What will it cost?
Unfortunately, going on an exchange programme will cost you more money than staying in St. Johns. Under the normal protocols for exchange programmes, you pay your tuition and fees here, registering under a special block number in the slot book, and take courses at the host university, and transfer the credits back to MUN. Anyone going on an exchange must thus figure on paying tuition and fees for a full course load. In addition, you will have to cover the costs of travel, visa (if necessary), any supplementary insurance, food and housing, books, and entertainment.
If this sounds grim, it is, but there is some good news:
Thus, if you do go on exchange, your total cost, including tuition and fees will be $6000-$7000 per semester. If you subtract costs you pay anyway, the additional costs is less probably about $2000-$3000 depending on how much you pay for food and housing. Estimated 2000-2001 costs for exchanges to Ireland, the Netherlands, and Sweden are listed below:
