NB: You must pay the first instalment of your fees in order to confirm your enrolment for the academic year. If the University of Padova does not receive your tuition fee on time, you will not be enrolled and you will not have access to Unipd webmail, Moodle or any other university service.

Th SECOND and the THIRD instalments are calculated according to your income, merit and individual situation.

The SECOND instalmentmust be paid by 15 February 2019.

The THIRD instalment must be paid by 15 May 2019.

You can pay your tuition fees as follows:

  • In person, through the pre-printed payment form (called MAV) that you can download from Uniweb (“Diritto allo studio - Contribuzione”). You have to verify the successful registration of your payment on Uniweb after a few days.
  • Through PagoPA available on Uniweb ("Tasse"). Detailed instructions on PagoPA are available on page www.unipd.it/en/key-documents
  • Bank transfer (only if you are abroad): in order to receive the necessary bank information (IBAN etc.) you must send an email to benefici.studenti@unipd.it (Ufficio Servizi agli Studenti). In this case, the payment is not acquired directly by the system, but it has to be registered by the office in charge (see contacts below). This is done after you show or send by fax/email the receipt issued by the bank which includes the CRO (i.e. the transaction code) number.
