Fees and scholarships


The tuition fee for all students enrolled in a Bachelor or a Master at USI, including those attending the Bachelor of Medicine at University of Basel (UNIBAS), is CHF 4’000 per semester. Tuition for applicants whose residence was in Switzerland (including Liechtenstein) at the time of obtaining the high school diploma (maturità) is CHF 2’000 per semester. All fees must be paid before the beginning of each semester, by the deadline stated the invoice. Payment is a requirement for enrolment or renewing registration.



The IBSA Foundation for Scientific Research firmly believes that faith in the future can be obtained by building solid foundations through education and specialized research. Therefore, the IBSA Foundation for Scientific Research offers scholarships to USI students in medicine every year.

More information about the regulation of the IBSA scholarship and on how to apply for an IBSA scholarship can be found in the presentation attached.
