Admission to UniME

IMPORTANT: Following the preventive measures to counter the spread of the Covid-19 pandemic, Italian Diplomatic and Consular Authorities have temporarily suspended the activity of its Visa Section until further notice. Pre-enrolment procedures and D visa (Visa for study) are suspended. Students applications for pre-evaluation may be delayed. 

All international students may enrol in one of the 1st, 2nd and 3rd cycle programmes of the Italian University System. To be eligible for enrolment in the Italian University system, students must be at least 17 years old and have completed 12 years of schooling.

The evaluation of foreign qualifications presented for enrolment in a degree course is the exclusive jurisdiction of each University.

The decision on the issuance of a visa for study purposes is the exclusive jurisdiction of the Diplomatic/Consular Authorities. Documentation produced by Universities for candidates to enrol in degree courses in the process of requesting visas is to be considered only a support for the evaluation procedures of the diplomatic missions, and does not automatically imply the issuance of the visa.

Important! When you send your application, please use your own email address to avoid confusion.

Students are allowed to submit applications for three different programmes. Please choose the programmes according to your previous studies and review the admission requirements before submitting your application.

If you applied to UniME last year and received an acceptance letter, it is no longer valid.  You need to reapply this year again.

Please note:  the deadline for applying is June 18, 2020. No applications will be accepted after that date.

Please note that the  documents you need to attach must be in English or translated into Italian by the Italian Diplomatic/Consular representation abroad.
