      If you hold a qualification (high school diploma or equivalent) obtained after 12 years of global schooling you can enrol at an Italian university provided that it grants access, in the foreign education system of reference, to a degree program equivalent to the Italian program you wish to enrol at.

      Moreover, these qualifications grant access to Italian universities only if obtained after attending at least the last two years in the foreign education system of reference. If you attended the last two years in an institution belonging to a foreign education system, you also have to provide your certificate of school subjects (transcript) of at least the last two years, provided with a certified translation into Italian (the translation into Italian is not required if the original document is issued in English, French or Spanish) and legalization (if required).

      If you have attended a pre-school year, it can be included in calculating the 12 necessary years to access Italian universities if the attendance of the pre-school year was mandatory and the course program included the teaching of the native language of the country and basic arithmetic. In this case, the attendance of the pre-school year has to be mentioned and included among your study documents.

      If you hold a qualification obtained after 11 or 10 years of global schooling please be aware that it does not allow access to Italian universities, unless you satisfy one of the following additional conditions:

      • you attended one year (in case of 11 years) or two (in case of 10 years) years of university studies and took all the exams foreseen by the first year (in case of 11 years) or the first two years (in case of 10 years) of the degree program. In this case, you also have to provide the original/certified copy of your transcript of Records with a certified translation into Italian (the translation into Italian is not required if the original document is issued in English, French or Spanish) and legalization (if required)
      • you obtained a post-secondary qualification to compensate for any missing years of secondary education in a subject related to the degree program you wish to enrol for. In this case, you also have to provide the original/certified copy of your transcript of Records with a certified translation into Italian (the translation into Italian is not required if the original document is issued in English, French or Spanish) and legalization (if required)
      • you attended a preparatory program (Foundation program) at the University of Turin or at another Italian or foreign institution, to compensate the missing year of schooling (in case of 11 years). In this case, you also have to provide a copy of the certificate stating that you have successfully completed the Foundation program as well as all the exams, provided with a certified translation into Italian (the translation into Italian is not required if the original document is issued in English, French or Spanish) and legalization (if required)
