Università degli Studi di Perugia

International students

Foreign students residing abroad (and applying for a visa) who wish to enrol in a degree course offered by an Italian University must present a pre-enrolment application to the Italian Embassy or Consulate in their country of origin. We suggest contacting the Italian Embassy/Consulate to learn more about the application procedures and the specific deadlines.

The procedures are available at this website http://www.studiare-in-italia.it/studentistranieri/ (It’s available an English version).

The application must take place through a prior university pre-enrollment procedure, which precedes the subsequent enrolment phases:

1)  access the UNIVERSITALY portal (https://www.universitaly.it/index.php/registration/firststep) in order to fill in the relative “pre-enrolment application” online which will be issued after completing the pre-registration required. In the application, you must indicate the University of Perugia and choose the degree programme you want to enrol in. You will also need to specify the Embassy / Consulate where you will apply for an entry visa to Italy. The pre-enrolment application will be verified by the University of Perugia and forwarded to the Embassy / Consulate you have specified.

As the pre-enrolment procedure is already available on the Universitaly dashboard, we suggest you register and apply as soon as possibile in order to speed up the visa issuing process.

2) Once the pre-enrolment application has been completed, all candidates must apply for a university study/enrolment visa at the Italian consular diplomatic mission of the country of residence. Candidates may present their request to an Italian Mission located in a third Country. The Head of said Mission may decide the acceptance or the refusal of the request, based on an evaluation of the single circumstances and also taking into account the public interest.

Non-EU students residing abroad who wish to enrol in study courses, must obtain, from the Italian Consulate in their country of origin, an entry visa for study purposes/enrollment at a University (type D: “national”), that will be issued after completing the required pre-enrolment procedures.

To obtain a visa, students must prove that they meet the requirements set every year by the ministerial circular on the admission of foreign candidates (please visit: http://www.studiare-initalia.it/studentistranieri/).

This is to say:

  1. Adequate financial means of subsistence for the intended period of stay;
  2. Availability of the financial means for repatriation. This requirement can also be fulfilled by showing a valid return ticket;
  3. A suitable accommodation in Italy;
  4. Adequate health insurance coverage for medical care and hospitalization. Students must prove possession of the aforementioned insurance coverage when applying for a permit of stay.

Within eight days from their arrival in Italy with a type D "national" visa for STUDY reasons (University enrollment), applicants must submit the request for a permit of stay for STUDY reasons (University) to the police office (Questura) in the city where they intend to reside.

The application may be presented through an authorized Post Office, using the specific application kit (that is to say, an envelope containing the required forms, together with the pertinent instructions), available at the aforementioned post offices.

After completing and signing the forms, students must go to the post office, with the following documents:

  1. The filled-out forms, inside an open envelope;
  2. A € 16 revenue stamp;
  3. The original passport along with a photocopy of the pages containing their personal data as well as the stamps of entry and exit visas from the country;

  5. Copy of a document proving the availability of sufficient financial means for the duration of the stay in Italy;
  6. Documents proving that the student has a suitable accommodation in Italy;
  7. Copy of the pre-enrolment application at the Italian Embassy.

When submitting the application at the post office, all foreign students are to be identified and will have to pay the fees for the electronic Permit of Stay (Permesso di Soggiorno Elettronico – PSE).

The post office staff will schedule an appointment on behalf of the applicant at the Police Office in charge of foreign citizens (Ufficio stranieri) for photo-identification purposes. On the day of the appointment applicants will have to submit an enrolment certificate that the student can request, after enroling, at the Student Office (Segreteria studenti) of the pertinent degree course.

Students, after enroling in a university course, must apply, at least 60 days before its expiration date, the pertinent Questore (Chief of the police) of the Provincia (province) in which they are staying, for the renewal of their permit of stay for the entire year. When renewing the permit, foreign students who have entered Italy with a Visa type “D” national for STUDY purposes (University enrolment) must prove that they have:

  1. The same sufficient financial means for their entrance in Italy;
  2. Their certificate of enrolment at the University; it must be shown that the student has successfully passed a minimum of one examination when applying for the first renewal and two for the following years, except when there are causes of force-majeure
  3. The candidate meets all the other conditions set for the issuance of a permit of stay.

The permit of stay cannot be renewed for more than three years after the standard duration of the study course.

The evaluation procedure of the foreign secondary school qualifications for the admission to Bachelor’s or Master’s Single-Cycle Degrees does not transform the foreign title into an Italian title, but it can ensure admission to University Degree courses provided that the foreign title has all of the following elements:

  1. It is an official final degree issued by a a secondary school of the foreign reference system;
  2. It is a title that, in the reference system, allows students to enroll in courses having a similar nature (e.g. from an academic point of view);

  4. In case a national test or final examination is provided for, aimed to admission to secondary school education, such requirement must be met also for admission to Italian courses.

In case the secondary education qualification has been awarded at the end of a period of less than 12 years of education, students will have to submit, apart from the secondary school diploma, the following:

  • An academic certification attesting that all first-year University examinations have been successfully passed (in case the local educational system calls for 11 years of education), and for the first two years of University education in case the local educational system calls for 10 years of education);
  • OR the post-secondary qualification obtained in a Non-University higher education institution;
  • OR Certificates from other Italian universities regarding the completion of a foundation course which compensates for the years of missing education;

For regulations pertaining to specific academic qualifications please see the attachments to the Ministerial Memo regulating the admission of Non-EU citizens http://www.studiare-in-italia.it/studentistranieri/

To enrol, candidates are required to submit the secondary school final degree, in original or “copia conforme” (copy that is declared to be equivalent to the original copy), or a replacement certificate for all legal purposes, together with comparability certificate and verification of the title performed by Cimea, Centro di Informazione sulla Mobilità e le Equivalenze Accademiche (Information Center on Mobility and Academic Equivalences), in agreement with the Università degli Studi di Perugia.

ADMISSION PROCEDURES

Single-cycle and Master Degree Courses can have either a limited/restricted admission policy (on a local or national basis) or an unlimited/open-to-all admission policy. In both cases, passing a verification test of the candidate’s preliminary competencies and knowledge is required.

To be granted admission the student must sit for:

  1. For non-EU students residing abroad: Italian language test (mandatory, except when the candidate is exempted);
  2.

To enrol in a two-year Master’s Degree course, candidates must obtain recognition of their foreign academic degrees. The procedure does not make the foreign qualification an Italian one, but can ensure admission to Second-cycle University study courses following proper evaluation by the Degree Board of Professors of the Degree Course for which the candidate is applying.

The comparability of the qualification will be certified provided that the foreign title has all of the following elements:

  1. It is an official title, First and Second Cycle of the foreign reference system respectively, issued by an official institution within the foreign system;

The outcome on the evaluation of the foreign title by the Board of Professors of the Degree course can admit candidates to the two-year Master’s Degree courses, on the condition that the candidate meets the curricular requirements and individual preparation required to access the course. The outcome of the evaluation can also entail a potential abbreviation of the student’s academic career thanks to the partial recognition of the foreign studies, or the admission, with a reduction of the academic program, to a First-Level Degree course.
