Student life in Italy

Italy is an accessible study destination. Of course, the costs increase with the proximity to the big cities of the country [Rome, Milan], but if you choose a university from a smaller city, the costs of rent and food will decrease. Thus, the rent in Italy is between € 400 and € 700 per month. The tuition fees in Italy are between € 1,000 and € 10,000 per academic year. Universities in this country offer scholarships and financial aid that you, as an international student, can benefit from, in order to lower the costs of your studies or daily expenses.

Tradition in education

Italy has offered to the world some of the greatest artists and scientists. Moreover, in the last centuries, this country was the starting point of innovation and revolution in art, architecture, philosophy, religion and sciences throughout Europe. Thus, it is not surprising that Italy welcomes students with open arms since 1088. For example, the University of Padova was established in 1222. The universities in this country try to offer the best educational programmes to international students, taught in both English and Italian. Over 50 universities in Italy are recognized worldwide for the world-class education offered to young people. Here you can apply for programmes in Economics, Engineering or even Medicine, and after graduation, you will receive an internationally recognized diploma.
