authorities to seek help to find rented/shared accommodation
which are not that difficult to get.

smartly or gets oneís education funded through
Government/University scholarship awards, etc. The average
amount to tuition fees a student would have to pa to stud in a
Italy can lie from 850 euro to 1,000 euro per

of study one is pursuing. Living expenses that include housing,
food, traveling, etc. would mean shedding out another 1000 to
1500 euro per month. The advantage is that international

assistance that Italian students receive. Financial assistance
