  3. The third step (STEP B) requires candidates to upload a personal passport photo and a soft copy of their passport before indicating the State and the Italian representation where they will perform the visa process, and the reason for their application.
  4. Then they must select the Italian university where they are going to enroll together with type and name of the study programme concerned. The language box enables you to filter the courses and curricula taught in the chosen language. The correct answers are as follows:

VISA ISSUANCE

Upon university confirmation, the Italian official Representation you have indicated is going to check and evaluate your request according to the relevant specific provisions for visa issuance.

Actually, issuance of study visa depends on criteria approved yearly by Italian Government: universities are not concerned with this step of the process, hence only Italian official Representations are in charge of assessing and approving your application for study visa.

The deadline for obtaining the study visa is 30 November 2020.

During the visa issuance process, candidates are allowed to sit both Italian language proficiency examination (if required) and the admission test (if required) under condition of obtaining the visa.
The Italian language exam will be offered online.

The selective admission tests for the listed study programmes must be taken in presence:

  • Combined master's degree in Medicine and surgery
  • Combined master's degree in Dentistry
  • bachelor's degrees in Health professions

Candidates are also allowed to attend classes from September 2020 onwards, which will be held at a distance or in presence in accordance with future Italian Government and Universities boars' decisions with the aim of safeguarding individual and public health.
 

Registered applicants can access Universitaly portal using their credentials and check their request status.
