Fees and Living Costs

There are two main costs for IMPPM students: academic fees and living expenses.

Academic fees cover registration, teaching, examinations, tuition, the use of the library and other student facilities at the University of Rome Tor Vergata. Academic fees for the 2016-2017 academic year amount to €7,000 (plus €146 for administrative fees).

It is also possible to attend a part of the programme, even only one module. In this case the cost per module is €750.

Living expenses are approximately €700-900 per month, including accommodation, meals, public transportation services and other general costs related to everyday life in Rome. IMPPM's students have the opportunity to book accomodation at Campus X.

The IMPPM diploma can also be an extra cost, depending on which certificate students choose to receive. Please follow this link for diploma cost details
