- Classes will meet on Mondays and Wednesdays at 11am – 12:30pm US Eastern / 5pm – 6:30pm Budapest time.

Who should apply?
BSME welcomes participants with varying levels of background. You may be currently pursuing a teaching license; you may be planning to pursue other paths to licensure (e.g., master’s program); you may be an educator at the K–12 or college level; or you may be simply curious about the learning and teaching of mathematics, particularly the student-centered approach. The common thread among BSME participants is their genuine interest in mathematics education and effective teaching practices. (Note: Participants must have completed at least one year of college and be 18 years in age by the time they enter BSME.)
The tuition for the online course is $800. There is also an optional transcript fee of $450, which you need to pay if you want an official transcript and earn credits that you can transfer to your home institution. If you choose not to pay the transcript fee you will receive a Course Completion Certificate.
After you’ve been admitted to the program, you will receive instruction from the BSME North American Office regarding tuition payment.
All tuition, including the transcript fee (if applicable), must be paid in full 7 days prior to the first day of classes, unless other arrangements have been made.
If you choose to withdraw from a course (or from the program), we will reimburse a portion of your tuition according to the following schedule:
- Before the payment deadline: Full refund.
- Before the orientation day: 80%.
- Before the end of the first week: 60%.
- Before the end of the second week: 40%.
- Beyond two weeks: No refund.
