FOREIGN STUDENTS REGISTRATION
NON-EU CITIZENS RESIDENT ABROAD
Non-EU citizens who do not already reside in Italy must submit a pre-enrollment application to the Italian Diplomatic Representation of the Country in which the qualification was obtained, following the indications and deadlines established by the Ministry.
For these students a number of reserved seats (contingent) is established annually.
After submitting the documents to the Italian Diplomatic Representation, this latter after the appropriate checks, will return to the candidates:
- the application for pre-registration with authentication of the photograph and the signature
- the documentation related to the studies carried out translated and legalized
- the Declaration of value of the qualifications obtained.
The Diplomatic Authorities send to the Universities chosen by the students (usually in the month of July), through certified e-mail, the list of candidates subdivided by degree courses and master’s degree programs. The Universities, after a first administrative check of the requests, will inform the Representations of the admission “with reserve” to the tests of the individual candidates and indicate the location, date, time and methods for conducting admission tests and proof of Italian language.
For admission to the first or second level academic courses, the student must take the test of knowledge of the Italian language.
According to the regulations contained in the ministerial circular this proof of knowledge of the Italian language must not be taken into account – and in some cases are not subject to the quota limit – if you have certain qualifications or certifications in Italian language competence.
The student who has to take the Italian language test (the assessment of the language skills is structured in a written test and an oral interview) and does not pass it cannot be registered and must leave the Italy before the visa expires.
After passing the required tests, the student must deliver to the Secretariat the documentation issued by the Diplomatic Representation and the receipt demonstrating the presentation of the application for a residence permit.
To complete the enrollment, a copy of the residence permit must be delivered to the newly released Student Office. Every year it is mandatory to bring a copy of the renewal of the residence permit to the Secretariat.
