Your Italian Journey Blog
If are you planning to come to Italy to study at Italian University I suggest you read the below article.
To be eligible for enrollment in the Italian university system, you must be at least 17 years old and have completed 12 years of schooling.
Students with Italian nationality or another EU country or permanent residents in Italy may apply directly to their chosen university or institution of higher education.
You can read about the enrollment procedures on each University website.
Students can enrol at Italian Universities through an online registration procedure at each University.
Once the registration is completed, each student will receive an identification number (matricola) required to pay university taxes and register for exams.
Once you have selected your Italian degree program, verify if it requires an admission test. Entry to undergraduate degree programs can either be restricted or open or subject to a motivational test or entrance examination.
A national entry test is required to attend the following university programs:
Any University or Institution of Higher Education may require admission tests for other courses in addition to those listed.
Original pre-enrollment application and two copies;
The pre-enrollment application must be submitted through the Italian diplomatic or consular representation in your country, usually from February to the end of July. Please check on the website of the competent Italian Foreign Mission in your country.
