Free University of Bozen-Bolzano

Studying at unibz

We offer more than 30 international study programmes in the following fields: Economics, Business, Natural Sciences, Engineering, Computer Science, Education, Communication as well as Design and Art. Most programmes are trilingual, while some master programmes are taught entirely in English.


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 10 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 140 universities in Spain, USA, Taiwan and many other countries.


Studying in three languages

Almost all of our programmes are trilingual. Lessons and exams are in Italian, German and English. At the end of their studies, graduates also receive the Diploma Supplement, a document that also 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 masters are taught only in English, though.

Living in South Tyrol

Studying in a place where people go on holiday: isn't it the dream of many?

When our students from over 40 countries are not busy with reading and classes, they can enjoy the privilege of living in one of the most attractive regions in Europe. In South Tyrol the cultural choice is ample and exciting and, for those who like sports - not only winter sports - the region is a paradise on earth, with modern and well-equipped facilities. At the background of this study experience, you have the spectacular view of the Dolomites, a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

Accommodation and Food

The publicly funded student halls at the Bozen-Bolzano and Brixen-Bressanone campuses host 600 students. The price for a single bedroom is € 360 and € 270 for a double room. You can normally apply for an accommodation in the second half of June.

Local private institutions and companies are working on opening new private student halls in Bozen-Bolzano. Private student halls manage their own admission, rent, services. See here for the current offer:

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 an ABO+ student season ticket valid for a year for €150. ABO+ is managed by the local government (Autonomous Province of Bozen-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 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 €700 per month for living (accommodation, food, study materials, leisure, clothing) in the Bozen-Bolzano area.

More info on the site “Osservatorio prezzi” (price watchdog) of South Tyrol.

Scholarships and financial help

Students can apply for a scholarship to the Ufficio per il diritto allo studio universitario and they may be able to obtain - depending on their income - between €1,400 and €5,800 per year. If students have a right to a scholarship, they will also get a refund of the tuition fees. The student associations sh.asus and MUA help students with the application for this type of scholarship.

Those who, after the first year, get an average grade of 27/30 for their exams, are eligible to apply for scholarships based on merit rather than income.

Foreign students and Italian students living abroad can also apply for scholarships funded by the Ministero degli Affari Esteri (MAE, the Italian Foreign Office).

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, Exchange Student unibz, the AlumniClub and, at 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. During the Open Day, students can visit the university, its facilities and the student halls.

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 disabled students, 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.
