Tuition Fees and Discounts
IBC-M operates as a non-profit educational foundation so students are required to pay tuition fees in order to contribute to the running costs of the college. We aim to be inclusive to students from all socio-economic backgrounds, so there are reductions available thanks to the support of our donors.
