EU nationals and Eu-Equated citizens
EU nationals and Eu-equated applicants (independently of their place of residence), as well as non-EU citizens living in Italy on a regular stay permit, may enroll by directly submitting to the chosen Italian institutions their personal academic records or any other document issued by their home institutions (as usual, foreign documents must be translated into Italian and legalised by the competent Italian diplomatic Authorities abroad; go to Consular Formalization of Documents, Legal Translations, and Legalization of Documents);
Non-Eu citizens outside Italy
Non-EU citizens living outside Italy have to submit their pre-applications to the competent Italian Embassies or Consulates; it is a task of the Italian diplomatic authorities to forward the applications and attached documents to the Italian institutions concerned (usually by the end of September).
A set number of places are available for students on each degree course. Theseis quotas are set annually by a circular of the Italian Government.
The limited places for non-EU students are reserved for students who are not citizens of the European Union and who reside abroad (Ministry Circular no. 602 of 18 May 2011).
Non-EC applicants residing abroad, since applying to access reserved study places, must go to the Student registry office of the chosen course of study either to:
- fulfil registration (for free-access courses);
- submit the registration form to the admission exams (for restricted access courses). The payment proof receipt can be exhibited either to the Student Secretary Office or to Examiners on the day of the admission test.
For courses with free access the quota reserved for non-EU students may entail an admission test if the number of applications exceeds the number of reserved places.
For these non-EU students an Italian language test will be held on September 3, 2012 for all faculties. Detailed information about the location of the language test can is available either in the admission notice or contacting the Students registry office of the chosen course of study.
Marco Polo Project
The places provided for Chinese students are reserved exclusively for students participating in the Marco Polo project, a programme designed and developed by CRUI at the direct request of the Presidency of the Italian Republic to increase the number of Chinese students attending our universities.
Under this programme, universities are required to reserve a number of places in their courses for students participating in the Marco Polo project and to provide them with economic benefits, as established by each university.
