Applying for a unibz study programme as an Italian citizen living abroad is not difficult at all. You only need to follow the instructions on this page and you will be able to start or continue your studies at unibz.
You can apply during all application periods offered for the study programme in which you are interested.
You need to have a qualification that is equivalent to the Italian secondary school diploma and that has been or will be obtained at the end of at least 12 years of secondary education. If the length of your secondary education cycle is less than 12 years, then the regulations set by the Italian Ministry of Education, University and Research apply.
If in your home country an aptitude test is required to gain access to higher education, you will need to include the results of that test when applying to our University. For some qualifications (e.g. UK and Greek qualifications), the Italian Ministry of Education has set specific admission criteria.
You will have to provide a Statement of comparability issued by the Italian Information Centre on Academic Mobility and Equivalence (CIMEA) to prove that your qualification gives you access to the Italian higher education system. In case you already hold a Declaration of Equivalent Value of your qualification issued by an Italian embassy or consulate, you submit it instead of the statement.
Get in touch with our Advisory Service if you have any question.
You can check which qualifications are required for admission in the page of the master programme in which you are interested. You can apply either with a Diploma Supplement issued by your home university, with a Statement of comparability issued by the Italian Information Centre on Academic Mobility and Equivalence (CIMEA), or with a Declaration of Equivalent Value issued by an Italian embassy or consulate.
Students can apply for an income-based study grant to the Ufficio per il diritto allo studio universitario. The grants vary between €1,400 and €5,800 per year. If students obtain a study grant, they will also get a refund of the tuition fees. The student association sh.asus helps students with the application for this type of scholarship.
Those who, after the first year, get an average grade of 27/30 for their exams, are eligible to apply for scholarships based on merit rather than income.
Italian students living abroad can also apply for scholarships funded by the Ministero degli Affari Esteri (MAE, the Italian Foreign Office).
