Tuition Fees and Term Dates

Each year University Parthenope  establishes the amount of tuition fees to sustain a part of the cost of services (classes, laboratories, general services) dedicated to students.

Tuition and fee costs are subject to change and are determined each year. Please be aware that future tuition costs, fees, and standard student budget amounts may differ from year to year. Updated figures will be published on this website .This amount is not constant and invariable as it depends on several factors. Tuition fees for EU and non-EU students are adjusted according to the principles of fairness, solidarity, and progressivity. They hinge on the students’ family income in order to guarantee the right to education and to the highest levels of study and to reduce the university drop-out rate.
