Study in ROMANIA

The StudyinRomania platform is administered by the Executive Agency for Higher Education, Research, Development and Innovation Funding (UEFISCDI).

StudyinRomania was developed within the framework of the "Internationalisation, equity and institutional management for a quality higher education" (IEMU) project. The portal aims to offer a high quality data base with the existing educational offer of Romanian universities.

New, updated modules, providing a better adaptation of the platform to current technologies and, implicitly, attracting new students, have been developed by UEFISCDI, together with the Ministry of Education (ME), through the project Quality in higher education: internationalization and databases to enhance the Romanian education system (POCU-INTL) between 2018 and 2022, co-financed by the European Social Fund through the Operational Program “Human Capital” (POCU).

The project aims to develop and implement systemic measures at tertiary education level, leading to an increased quality of the overall higher education system and universities better prepared for labor market requirements and international standards.

The Executive Agency for Higher Education, Research, Development and Innovation Funding is a public institution with legal personality subordinated to the Ministry of Education, with responsibilities in higher education, scientific research, development and innovation. UEFISCDI has coordinated a large number of projects on these topics with national and European funding, bringing together the expertise of numerous national and international experts. Due to the nature of UEFISCDI’s mission, the institution established a strong functional relationship with the Romanian universities.

NOTHING IS FAR WHEN ONE WANTS TO GET THERE.

7 REASONS TO CHOOSE ROMANIA FOR STUDYING

While probably the most known thing about Romania is the legend of Dracula, Romania is much more than that.

Choose your program, plan your trip, Romania is ready for you!

Romania is a great place for you to study, diplomas are recognised all over Europe and beyond. In addition, the Diploma Supplement (DS) issued automatically with your graduation diploma is bilingual and thus ensures transparency of learning outcomes and improves employability. Here are some more...

1. You have a solid university degree recognised all around Europe and beyond. Romanian Higher Education is known for its rich academic heritage.

2. World's fastest Internet - Ranked 3rd place in the world, Romania has ultra fast internet connectivity.

3. Study in English, French, German, Romanian or Hungarian. Romania has a wide choice of university programs.

4. Low tuition fees and living expenses – While maintaining our academic standards, we have some of the lowest tuition and living costs in the European Union.

5. Cultural life – Bucharest offers more than 40 museums and Romania has the second-largest outdoor museum in the world, Astra Museum in Sibiu.

6. Work opportunities and quality of life - There are a number of possibilities to work as a student: you can apply directly to vacant positions published online.

7. A great place to travel – The home of seven UNESCO world heritage sites, Romania is a country of many facets.

We'll start with this for obvious reasons - convenience. If you’re thinking of going from one part of the country to another, for example from Bucharest to Cluj-Napoca, Timisoara, Oradea, Suceava or Iasi, you should consider catching an internal flight.

Why? Because the 450 km between Bucharest and Cluj-Napoca which takes about 6-7h by car or 8-10h by train takes only 40 minutes by plane - and for a very affordable price. That's why it's the best way of travelling longer distances in Romania.

There are 3 low-cost companies (WizzAir, RyanAir and BlueAir) and the national airline Tarom that operate internal flights in Romania connecting major cities around the country.

- the most popular routes such as Bucharest to Cluj-Napoca or Timisoara even have 3-4 flights each day with different companies - so be sure to check all of them. Ticket prices start from €10 (per way) and can go up to 50-70€ if you buy them 2-3 weeks in advance and some companies like BlueAir give let you check-in 1 piece of luggage for free!

So if you're short on time and want to see as much of Romania without the stress and hassle of extra-planning, it’s worth saving time and energy and looking at internal flights. It's a cheaper option than renting a car and definitely much faster than taking the train or bus for long-distances.

Student visa requirements in ROMANIA

Once you get your letter of acceptance from the Ministry of education, youth and sport, you have to apply for Romanian student visa to your closest Romanian Diplomatic Missions (embassy or consulate). Students arriving from the EU countries, the European Economic Area, as well as from Canada, Croatia, Japan, Moldova, South Korea, Switzerland, USA and Serbia do not need visa to enter in Romania.

All other international students are required to apply for a Romanian student visa prior to arrival. Student visas may take from two days to 2 months to process and one can only apply for a student visa once the Ministry of Education in Romania has issued the letter of acceptance to study.

Cost of living in ROMANIA

Romania is one of the least-expensive countries in the EU. It has prices for every pocket.

General information on Romanian visas and conditions of traveling to Romania

A visa is a document that enables the holder to report to any Romanian border checkpoint and to require either transit through or a short stay on the Romanian territory. The border checkpoint officers will demand proof that the general conditions of entry and stay on the Romanian territory are met as provided by law. Should those conditions not be met, aliens will not be allowed to enter the Romanian territory, although they might have previously obtained a Romanian visa.

According to the provisions of GO 194/2002 concerning the regime of aliens in Romania, republished as subsequently amended, the Romanian visa is granted by Romanian diplomatic and consular missions abroad.

Types of visas granted and issued by the Romanian state:

1. The airport transit visa (marked A) allows the access into and stay in the international area of an airport until boarding the plane to the country of destination;
2. The transit visa (marked B) allows access on the territory of Romania, for the purpose of transit, for a duration of at the most 5 days;
3. The short-stay visa (marked C) allows entry and a short stay of aliens on the territory of Romania for no more than 90 days within an interval of maximum 6 months from the date of entry (in the case of a multiple-entry visa , the duration of the stay will be taken into account from the date of the first entry). The Romanian short-stay visa is granted for the following purposes: official government mission, tourism, business, private visit, transportation, participation in sports activities, as well as cultural, scientific or academic events. In the case of a holder of a short-stay visa, the stay right cannot be extended.

The right to stay in this case is of 90 days; however, this type of visa allows for its prolongation following an official request addressed to the Romanian Office for Immigration which is part of the Romanian Ministry of Administration and Interior. The requests for the extension of the right of stay must be personally submitted by the applicants, at the local branch-offices of the Romanian Office for Immigration closest to their place of residence, at least 30 days before expiry of the stay right granted by the Visa.

Short-stay and transit visas can be exceptionally granted by border checkpoint officers, at the Romanian border checkpoints, according to the provisions of Council Regulation (EC) 810/2009 of the European Parliament and Council of 13 July 2009 on the issue of establishing a Community Code of Visas (the Visa Code) and of Regulation (EC) no. 562/2006 of the European Parliament and of the Council, establishing a Community Code on the rules governing the free movement of persons across borders (Schengen Borders Code) published in the Official Journal of the European Union L / 105 of 13 April 2006.

The right of stay on the territory of Romania, granted to aliens under a short-stay visa, cannot be extended. The purpose of the trip to Romania undertaken by aliens on the basis of a short-stay visa cannot be altered during their stay on the territory of Romania.

The long-stay visa shall only be granted with the approval of the Ministry of Administration and Interior - the Romanian Office for Immigration.

Aliens having entered the territory of Romania with a long-stay visa may apply for the extension of the right of temporary residence and obtain a residence permit. The request filed in this respect must be addressed to the Romanian Office for Immigration within the Romanian Ministry of Administration and Interior.
