Application for international students

In consideration of the Covid-19 emergency, the whole enrolment procedure for international students holding a foreign study qualification for the a.y. 2020-2021 will be managed online. Therefore you are not required to come to the University of Turin offices in person and we kindly recommend you to follow the instructions that are constantly updated under “Step 3 - Welcome and enrolment at UniTO “ to guide you through the enrolment process. Please be aware that in order to complete the enrolment procedure, the payment of the enrolment fee is required, but you will be allowed to pay it only after that your enrolment request has been verified by the International Students Desk. Meanwhile, make sure to verify the teaching provisions and timetables for the degree program of your interest to attend classes.

If you are a non-EU applicant residing abroad, be aware that you can attend classes online, but in order to come to Turin you must have received a visa for study. Your enrolment will be definitive only if you obtain the visa and the consequent residence permit.
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.

Step 2 - Apply for a visa for study purposes

If you do not need a visa to come to Italy and enrol at UniTo, please skip this step and proceed to step 3.

 

If you are a non-EU citizen residing abroad who submitted the application online, you have to submit your pre-enrollment and visa application (type D for University enrolment) via Universitaly portal only within September 4th 2020 or you will not be allowed to go on with the next steps of the enrolment.

 

The following applications via Universitaly are not accepted:

  • all applications submitted after September 4th 2020;
  • all applications submitted by candidates who failed to submit the online application via Apply@UniTo within the deadlines
  • all applications submitted by candidates whose online application viaApply@UniTo received a negative feedback.

In consideration of the Covid-19 emergency, all pre-enrolment and visa applications have indeed to be submitted online via Universitaly portal where you have to:

  • register and fill in your personal data;
  • submit your pre-enrollment application for the degree program of your interest (the same you applied for via Apply@UniTo) and make sure to attach:
    • the same documents you uploaded on Apply@UniTo and, if meanwhile you obtained your high school diploma or degree, your high school diploma or degree certificate as well
    • Italian language certification (B2 level or higher) if you applied for an undergraduate or a 5-year postgraduate degree program not requiring an admission exam taught in Italian and/or English language certification (B2 level or higher) if you applied for an undergraduate degree program not requiring an admission exam taught in English), if you hold any

 

We invite you to submit your application via Universitaly portal as soon as possible within September 4th 2020, since the deadline for all visa issuing procedures by the competent Italian Embassy/Consulate is November 30th 2020, unless otherwise specified by the Italian Ministry of University and Research.

Once your pre-enrolment application has been submitted via Universitaly portal, it is validated by the International Students Desk and becomes visible to the competent Italian Embassy/Consulate that will contact you for the study-visa application.

 

Considering the high number of pre-enrolment applications received by the office the validation process via Universitaly portal may take longer than expected, therefore we kindly recommend to schedule the appointment at the competent Italian Embassy/Consulate for the visa application only if your pre-enrolment application has been validated by the International Students Desk.

Considering the Covid-19 emergency and the visa issuance process, the University of Turin offers flexible teaching solutions that will allow you to attend classes online for the a.y. 2020-2021 until you can get to Turin. For further information please visit the dedicated webpage (currently Italian version only).

 

The decision on issuing a visa for study purposes is the exclusive jurisdiction of the competent Italian Embassy/Consulate and the acceptance letter ("Modello D") that you received in reply to your online application Apply@UniTo is to be considered a supporting document to the visa assessment procedures, but does not automatically imply the visa issue. Moreover, if you have not received your visa yet, you can attend classes online, but bear in mind that in order to come to Turin you must have received a visa for study. Your enrolment will be definitive only if you obtain the visa and the consequent residence permit.

If your online application submitted via Apply@UniTo received a positive feedback but you have not received the acceptance letter ("Modello D") yet, it will be uploaded by the International Students Desk on the Universitaly portal directly while validating your pre-enrolment application.

 

For more information on the provisions for international students for the 2020-2021 academic year, please visit the dedicated page of the Italian Ministry of University and Research.
