Successful applicants will receive a letter of admission and will be requested to pay the fees upon acceptance of the offer. Payments can be made via bank trasfer according to one of the following options:

  • full amount within a maximum of two weeks from the date of the letter;

All applicants are requested to pay an application processing fee of €50 before submitting their application.



Students bear the responsibility to secure their full living and housing expenses prior to their arrival in Venice (estimated at a minimum of €850 per month).


Students are responsible for their own accommodation both during first semester in Venice and second semester at the hosting university.

The E.MA Office is available to provide advice and suggestions for accommodation. See these useful links for independent house hunting. Depending on the choice of accommodation, the anticipated rent per each student could range from a minimum of 300 € to a maximum of 700 € per month, with utilities and condominium expenses ranging from 85 € to 250 € per month. 

For the 2nd semester E.MA students have the whole responsibility for all accommodation arrangements. Accommodation costs vary depending on the second semester destination, due to the differences in the cost of living among European countries.

* The annual field trip is subject to final confirmation and availability of budgetary resources.
