Join our free programming fundamentals course and keep learning. Nail the entrance exam to our Alpha program and, yes, keep coding under the mentorship of our experienced trainers. Pretty soon, you’ll know the answer and don’t worry - if you decide that programming isn’t your cup of tea, you can drop out with no consequences up to 5 weeks of program start.
The standard tuition fee for Telerik Academy Alpha C# is BGN 5,500. You can either pay it in full upfront or in monthly installments of BGN 248* via a bank loan (based on a 24-month repayment schedule).
If you opt to pay with a bank loan, we are giving you a grace period of up to 6 months after graduation, during which you can focus on finding a job and not worry about any tuition re-payments.
If after graduation you are employed by one of our partners, you will get a 25% discount, and thus pay BGN 185*/month (based on a 24-month repayment schedule). If you’ve opted to pay your tuition upfront (BGN 5,500), should you start with a partner, you will get BGN 1,400 back.
We continue to offer students the option to pay for their studies with a tuition fee deferral with the help of the European Investment Fund (EIF) and our partnership with Allianz Bank Bulgaria. Individuals must be Bulgarian citizens and 18 years of age or older for the bank loan. They must have completed the application process for the Alpha program and be admitted to the chosen program.
