REDUCTIONS FOR HIGH SCHOOL DIPLOMA HOLDERS WITH A SCORE OF 100/100

Students enrolling for the first time in a First Cycle degree or Single Cycle degree at UNIBS, and who have achieved a school leaving diploma score with a score of 100/100 or 100 cum laude are exempted from the contribution (second and third instalment) for the first year of the course.
This reduction does not apply to transferred students, those who have repeated a year and students who already have a degree. 
Only payment of the first instalment of €156 is required. This comprises the regional fee for entitlement to study and the duty stamp.
The reduction is applied automatically.

REDUCTIONS DUE TO MERIT

A reduction of up to € 450 is applied to the all-inclusive annual contribution (second and third instalment) for students meeting the conditions set out below, and who have jointly achieved a standard of merit in terms of educational credits and the weighted average grade for the course attended and the last academic year of enrolment.  

For each study course and year of the course, this threshold is calculated according to the distribution of the frequency of CFUs and the weighted average.  It is calculated with the 75th percentile of both distribution frequencies as at 31 October.   

The reduction is applied automatically to the third instalment and may also be applied retrospectively to the second.  To be eligible, students must be enrolled in the academic year by 31 December 2021. 

Conditions for receiving the reduction:

  • Being enrolled at University of Brescia for a number of years no higher than the normal duration of the course, including course changes;
  • not having interrupted studies, not having exceeded the prescribed intermediate duration of the course or repeating a year during the student’s UNIBS career, and not having incurred course expiry with other Universities:
  • not having already acquired a previous degree or  Second Cycle degree, with the exception of those enrolling in a two-year short specialisation course after obtaining the First Cycle qualification;
  • being up-to-date with payments, including prior payments.

You are eligible for the merit award if, during the 2021/2022 academic year, you requested a course transfer up to the limit of years of enrolment at the University.

Grades achieved in exams taken in academic careers other than those of the Course which the student is enrolled in, are not taken into account.

CFUs and grades for supernumerary and extracurricular exams will not be taken into account.

Grades for exams that have been validated are not taken into account, with the exception of CFUs and grades for international mobility programmes during the normal period of enrolment.  

The reduction due to merit threshold may not in any case exceed the contribution amount originally payable by the student.
