their parents or guardians); AFUM (Staff Association) members and respective descendants; students enrolled in the preparation course for Higher Education Attendance (over 23 years old). To be entitled to this tuition fee, the interested party should, when filling their application form, enclose the respective documents of proof.

  1. Discounts:

The prices offered by BabeliUM are very low and are destined to cover its running costs. They also allow for the learning of less taught languages and the launch of specialised training courses.

Therefore, we cannot offer any discounts apart from the tuition fees defined as “internal”. We ask all students and general public for their understanding.

BabeliUM may extend the access to the “internal” tuition fees by establishing cooperation protocols, and by temporarily establishing special campaigns.
