Tuition fee and scholarship

  
Tuition fee

The annual tuition fee is calculated on the basis of the financial background of the student’s family (n° of family members and nature/amount of yearly income) and the cost of the chosen degree programme.

A student may pay from a minimum of about € 3500 (for lower family incomes and cheaper courses) to a maximum of about € 8900 (for higher family incomes and more expensive courses) per year.

Scholarships

Candidates can request the “UCSC International Scholarship” while filling out the online application. The UCSC International Scholarship is an annual tuition fee reduction promoted by Università Cattolica in order to foster the access of international student to the degree programmes. The discount covers about 37% of the total cost. Applicants are notified of the award by email when they receive an offer for admission. The annual tuition fee applicable to undergraduate students who receive the UCSC International Scholarship is € 5000.

This scholarship is automatically extended from year to year for the normal duration of the degree programme. Successful candidates must maintain full-time enrolment status in order to finish their degrees on time. Should the candidate be unable to graduate on the expected date, all additional costs will be at the student’s expense.

In case students receive other forms of financial aid (scholarships and accommodation offered by EDUCatt), the UCSC International Scholarship will not be awarded.
