Top scored candidates in the rankings will be entitled to receive one of UniTrento scholarships for the yearly amount of 5.200 euros that can be confirmed for the following year (s) after verification of the student’s performance (credits earned).

If you benefit from one of UniTrento scholarships, the tuition fees are waived but, since the number of scholarships is limited, you are not necessarily entitled to receive a UniTrento scholarship if you turn out to be in the “fee waiver” bracket.


Enrolment renewal

In September, at the end of each academic year, UniTrento checks the number of credits earned by non-EU students until 10th August and establishes the tuition amount to be paid for the following academic year, as below:


Credits earned before 10th August  Degree courses with max fee of € 6.000 Degree courses with max fee of € 10.000
≥ 42 Fee waiver and UniTrento scholarship confirmation Fee waiver and UniTrento scholarship confirmation
36 ≤ CFU < 42 € 1.000 € 1.000
24 ≤ CFU < 36 € 2.000 € 3000
6 ≤ CFU< 24 € 4.500 € 6.500
CFU < 6 € 6.000 € 10.000

In case of a fee waiver condition, students attending the last year of a Master’s degree course, maintain this  benefit until 31st  March of the following year. For Bachelor’s students the fees are waived until 31st December.

Non-EU students who do not graduate by the above deadlines but succeed in graduating by the month of July, have to pay a 500 euros fee.

In case students did not graduate by the end of July, they have to pay the tuition fees for the whole academic year, based the table above.

Tuition fees instalments

For non-EU paying students fees are in three instalments, due as for all paying students:

  • 1st instalment: to be paid within 30th September 
  • 2nd instalment: the 70% of the University contribution variable rate, to be paid within 30th November
  • 3rd instalment: the remaining part of the University contribution, to be paid within 31st March

Only in case of serious and motivated reasons the payment of the 2nd instalment can be delayed to March (if equal or exceeding 2.000 euros) or after March (if equal or exceeding 4.500 euros).
