There are 11 universities in the Honduras. These are a mixture of state, private and those with religious affiliations. Unlike in other countries, private schools do not have as much academic prestige in Honduras, where they have the reputation of being little more than moneymaking enterprises.
The National Autonomous University of Honduras is the principal public university in Honduras. It has campuses in all of its most important cities, and it houses approximately 96 000 students. For more information please refer to https://www.se.gob.hn/.
The Honduras’ educational system follows the ‘bachelor's master's doctorate system’ with some slight modifications regarding each cycle’s length. Its Bachelor’s (or Licentiate) usually comprises three to six years, followed by a Master’s typically lasting two to three years and culminating in a Doctoral degree of two to three years. For a degree in medicine, the length of study is usually seven years.
Enrolment into Bachelor’s programs is conditional on possession of a Honduras Bachillerato degree or an equivalent qualification such as A levels or the International Baccalaureate. To be accepted to a Master’s program, students must have a relevant Bachelor degree from an institution accredited by the Honduras government or a recognized equivalent. Language of instruction is either English or Spanish in most cases.
In terms of financing your studies, most universities charge a fee for enrollment. For the country’s public institution, National Autonomous University of Honduras, the tuition is conducted free of charge. On the other hand, for private institutions, international fees for enrollment vary from £800 to £16 000 for Bachelor’s as well as Master’s degrees.
