We are working to define the new procedures for the next academic year 2021-2022. The deadlines and procedures will be published soon.
Please do not send emails to request information.

Good morning,

Please note that, in order to check if the applicant meets the requirements for enrollment in an Italian University, students holding a foreign title need to provide the Declaration of Value (D.O.V.) issued by the Italian embassy in their country (or the country where they studied, when different) and all academic titles obtained must be translated and validated by the Italian competent authorities.

Otherwise, students holding a title obtained abroad can provide the Statement of Comparability issued by the CIMEA in place of the abovementioned documentation.


The pre-enrollment application is mandatory for non-EU students applying for a study visa.
