Student benefit System

Students’ benefits are managed by EDiSU, for accommodation and meals mainly, and by arrangements between the UNIPV and different parties, such as UNIBANCA and our local bus company.

Tuition fees

Paid proportionally to your income: if you submit the required documentation you will pay an amount of tuition fees proportional to your income. As an international students you also have the option to ask for a flat rate: depending on the country of residence you have access to a flat rate for your tuition fee. For more information please check our webpage.


Every enrolled or prospective students may apply for a scholarship from EDiSU, our agency. Scholarship are a mix of cash money, one free meal per day and accommodation, depending on what you apply to. Please note that you may apply for a scholarship even if you are not enrolled yet but the actual scholarship will be awarded later during the academic year. You may not have access to the scholarship for several months so you have to have some financial resources to start with.

Scholarship are awarded checking two main factors: income and academic result. As for the academic result, first year student scholarships are only issued when students gain the required number of credits during their first year at UNIPV.
