amongst SNU and Adamas, the fees for Adamas is lower which is around 172,800 per annum that will sum upto 611,700 after 4 years, whereas it is 235,000 per annum in SNU.

so adamas is a better choice anyways with refernce to fees investment if you are looking for a college that offers you great studies with lower fees

all the best!
