Application for international students
You are an international student if you hold a foreign study qualification/degree - your citizenship is irrelevant.
The enrolment procedure for international students holding a foreign study qualification is managed online as specified in the instructions under Step 3 - Welcome and enrolment at UniTo. Please regularly check this page and the above page for updates.
If you are a non-EU candidate residing abroad or a Chinese student of the “Marco Polo” program holding a qualification issued by a non-Italian High School or University and you wish to register for the admission test (IMAT) for the postgraduate 6-year degree program in Medicine and Surgery, please refer to the page Step 2 - Apply for a visa for study purposes.
Moreover, we recommend you to read the fact sheet and to fill in the disclaimer. The disclaimer must be filled out and signed before your arrival in Italy or before completing the enrolment procedure at the University of Turin.
For the academic year 2020-2021 UniTO ensures international students flexible learning resources, addressing both the needs of social distancing in the academic environment and the current uncertainties of international travel. If the current safety conditions do not allow you to leave your home country you can start the semester at home and attend UniTO’s courses online from home. This way, departure will be postponed and the "physical/presence" will start when conditions will allow it.
Information on the scheduling of each degree program is available on individual Departments, Schools and Degree Programs’ webpages. Make sure to check the teaching provisions and timetable for your degree program and for each individual course on the following websites:
For further information on teaching provisions and timetables, please contact the competent International Office for the degree program of your interest in each university centre (“Polo”):

Thanks to the Buddy Project, you can be supported by an Italian student enrolled at UniTo who will guide you through the administrative procedures in the University offices, the main University facilities and buildings, UniTO website, housing.
Visit this sections regularly and the Buddy project webpage for updates.
If you have doubts about how to register for classes and exams, how to fill your student career plan and edumeter evaluation surveys, we advise you to visit the page of the Mentorship Project, where you can find useful tutorials for all students starting their career in UniTO for the first time.
Considering the impact of COVID-19 around the world and in order to support international students, the University of Turin has defined a new method to ask for the reduction of the tution fees for the a.y. 2020-2021 based on two options:
- by requesting to the University to calculate the full-comprehensive contribution according to your Country’s GDP – Gross Domestic Product.
- by requesting the "ISEE parificato"
For further information please refer to the Tuition fees webpage and contact our Tuition Fees Desk (“Sezione Diritto allo Studio”).
