Università degli Studi di Perugia

Skip to main content

As a general rule, international students wishing to enrol on an Italian degree programme (whether full or part time) are required to produce the following documents:

  • Original Certificates showing that the student has completed and passed secondary education exams (provided with sworn translations in Italian, approved by Italian consulate)
  • Original Certificates showing that the student has passed academic exams allowing them to be admitted into the university system in their home country (provided with sworn translations in Italian, approved by Italian consulate)
  • Italian Language Competency certificates
  • Passport photographs

It should be noted, however, that the process of academic equivalence can be long and should be started as early as possible before the student intends to come to Italy.  Students should, firstly, contact the Italian consulate in their home country for detailed information on document equivalence/ 'equipollenza' procedures.
