Student Experience


While studying at Ider University you will get to experience everything Mongolia has to offer. A vibrant city, a rich culture with a deep history, and the vast steppes of Mongolia with their beautiful vistas. 


Each semester we arrange student trips outside the city to introduce our international students to Mongolian culture, food, games, and beautiful nature. Students get to ride horses, hike mountains, eat traditional food and visit nomadic family. 





We encourage students to apply at least 4 weeks before their arrival date. We take care of all the visa application processes for students.


Students are required to first submit all of the required documents during their admissions application. Once these are submitted and a 50% deposit is paid, the student visa can be obtained from the Mongolian consulate or embassy in the student's country of residence. Students from countries with no Mongolian consulate or embassy will receive their visa at the border entry point (airport or train station).



Dormitory and Meals


International students have the opportunity to stay at our student dormitory or with a host family if available. At the dormitory, 2 students share a bedroom, kitchen and bathroom. Host families cost about half of the dormitory cost. Host families offer a great cultural experience for the student, but may not be for everyone.


Students have the option of enrolling in a meal plan. If enrolled, the students have 3 meals a day at the school Monday through Friday. The cafe servers a mix of Asian and European style food, such as goulash, shepherds pie, noodles, soup and so on. 



ACBSP Accreditation


Ider University was accredited in 2014 under the rigorous ACBSP accreditation process. ACBSP is recognized around the world and is a leading specialized accreditation association for business education. A huge benefit to our students is the ability of their credits and diplomas to transfer and be accepted around the world.
