IPH students pay two different types of contributions:
– IPH Fee: € 3,200 (€ 2,000 for students from the Foundation Course of the University of Pisa).
Up to 10 low-income students may qualify for a € 2,000 discounted fee: see details below.
– University Taxes. These vary between € 356 (for yearly family incomes below € 23,500) and € 2,556 depending on the country of origin.
IPH fee is due only for the first year. Therefore, in the first year, students pay both the IPH fee + the University taxes. Instead, during the second and third year of their Bachelor’s degree programmes, students will continue to pay the University taxes only.
The University Taxes will be paid in 4 instalments: the first one in September, the second in February, the third in April and the fourth in May. Details will be provided once students are fully enrolled.
Scholarships provided by the DSU (Regional Agency for the Right to Study) may be available.
Up to 10 students who obtain the DSU scholarship may request the reduced, € 2,000 IPH fee. In the event that the recipients of the DSU scholarship exceed the number of 10, the reduced IPH fee will be granted on a first-come, first-serve basis (the date and time of the submission of the application for the DSU scholarship will serve as evidence).
Should you wish to apply for the DSU scholarship, make sure that you get all the necessary legalised documents in due time. Consider that obtaining some of the official records from local authorities, and their translation and legalisation, may require a long time.
For information about the documents needed, visit this link: https://www.dsu.toscana.it/web/ardsu/-/foreign-students
Non-EU Students must obtain a student Visa (Type D). The issuance of the Visa is administered by the Italian diplomatic authorities through the Universitaly portal. IPH staff will provide information on how to open an account at University and upload the documents required after the applicant is admitted to the Programme and receives the necessary pre-acceptance letter.
IMPORTANT: WE WILL AUTHORISE THE START OF THE REVIEWING PROCESS FOR THE VISA ONLY AFTER RECEIVING THE FIRST INSTALMENT OF THE IPH FEE (€ 1,500). THEREFORE, MAKE SURE TO IMMEDIATELY SEND US THE RECEIPT OF THE PAYMENT, OTHERWISE, YOUR APPLICATION ON THE UNIVERSITALY PORTAL REMAINS BLOCKED AND WILL BE DISCONTINUED AFTER THE DEADLINES LISTED BELOW.
THE DEADLINES FOR THE PAYMENT OF THE FIRST INSTALMENT DEPEND ON YOUR COUNTRY OF RESIDENCE, AS FOLLOWS:
– 15th June 2023 for students from Afghanistan, Iran, Pakistan
– 15th July 2023 for all NON-EU students
– 15th August 2023 for all the EU students (from the European Economic Area, the Swiss Federation, Norway, and Iceland). NB: EU citizens need not use the Universitaly Portal
BE ASSURED THAT IN THE EVENT THE ISSUANCE OF THE VISA IS ULTIMATELY DENIED BY THE ITALIAN AUTHORITIES, THE IPH INSTALMENT WILL BE REFUNDED.
The second instalment (€ 1,700) is due by 18th September 2023 (except for the applicants for the DSU scholarship, as long as the review of their application is pending).
Payments of the IPH fee must be made by following the procedures reported on our website: https://unipi.pagoatenei.cineca.it/frontoffice/modellopagamento?id=657&lang=en
