Higher education in Italy is largely subsidized by the government. This applies to both foreign and Italian students. Thanks to that, all students enrolled at the University of Pisa are only required to pay an annual enrollment fee (Tassa di iscrizione). The amount of the fee depends upon the country of origin of the student and can vary from a minimum of about € 250 to a maximum of about € 2100. In most cases, foreign students pay tuition fees close to the minimum.
The University of Pisa grants financial aid for international students enrolled in English-language courses. Prospective students are encouraged to apply.
