Tuition fees

Payment of tuition fees gives access to all services provided by the University of Padua.

Bachelor's, Master's, single-cycle degrees

  Fee-waiver for students residing in Ukraine

The Board of Administration, as a result of the motion of solidarity with the Ukrainian people approved by the Academic Senate, has approved urgent and extraordinary measures for students resident in Ukraine currently enrolled for the 2021/2022 academic year. The interventions include the exemption from the payment of the third instalment.

The University plan also includes special measures for Russian and Belarusian students, for whom the payment of the third instalment will be postponed until 30 June 2022. If the international crisis situation should continue beyond that date, it is possible, on request, to suspend payment and cancel the penalty fee for the late payment in order to allow students to continue their studies normally, without prejudice to the fact that in order to obtain a degree it is mandatory to regularise their tuition fees.

  Standard amounts (WITHOUT scholarships, fee-waivers etc.)

The total maximum amount to be paid depends on your degree programme.

For academic year 2022/23:

  • Group A - Humanistic: €2533
  • Group B - Scientific: €2626
  • Group E - Primary teacher education: €2948

The above amounts can be significantly waived based on your “Equivalent Economic Status Index – ISEE”. For further information on how to obtain your ISEE and apply for the economic benefits, see the Guide

A simulator to calculate the estimated tuition fee is available here.

The University of Padova additionally supports your studies through other types of fee-waivers and scholarships.

The call for applications for tuition fees and fee-waivers A.Y. 2022/23 is scheduled for the first week of July.

  How and when to pay

The payment is made in three instalments.

The FIRST instalment is € 192 for first-year students of any degree programme and € 572 for students already enrolled in the a.y. 2021/22 and 16 euros for students already eligible for scholarships or with specific disabilities.
