Tuition fees at UNIPA are equal for locals and foreigners, and start from 2,537 USD per year. The cost of education and the availability of scholarships can be checked on the official website.
In addition to the cost of education, it is necessary to pay attention to additional costs: accommodation, transportation, study materials, meals and personal expenses.
Bachelor. In Italy, school education lasts longer than 11 years, so it is not possible to enroll in a bachelor's program immediately after school. First, you need to eliminate the academic difference with the help of one of the preparatory programs (A-Levels, IB, Foundation, etc.). The second option is to study for a year at a university in your native country.
Master. There is an opportunity to study at UNIPA via online master's programs.
The campus of the educational institution is located in Palermo. 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. Student life at UNIPA is filled with intercultural activities, as not only local students study here, but also students from abroad. The exchange of knowledge and experience, networking and new acquaintances — all this is an integral part of studenthood.
In Italy, after graduation, you can stay for a period of 6 months to a year. To do this, you need to apply for a job seeker visa, but only graduates of a master's or doctoral program can do this. You can find other options for immigration in our article.
