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.
