Study in Italy


Italy is a democratic, developed country with heavy global influence. It has contributed tremendously to develop the modern day technology. Its culture, architecture, government as well as economy are interesting to study. One can enjoy quality life in Italy. The country thus attracts a major chunk of Non-European and international students every year for education.


Education in Italy can be broken up in the following components:

  1. Pre-school education of three years.
  2. Primary Schooling for five years up to the age of 10/11.
  3. Secondary Schooling/Education which further comprises of three stages i.e. First Grade Secondary School of three years, Second Grade Secondary School of five years and a Third Grade Secondary School of 3+2 years.
  4. Secondary education continues up to the age of 18 to 19 and then a student can choose to enter the University for a Bachelorís degree (Laurea) of three to four years followed by the Masterís degree (Laurea Magistrale/Specialistica) of two years.

Furthermore, the academic year comprises of two semesters: The first one from September/October to January/February and the second one from February to July.


Home stays are pretty common in Italy and a viable option too for international students in terms of security and services. Most of the Universities may not be able to provide one with an on-campus accommodation however; one is free to approach the University authorities to seek help to find rented/shared accommodation which are not that difficult to get.


Studying in Italy like any other country in Europe can leave a hole in oneís pocket if one does not spend judiciously and 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 university in Italy can lie from 850 euro to 1,000 euro per academic year. This fee depends on the university and the course 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 students in Italy are at liberty to receive the same financial assistance that Italian students receive. Financial assistance is awarded to one on the basis of oneís academic results.


     University of Bologna, Universita degli Studi di Roma Sapienza, University of    Pisa, etc. are some of the top ranked and world class Universities of Italy.
