International students

At the three campuses of Bozen-Bolzano, Brixen-Bressanone and Bruneck-Brunico, students can rely on excellent services and individual tutoring. Our classes, taught by lecturers of more than 40 different nationalities, are held in small groups. This helps lecturers get to know students and monitor their progress better. Our University has established international exchange programmes with more than 100 universities in Spain, USA, Taiwan and many other countries.

Studying in three languages

Almost all of our courses are trilingual. Lessons and exams are in Italian, German and English. At the end of their degrees, graduates also receive a ‘Language Diploma Supplement’, a document that certifies the language levels achieved. In order to be admitted to most of our study programmes, we require a B2 level certification of competence in at least two of the three official languages. 

Some master programmes are taught only in English, though.

Accommodation and Food

The student halls on the Bozen-Bolzano, Brixen-Bressanone and Bruneck-Brunico campuses host 600 students. The price for a single bedroom is € 300 and € 230 for a double room. You can apply for an accommodation from mid-June.

You can find adverts to rent a room in a flat-share on 

Each campus has a canteen where students can choose their favourite food from a rich menu and pay with their Student Card.


Students under 27 can buy for €150 an ABO+ student season ticket valid for a year. ABO+ is managed by the local authority Provincia Autonoma di Bolzano. The ABO+ can be used on all public transport in South Tyrol and on regional trains to Trento.

Bozen-Bolzano, Brixen-Bressanone and Bruneck-Brunico - like all South Tyrol - are small towns and, therefore, very suitable for cycling. Classrooms are easy to reach by bike in less than 15 minutes from each student hall!

Living costs in South Tyrol

Living costs in South Tyrol are comparable to those of many other cities in Northern Italy. Approximately, if you exclude tuition fees, you will need at least €800 per month for living (accommodation, food, study materials, leisure, clothing) in the Bozen-Bolzano area.

Student Associations

Studying is fundamental, but you also have to socialise with other members of the student community. At unibz we have six student associations: SCUB, Pro - Students for Business, k!kero, ESN, the AlumniClub and, on the Brixen-Bressanone campus, Talìa UniLife. The most popular event of the year is the SnowDays, organised by SCUB, which normally attracts more than 600 students, many of whom are registered at partner universities and arrive to South Tyrol for the first time just to attend the event.

Open Day

Once a year, unibz is open to prospective students so that, before applying, they can enquire in depth about the degree courses they are interested in. On this day, students can visit the university, its facilities, student halls and take the language tests.

Studying barrier free

Students with disabilities who are planning to study at unibz can contact the Student Support to clarify any doubts they may have and ask for information relating to their needs (accessibility of buildings, applications for support, etc.).

Upon request of students with disabilities, the University can arrange for admission procedures to be customised to meet the needs of each student also by making available any specific technological devices and learning equipment required.
