ONLINE PRE-ENROLMENT FOR THE ACADEMIC YEAR 2013/14
- Pre-enrolment and admission procedures
The pre-enrolment application must be completed online during the following period: 1st March – 20th August 2013 (until 12:00 midday)
In order to pre-enrol, you must first log in to the portal available at www.unibz.it.
Once registered, you can:
- complete the pre-enrolment application
- upload your language certificates
- enrol to the language assessment tests offered by the Language Centre
- update your personal data.
Once you have sent the application, you should upload the required attachments in the portal. If uploading is not possible, documents can be submitted to the Student secretariat via email or handed in personally.
In the portal, you can visualize the status of your application and your attachments with the help of colours (e.g., missing documents will be highlighted in red).
Pre-enrolment is allowed for more courses.
Evaluation can then only take place on the basis of the documentation you have presented with the application form by the deadline. If there are incomplete applications, the Committee can decide to exclude the candidate from the admission procedure.
You shall attach:
If you have qualifications from abroad you
- a passport-size colour photo;
- a photocopy of a valid identity card or passport (front/back);
- video-recording (see selection procedure);
- copy of the declaration of equivalent value of the study title (for students with qualifications acquired abroad only) – see next paragraph;
- copy of the valid permit of stay for Italy (for Non EU citizens with residence in Italy only) – see next paragraph.
must also deliver – at the latest upon enrolment – the original declaration of equivalent value,
together with the original or an authenticated copy of your secondary school certificate and an official translation into Italian. The declaration of equivalent value is issued by the Italian consulate or embassy abroad and confirms that your qualification would grant you entry to a similar university course in the country in which the qualifications were achieved. The declaration must be applied for as soon as possible since it can often require long processing times.
Non-EU candidates with valid permit to stay for Italy
(see article 39, paragraph 5 of decree no. 286 of 25.07.1998,) apply directly to the University, as described above. In this case, you must submit a copy of your valid permit to stay for Italy ("permesso di soggiorno
" for work, family reasons, political or humanitarian asylum, religious reasons). A permit of stay for study reasons, or a visa for tourism, is not sufficient. If the permit deadline has expired, a renewal request must also be attached. NB: if you do not provide the permit for one reason or another, you will be automatically considered a non-EU citizen living abroad and therefore subject to the admission procedure through the Italian authorities acting in your country of origin.
If you are a non-EU candidate resident abroad, you must carry out the enrolment procedures both through the Italian authorities
(consulate or embassy) in the country in which you obtained or are to obtain your academic qualifications and directly with the university
. The deadlines imposed by the Italian Ministry of Education, Universities and Research (www.study-in-italy.it
) must be respected. Should you not follow this procedure with your local Italian consulate, the application that you delivered direct to the university will be declared null and void. The Italian authorities abroad are the only ones able to accept and send applications to the university.
that non EU-citizens resident abroad can apply for one course only.
In addition to language certification and admission requirements, you must go through a selection procedure in order to access the course.
This is divided into two stages:
- The first stage is an evaluation - by an exam commission - of the documents presented within the pre-enrolment. These documents must be accompanied by a video recording, which should last a maximum of 2 minutes. The film should be of the candidate presenting him or herself as well as analysing critically a two- or three dimensional object of his/her own choice. This recording must be uploaded on the Faculty server within the deadline of Tuesday, 20th August 2013, 12:00 midday. The modalities and the link for the upload will be included in an email, which will be sent to the candidate after the completion of the online pre-enrolment form.
Technical data for the video recording:
- length of the video recording: max. 2 minutes
- resolution 640 x 480 Pixel (4:3) or 640 x 360 Pixel (16:9)
- file size of the video recording max. 150 MB
- format .mov,.mp4, .mpg. or .avi
- file name: surname_name.format (.mov/.mp4/.mpg/.avi)
The exam commission, based on the material provided by each student, will evaluate each student’s attitude, motivation and originality as well as their ability of observation and reflection, and will draw up a list of candidates who will be invited to take part in the second stage of the selection process.
- The second stage consists of a workshop that will take place from 6th to 8th September 2013. During this workshop, candidates will participate in tests that have been designed to evaluate their interdisciplinary curiosity, creativity and predisposition to work in a group.
N.B.: Students from other Italian or foreign universities wishing to transfer to the Free University of Bozen-Bolzano, Faculty of Design and Art, must follow the admission procedures (pre-enrolment by 20th August 2013).
ADMISSION AND PUBBLICATION OF RANKING LISTS
Two admission ranking lists will be drawn up, based on the results of the selection procedure: one for EU citizens (and citizens of other countries who enjoy parity of treatment) and one for non-EU citizens resident abroad.
The ranklists will be published by 9th September 2013 on the Faculty's official notice board as well as on the University's website (www.unibz.it) and are only valid for the academic year for which they have been drawn up.
In order to form these ranklists, the University can only evaluate the documentation presented by the pre-enrolment deadline.
