Slovak language courses for university admission

When it comes to learning a language in order to save money, let's compare the cost of studying for a Bachelor's degree in English over several years and the cost of intensive Slovak language tuition at iCan School for 10 months. After that, you will be able to enrol for free education in Slovak.

The cost of a bachelor's degree in English is on average about 5,500 euros per year. For 4 years of study, you will pay 22,000 euros. While the cost of an intensive Slovak language course is 4,000 euros for 10 months.

So the difference in cost and your direct benefit is 22,000- 4,000 = 18,000.

In other words, you will spend only 4,000 euros for a Slovak language course at iCan School instead of 22,000 euros for an English course. This is your savings simply by choosing an intensive Slovak language course.
