Fees and Scholarships 2019/2020

The maximum fee for University tuition is € 2.296,00, plus € 140,00 for Regional taxes, and € 16.00 for the stamp duty. The total amount of € 2,452.00 is divided into 4 installments; the first is € 356,00 and all students must pay it by the 30th of September 2019 except  for those who submit a DSU scholarship application and those who have a disability according to art. 3, comma 1, of the law dated 5th of February 1992, n. 104) or for those who have a disability greater or equal to 66% who are responsible only for the payment of the stamp duty.

If a student has not completed his/her enrolment by the 30th of September 2019, he/she will have to pay a late penalty fee (candidates who have applied for a degree program which requires an admission exam are excluded from the penalty fee). 

The call for applications for scholarships is available online from July 2019 until the 30 August 2019 (www.dsu.toscana.it), however, in order to enroll the student must complete the ‘course selection’ on the Alice portal. If the course selection is not completed by the 30th of September 2019, the student will be charged with a late penalty fee (candidates who have applied to a degree programme which requires an admission exam are excluded from the penalty fee). The submission of a scholarship application temporarily delays the payment of the first instalment until the 16th of March 2020: after which any students who is awarded with a scholarship will not be required to pay any tuition fees.

International students who have an income from abroad and who wish to obtain benefits from the DSU (scholarships, services scholarships, contribution for disabled students, extraordinary contribution, discounted dining hall fees), have to submit, together with the application (www.dsu.toscana.it), the appropriate documentation regarding the economic situation of their family, that:

1- can be self-certified based on income and assets from countries which belong to the European Union

2- is demonstrated by the appropriate documents for income and assets from countries which are not part of the European Union (in this case self-certification or an affidavit cannot be accepted). Documents coming from another country have to be legalised by the Italian diplomatic authority in your country and must be translated into Italian.

Documentation has to include the following information:

•   the composition of the family
•   the gross income (including taxes) collected abroad by each family member in the year 2017
•   any buildings (real estate) owned abroad by each family member on the 31th of December 2017, including the measures in square meters
•   movable assets (eg bank deposits, stocks) owned abroad on the 31rt of December 2017
•   any lease (rent) maintained for the primary residence of the family

Non-EU students coming from developing countries (as decreed in MIUR n.594/2014) can produce a certificate issued by the Italian diplomatic authorities in their country, certifying that the student does not belong to a family known for high income and an elevated social status: this certificate, in order to quantify the amount of the ISEEP and ISPEP indicators, should correspond to €0 for both indicators.

Students without a country or political refugees do not have to submit a declaration issued by the relevant Embassy, but they still have to demonstrate their status with the relevant documentation. For students without a country, this is issued by the Tribunale Civile. For political refugees, this is issued by a specific Commission established by the Ministry of the Interior.

The total fees can be reduced up to a maximum of € 2,296.00 per income and up to a maximum of € 267.00 based on merit. The sum of all reductions in any case cannot exceed € 2.296,00. All details available on the dedicated webpage.
