To be eligible for enrollment in the Italian university system, you must be at least 17 years old and have completed 12 years of schooling.
Students with Italian nationality or of another EU country or permanent residents in Italy may apply directly to their chosen university or institution of higher education.
Information about the enrollment procedures must be sourced at each university.
Students can enroll to Italian Universities through an online registration procedure at each University.
Once the registration is completed, each student will receive an identification number (matricola) which will be required to pay university taxes and to register for exams.
Once you have selected your Italian degree program, verify if it requires an admission test. Entry to undergraduate degree programs can either be restricted or open, or can be subject to a motivational test or entry examination.
The calendar of admission tests can be found on the universities’ websites.
A national entry test is required to attend the following university programs:
- Medicine and Surgery
- Veterinary Medicine
- Health Care Professions
- Educational Sciences
