The academic calendar at UPT is divided into two semesters. For convenience, tuition fees are calculated per year. For Albania residents, tuition fees at UPT start from 10 USD. Thanks to financial support programs, students have the opportunity to fully or partially cover the cost of education. The cost of education and the availability of scholarships can be checked on the official website.
It is necessary to pay attention to other costs: accommodation, transportation, study materials, food, and personal expenses.
The city campus of UPT provides students with countless opportunities for work and recreation — from sitting in a coffee shop with a laptop to internships at large companies. Tirana has a well developed entertainment infrastructure, but the rhythm of the big city can be distracting for some students.
There is a library on the grounds of the university. There are collected scientific works of graduates and teachers of the university, as well as fiction. The educational institution cares about the physical health of students, therefore it provides a number of opportunities to strengthen physical fitness: sports grounds, clubs and various sports events. Not only locals study at UPT, but also students from other countries. This is a unique opportunity to get in touch with the culture of other countries, meet representatives of different nationalities and make friends around the world.
