Why study in Romania?
Romania is a European study destination, which offers the advantage of wide-recognition of its diplomas, as part of the European Union and the European Higher Education Area. At the same time, quality study programs, offered in English, Romanian, but also in French, German or Hungarian, are provided by Romanian universities at accessible rates. The social life is also a plus for a country with great geographic diversity, rich history and excellent reputation for cultural and student life.
What is the difference between a university, a polytechnic, national school or academy?
None. In Romania all different types of higher education institutions (universities, institutes, study academies, polytechnics) have same legal status and regulations.
I want to apply to a Romanian university. Can I apply through Study in Romania?
No, you cannot. UEFISCDI the organization currently administrating the StudyinRomania portal is neither an admissions office, nor a higher education institution. We do not handle any study applications. We can only offer you general advice on how to get started if you wish to study in Romania. Study applications should be made to the institutions themselves, through the official admissions routes.
How many students can apply for one spot in a program?
This varies between universities, given their institutional autonomy. Please note that the number of eligible national students for higher education is currently decreasing partially because of demographics, partially because of a very strict final baccalaureate exam (mandatory for Romanian high school graduates), which makes now a perfect moment to study in Romania.
