Tuition fees

There are two different types of contribution:

– IPH fee: € 3,000 (€ 2,000 for students from the Foundation Course of the University of Pisa).
– University taxes.

The IPH fee is due only for the first year. 

Therefore, in the first year students pay both IPH fee and the University taxes.
At the conclusion of the IPH, during the second and third year of their Bachelor’s degree programmes, students will pay the University taxes only.

IPH fee

The IPH fee covers the following expenses (not included in the University taxes): 

– Courses taught in English and their didactic materials

– Italian language courses at the CLI (Linguistic Centre)

– Educational trips

– One-to-one tutorship in the Italian language, in tandem with a native speaker

– Assistance from the Academic tutor and the Logistics coordinator

The first instalment of the IPH fee (€ 1,500) is due by August 7th 2022.

The second instalment (€ 1,500) is due before the lessons start on September 3rd, 2022.

(However, you are more than welcome to pay the whole amount by August 7th, if you prefer so).

You must use the “pagoPA” platform, which allows you to pay by credit/debit card, internet banking or PayPal.

University taxes

The University taxes vary between € 356 (for family yearly incomes below € 23,500*) and up to € 2,556. The amount will be determined on the basis of your country of origin.

The University taxes will be paid in 4 instalments: the first one in September 2022, the second one in March 2023, the third one in April 2023, and the fourth one in May 2023. Details will be provided once students are enrolled.

Scholarships provided by the DSU (Regional Agency for the Right to Study) may be available. If you qualify for those scholarships, you could be exempted from the University taxes. However, the DSU scholarship does not waive the IPH fee.
