Pre-enrollments and student visas

ENROLLMENT TO ITALIAN UNIVERSITIES FOR FOREIGN STUDENTS (ACADEMIC YEAR 2024-2025)

 

STEP 1: PRE-ENROLLMENT

We inform all students that pre-enrollment to Italian universities for the academic year 2024-2025 is now open. Interested foreign students must register on the website www.universitaly.it and follow the instructions.

Once the pre-enrollment confirmation is received through the portal, the student can apply for a study visa at the Embassy. All information is available at point 2 of this page.

For further information and assistance, students can contact the Uni-Italy Vietnam office (https://en.uni-italia.vn/) – at the address info@uni-italia.vn or at the number +84 2438240579 – and the Cultural Office of the Embassy – at the address culturale.hanoi@esteri.it or at the number +84 2438256256, int. 116.

 

STEP 2: STUDY VISAS

In order to apply for a study visa to Italy (which costs €50, to be paid in cash in VND at the exchange rate  valid at the time of the request), the following documentation must be submitted all together:

  1. Visa application form D;
  2. Original passport and photocopy (note that the passport must be valid for at least 3 months beyond the visa duration);
  3. Two photographs;
  4. Copy of the pre-enrollment receipt through the portal www.universitaly.it, or other documentation in the case of pre-enrollment to post-diploma Technical Specialization Courses organized by Higher Technical Institutes;
  5. Flight reservation and hotel reservation for the first days in Italy;
  6. Health insurance for the first month of stay, with a minimum coverage of €30,000, valid in the Schengen area and also covering Covid-19 cases;
  7. If required by the University, a declaration of value (to be requested at the Embassy) of the possessed academic title;
  8. Proof of economic means for the stay in Italy (minimum amount: not less than €467.25 per month, equivalent to €6,079.45 per year). These means must be proven through personal or family economic guarantees and cannot be demonstrated through bank guarantees, surety policies, cash, or guarantees provided by third parties. The above amount may be revised in the case of a scholarship actually granted. Simply applying for an Italian government scholarship does not constitute a document of economic coverage;
  9. Availability of the necessary amount for repatriation, also provable through a return ticket;
  10. Availability of suitable accommodation in Italy or a declaration of hospitality (click here for the template);
  11. If required by the University, evidence of adequate knowledge of the Italian language to undertake studies in Italian (at least B2 level);
  12. In the case of enrollment in English-taught courses, a specific legalized certification (TOEFL/IELTS) or a Degree Certificate, indicating that the student graduated in English or that the Degree Course was attended in English-speaking countries.

N.B.

The documentation must be submitted to the Embassy at least 15 days before departure. Any urgent situations must be appropriately justified and the Embassy reserves the right to evaluate them.

If the documentation to be submitted for the visa application is in Vietnamese, it must be translated into Italian or English by an authorized translator.

Documents in Vietnamese for use in Italy (for example, for scholarship applications) must be legalized at the Consular Department of the Vietnamese Ministry of Foreign Affairs (40 Tran Phu, Ba Dinh, Hanoi) and translated into Italian by an authorized translator.

Visa applications can be submitted to the Embassy’s Visa Office in the following ways:

  • Personally by students, by appointment to be taken by writing to visti.hanoi@esteri.it;
  • Through Uni-Italia Vietnam (9 Le Phung Hieu, Hoan Kiem, Hanoi; tel: +84 2438240579; email: info@uni-italia.vn), an agency recognized by the Italian Ministry of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation that provides paid orientation and assistance services to students who wish to attend Italian universities.

For the following categories of courses, the documentation must be submitted by November 29, 2024, unless the educational institutions establish different deadlines due to their autonomy:

  • Bachelor’s degree;
  • Master’s degree (biennial or single cycle);
  • Individual academic courses;
  • Courses of Higher Education Institutions in Art, Music and Dance (AFAM);
  • Higher Schools for Linguistic Mediators (SSML)

For University Masters, Ph.D. programs, courses of Schools of Specialization, Italian language and culture courses, and preparatory courses for AFAM, the documentation must be submitted by the deadlines established by the educational institution that provides the course.

Students can also contact the international mobility offices of Vietnamese universities for further information and assistance.
