BACHELOR PROGRAMS 2020/21 AY
SECONDARY SCHOOL DIPLOMA REQUIREMENTS
In case of admission, students will receive a conditional offer in the admission “Result” on My Application. All the admitted candidates MUST refer to their own admission result for the complete list of requirements to be presented within the established deadlines.
Enrolled students must provide a valid secondary school diploma suitable for access to the 1st cycle of academic studies (i.e. Bachelor programs) in the country to which the educational system of the school refers by the end of July 2020. A minimum final high school leaving score is not required. The final diploma must be always provided in original, and with an official translation (in Italian or English) when required.
In order to be considered valid, all the secondary school diplomas must be awarded after at least 12 years of education (starting from the first year of primary school) and after at least 2 full years of attendance in the educational system to which the final diploma refers. Diplomas obtained after only 1 year of attendance, therefore, will not be considered valid for enrollment.
Diplomas awarded after 10 or 11 years of studies MUST be integrated with 2 full years of university with all the exams passed (for 10-year diplomas), or 1 full year of university with all the exams passed (for 11-year diplomas). The years of integration must be fulfilled in accredited and recognized universities, with at least the equivalent of 60 ECTS per year. Diplomas released in December (i.e. South American diplomas), must be obtained in the year before the enrollment (i.e. diploma awarded in December 2019 for the enrollment to 2020/2021 ay).
Please note that if the national system of education requires a qualifying academic exam for university admission (i.e. Gaokao, Matura, Selectividad, Vestibular, YKS (TYT and AYT) Veveosi Prosvasis, etc.), candidates MUST pass this exam in order to enroll in Italian universities (a minimum grade is not required). These exams are usually requested by the Italian Authorities (Embassy/Consulate/Italian Cultural Institute) in order to issue Declarations of Value and study visas.
When required in the admission result, the Declaration of Value (DoV) is a compulsory requirement for the secondary school diploma. If not requested in the admission result, non-EU applicants are kindly invited to check anyway with the Italian Authorities (Embassy/Consulate/Italian Cultural Institute) in their country if a Declaration of Value would still be required for the study visa procedure.
