Fees and Charges
Below is an excerpt of the information available in the Italian website and in the Student Regulations (section 13) on when and how much students are charged each year to study at the University of Florence.
Fees and charges are the same for enrolment in any of the first (bachelors), second (masters) or combined cycle degree programme that the University offers.
Information on fees and charges for doctoral courses and other continuing education study paths is available in the web pages of each individual course.
The total amount of enrolment charges and tuition fees for academic year 2017-2018 at the University of Florence, vary from 156 to about 2600 euros. There is a part which is fixed for everyone (enrolment charges: 156 euro) and another part (tuition fees) which varies according to the student's family overall income.
For information on what is exactly the ISEE declaration and how to obtain it see here (in Italian).
Academic year 2017-2018 sees a change in the way fees and charges are calculated, both for first-year students and for those enrolling in the following years.
Below is a schematic overview on how the fees and charges are composed:
All inclusive fee, established by the University, as provided by Law 232/2016,
Regional tax (140 euros) and stamp duty (16 euros), according to current legislation.
How the amount of the contribution is determined - 1st year students
For those enrolling in the first year of any degree program (three-year bachelor, master's, single-cycle) the contribution is determined according to the overall family income, based on the ISEE (Indicatore Situazione Economica Equivalente).
How is the amount of the contribution determined - students of the following years
For those enrolling in the years following the first, the contribution is based on:
Income, based on the ISEE.
Regularity of studies. With reference to the fees, students are defined as regular if they have been enrolled in the number of years equal or inferior to the normal duration of the course of study, plus one. i.e. Students can only fall behind one year before being considered no longer regular. For part-time students the number of enrolments is calculated in proportion.
Minimum of credits acquired. Students enrolling in the 2nd year of studies must have obtained at least 10 ECTS credits, in the previous year and before 10 August of the academic year of enrolment, whereas those enrolling in subsequent years must have obtained at least 25 CFU (in brief, they are defined as active).
Payments are due in two instalments
- the first one payable at the time of enrolment
- and the second one due around the end of April of the following year.
There are late fees and interest rate charges for late payments.
Part time students will have a 50% discount on tuition fees.

Students with a certified disability of more than 66% and those who receive a study grant are exempt from all fees and charges except for the stamp duty (16 euros).
