Prepare documents for the enrolment

Admissions to Laurea (equivalent to Bachelor of Science) programmes starting in October are open to undergraduates who by the end of August will have a recognized final diploma of secondary studies.


Prepare your documents

In order to complete the enrolment procedures you need to prepare the following documents in the country where the educational system of the school issuing your diploma belongs to (for example: for a school with British educational system in Peruvian territory the authorities of reference are those of the UK). You will then consign the original documents upon official enrolment. Documents at point 1, 3, 4 and 7 must be duly apostilled (only if the country where the diploma has been achieved is part of the Hague Convention abolishing requirement for legalization of foreign public documents). Apostilles authenticate the seals and signatures of officials on public documents, so that they can be recognized in foreign countries that are parties of the Convention. Please view the list of countries that have signed the Convention and the authority in charge of Apostille. If your country is not part of the list, documents at point 1, 3, 4 and 7 must be legalized by the Italian Diplomatic representatives.
