Refund policy for Specialising Masters

Please note that:
  • a request for a refund will be considered as a withdrawal from the master for the academic year of admission;
  • deferral requests will not be accepted. If you wish to be considered for another academic year, you will have to submit a new application.

Refundable amount:
A refund for administrative fees of € 100* will be subtracted from the amount that has been paid.

You can request for it if:
You have reserved a place in one of our master programmes for the academic year 2024/25, by paying the first instalment of the tuition fees and if any of the following circumstances occur:

  1. the Italian Embassy/Consulate rejects your visa application (only applicable if you are a non-EU student residing abroad);
  2. in the case of an illness or disability preventing you from enrolling in the programme;
  3. in the case of death/illness of a close family member (parent, sibling, spouse or child);

Refund requests submitted following one of the events listed above will be evaluated on a case-by-case basis by a dedicated commission. All refund requests will need to be formally submitted with supporting evidence.

Under no circumstance will a refund be granted if:

  • You were “conditionally accepted” and you do not meet the academic conditions set for admission;
  • You applied for visa after we have officially registered your withdrawal.
  • You have formally enrolled and started the programme.
