The enrolment procedure is necessary for obtaining the enrolment number, i.e. the number with which the student is identified, enabling him to frequent courses, book and take examinations and access all the services made available by the University.
To enrol a non-EU citizen residing overseas must:
- take and pass Italian language examinations at the university where he intends to enrol, excepting specific exonerations
- take and pass specific admission tests (only for some courses)
- be in possession of a valid residence permit
- pay university fees. When presenting the enrolment application, the Secretariat will give the student the payment slips, which will have to be paid in accordance with the procedures and deadlines of the chosen university.
The fees charged by Italy’s university system are:
- University fee (to be paid in two instalments or all at once), varying according to the university and the course chosen
- Regional study tax, regional tax accruing to the University, which varies from year to year and according to the chosen University
- Stamp duty
Every university establishes contribution brackets based on income and the student’s family situation. To find out what bracket you are in, and consequently the amount to be paid, the student must fill in, with or without the help of a tax assistance centre (CAF), the “Dichiarazione sostitutiva unica”, a document that gives the ISEE (Equivalent Financial Situation Index) in order to be able to obtain welfare benefits, including a reduction in fees.
