List of low tuition universities in Italy, tuition fees, cost of living, admission and visa requirements are what we will consider in today’s article. But before I do that, I will like us to know a little about Italy. Italy, a European country with a long Mediterranean coastline, has left a powerful mark on Western Culture and cuisine is a very good country for international students seeking to study their courses in a foreign land.
Its capital, Rome, is a home to the Vatican as well as landmark art and ancient ruins. For quality higher education, Italy should be your next study abroad destination since around 90 higher education institutions, including more than 50 state universities, 17 private institutions and many other specialist learning centers are good for international students to study their dream courses in.
Universities in Italy individually sets their tuition fees. International students as well as EU pay tuition fees in Italian universities. Tuition fees for bachelor’s degree and master’s program is in the range of €850 – €1,200 per year for state universities, but private universities may charge much more for both EU and international students. Luckily to some students, they are not required to pay tuition fees depending on financial situation and academic performance.
Cost of Living
Cost of living in Italy really depends on location and spending habit of an individual. If you stay in the top cities you will spend more. It is estimated at 1000 / 1500 euros per month. This amount can cater for your feeding, books, stationery, accommodation, etc.
Higher education in Italy has three cycle programs based on which they offer their degree courses. Students from the US are eligible to apply to each of these cycles. The different kinds of institutions available for undergraduate study in Italy include:
Telematic universities (universities specialising in telecommunications and informatics)
Universities for foreigners
International students applying to study a degree in Italy must first proof they have successfully completed Secondary/high school (pre-university) education in their home country. Students going for courses in Italian are asked to prove their Italian language abilities.
(Kindly visit your university of choice’s webpage for more information)
An approved and acceptable visa for applicants looking for admissions in Italian universities is a Student visa. It is worthy of note that the US students and all international students must have this kind of visa before thinking of studying in the country. Also, other Visas are not accepted for educational purposes. Where you are going to stay in Italy during your studies must be certain too. Before you apply for a student visa, you have to show proof of sufficient finances to cover your educational and living expenses until the completion of your study.
