Application for international students

You are an international student if you hold a foreign qualification/degree - your citizenship is irrelevant.

 

Step by step registration procedure for international students.

 

Step 1 - Apply@UniTO

If you have a qualification issued by a non-Italian High School or University and you wish to apply for an undergraduate, postgraduate, 5-year or 6-year degree program, the online application procedure Apply@Unito is mandatory.

The application received between 1st September and 15th October 2019 will receive a feedback within the enrolment deadlines for the a.y. 2019-2020.

Information on the calls for application for the a.y. 2020-2021 will be published on this page by the end of December 2019.

Required documents for enrolment

Please note that if upon enrolment you haven’t submitted all required documents for enrolment at the Welcome Point you will be placed on conditional enrolment (you may attend classes, but you will not be able to fulfill your “piano carriera” nor to take any exam) and you will need to submit the missing documents within 60 days (30 days for postgraduate degree programs not requiring an admission exam), otherwise your enrolment will be cancelled.

Step 2 - Register to the UniTO web portal

Once you have submitted your application through Apply@Unito, register on the UniTO website www.unito.it. Download the following tutorial to be guided step by step in the procedure:

Step 3a - Register for admission test

If your degree program requires an admission exam you should know that admission tests requirements vary depending on the degree program you are applying for. Check the section “Entry requirements” by selecting your degree program.

Please consider the following program categories:

  • Degree programs requiring a national admission exam ("Medicina e chirurgia" Italian - Dentistry or Veterinary medicine): it was mandatory to sign up for the admission test first on the Universitaly website - from 3rd July to 25th July 2019 - and then on UniTO website within the deadlines. For Medicine and Surgery taught in English, it was mandatory to sign up for the IMAT test on Universitaly website within the deadlines (from 3rd July to 25th July 2019).
  • Degree programs requiring a local admission exam: it is mandatory to sign up for the admission test on UniTO website, as specified in the degree programs’ calls for applications, by selecting the degree program you are interested in.
  • Postgraduate degree programs with admission exam: it is mandatory to register for and to pass the admission test, as specified in the degree programs’ calls for application, by selecting the degree program you are interested in.
Step 3b - Register for TARM dedicated to international students

For undergraduate degree programs without admission exam it is mandatory to register for the TARM reserved to international students. Find out more about the different types of TARM and procedures  for students having Non-Italian qualifications.

 

Postgraduate degree programs without admission exam require no admission test nor a TARM test. Applicants are evaluated by the Department Evaluation Boards through interviews.

Orientation meetings

Orientation meetings are organised for international students who have been admitted to the University of Turin to present the services offered by the University as well as giving information on the procedures and administrative deadlines, the University’s administrative structure and the Italian language course.

The orientation meetings are usually held in September each year. The calendar for the a.y. 2020-2021 will be published on this page by the end of August 2020.
