To give an idea, you may find below details about the funding opportunities available to students of the 2019 cohort.

  • In their Year1 they have all been receiving:
    • an average of 2,000 EUR as yearly allowance
    • up to 1,500 EUR as rent reimbursement
    • free access to UAQ canteens (corresponding to 1,500 EUR/year)
  • To support their Year2 they are applying for these funding opportunities:
    • Erasmus+ KA103
    • Special fund by the Italian Ministry of Education known as Fondo Giovani
    • Local grant by the Abruzzo Region
    which are expected to award them a contribution worth a minimum of 5,000 EUR all through Year2, as it was the case for all our 2018-cohort students.


Participation costs

EUR 2,250 per semester (i.e. 4 installments for a total of EUR 9,000), which include the tuition fees, full insurance coverage and any other mandatory costs related to student participation in the programme. Participation costs do not include accommodation costs, living costs, travelling costs, the cost of equipment or books or the sports centres.

Partial fee waiver

For the 2021 intake the InterMaths Consortium will grant the students partial waiver of the participations costs. Based on that, the student will only have to pay the InterMaths Consortium:

- a total of 1,400 EUR, to be paid in four installments (350 EUR/semester) at the beginning of each term.

With regard to the first semester, a 200-EUR non-refundable deposit will be required within 30 days after notification of selection, whereas the remainder is to be cleared before Semester 1 begins.

Selection procedure

Please note that you won't be charged any fee to take part in the whole application and selection process.

The Evaluation Committee will meet twice:
  1. In the period 19 April – 17 May 2021 the Evaluation Committee will evaluate all the applications successfully submitted by 1 pm 18 April 2021 and will draw up an Absolute Ranking List (ARL-A).
  2. In the period 2 – 31 May 2021 the Evaluation Committee will evaluate all the applications submitted from 1 pm 18 April 2021 to 1 pm 30 April 2021, and will draw up another Absolute Ranking List (ARL-B). 

The evaluation committee will merge the two ranking lists (ARL-A and ARL-B) to draw up the final absolute ranking list, which will be used to apply for funding opportunities.

The Evaluation Committee will then meet again in mid-August in order to finalize the pre-enrollments and to remove from the list the students who will not have certified the accomplishment of their bachelor's degree (or equivalent).
