EU applicants are: EU residents, non-EU citizens holding residency in Italy, Italians holding degrees abroad, political refugees, applicants holding dual citizenship, citizens of Norway, Iceland, Liechtenstein, Switzerland, Republic of San Marino, and Holy See.

Non-EU students resident abroad (together with the online registration procedures via internet, through the Student Web Service) must pre-register through the relevant Italian representative office.

Student holding diplomas issued by foreign institutions and schools must provide a translation, legalisation, and conversion in percentage marks of their final academic score through Italian diplomatic offices abroad, which should also issue them a validity declaration of their diploma/degree certificate.


Non-EU foreign students who intend to enrol in a three-year undergraduate programme will have to take the Italian language test at Università Iuav di Venezia before the admission test.


Candidates who pass the selection tests that are set out in the individual Competition Notices then fall into a ranking list. From here, they can officially register in the university.

For foreign students coming from particularly poor countries, the assessment of the financial status is carried out based on the certification provided by the Italian representative office in the country of provenance, indicating that the student does not belong to a known high-income family. This certification can also be issued by foreign universities linked by agreements or conventions to Italian ones; or by Italian institutions authorised to provide the guarantee of financial coverage under the current provisions concerning the registration of foreign students in Italian universities.


All students from countries that are not listed above must legalise all documents issued in their country of origin through the Italian Embassy or Consulate.

A copy of his political refugee status certificate must be attached to the application.
