EQUIP International School of Biblical Training starts at the end of August 2019. Swedish students will meet at Drakudden in Stockholm for a few days before everyone moves to Cyprus. The academic year ends in June 2020. Christmas leave is about 3 weeks and separates the two terms. Exact dates for the academic year are coming soon.
EQUIP tuition is free of charge; however, there is a fee of 1,600 Euro per semester to cover the cost of class trips, insurance and certain course literature. The cost includes food and lodging in connection with the introduction days at Drakudden (the stay at Drakudden is mandatory only for Swedish students) in Stockholm in August 2019.
ACCOMMODATION AND OTHER COSTS
We will arrange for accommodation for all students who attend the Bible School, but students will be responsible for housing costs (about 290 Euro per month) and other living expenses such as food, clothes, and amusements.
You will pay for transportation to and from Cyprus, and book these trips on your own. Travel to Israel and travel to the other country we will visit, are included in the school fee and cover the cost of travel, accommodation and guided tours.
Cyprus is part of the EU, and therefore students who are citizens of an EU country do not need a VISA. You are entitled to settle in another country in the EU. However, when you arrive in Cyprus, you will need to register with the Cypriot Migration Board if your stay is longer than 3 months. The cost of registration is approximately 120 Euro. The administration of EQUIP will help students with this registration so that they are made within 3 months from the date of arrival to Cyprus. If you have citizenship in countries outside the EU, it is important that you check what rules apply to you.
CSN (ONLY APPLICABLE FOR SWEDISH STUDENTS)
The course is CSN eligible for Swedish students, which means that you can apply for both grants and loans to study at EQUIP if you meet the terms of study. Read more about the specific rules that apply to folk high school courses here: www.csn.se
