Flywire is an international money transfer service used by many educational institutions around the world. Since the tuition fee is simply transferred from a domestic bank account of the student’s country, there is no need to perform troublesome overseas money transfer procedures or to pay a lot of overseas money transfer fee. You can start the payment process from the dedicated UJS Language Institute page on Flywire.
