Do you want to enroll at the University of Naples and are you a NON-EUROPEAN STUDENT?
The university pre-enrolment application is the first step to be taken by a candidate in order to apply for a visa for study purposes at an Italian diplomatic representation [https://vistoperitalia.esteri.it/home.aspx]
The “university pre-enrolment” procedure is different and distinct from that of “enrolment”, which will take place subsequently and on the basis of procedures within each individual university, without the involvement of diplomatic representations.
What is the difference between university pre-enrolment and enrolment?
University pre-enrolment is a compulsory procedure, which is the responsibility of the Embassy and precedes the phase of issuing the study visa and the university enrolment phases; it concerns foreign students abroad and must be concluded before the student’s enrolment procedure at the chosen university.
Enrolment is the procedure for registering the student (matriculation) and is the responsibility of the University and is concluded after the pre-enrolment and visa issuing phases.
How can I pre-register?
The pre-enrolment application is made exclusively through the Universitaly portal (visit https://www.universitaly.it/). The deadline for applying to University of Naples Federico II is July 15, 2023.

Contact the Embassy / Consulate well in advance to find out the requirements for obtaining an entry visa and make an appointment if necessary.
Be aware that pre-enrolment alone does not grant admission to degree programmes. In order to matriculate you also need to take and pass the verifications of the entry requirements and the admission procedures set for the degree programme of your interest.
Important! The University of Naples Federico II does not issue admission letters for obtaining a visa.
You must take the following documents to the Italian Embassy:
- the summary of the pre-enrolment application submitted through Universitaly and validated by the University of Naples Federico II;
- any language competence certificates (see information on how to meet the Italian language requirement);
- the documents required for the visa application, including a health insurance policy where applicable;
- the required documents if you hold a foreign qualification.

Are you a NON-EUROPEAN STUDENT WITH NO VISA REQUIREMENT?
Non-European candidates, wherever they reside and regularly residing in Italy or in a European Union country, have unrestricted access to university courses if they hold a qualification corresponding to the required Italian qualification.
If you are a non-European student without the need for a visa and regularly residing in Italy with a regular study visa, you may present your academic documents directly to the Coordinator of the Course in which you wish to enrol. You will therefore not need to pre-register on the Universitaly Portal.
Documents to be sent for the evaluation of the foreign qualification

– any declarations of value issued by the competent diplomatic representations
Do I have to take the Italian language knowledge test?
1. If you choose a three-year degree course, magistral degree course or single-cycle magistral degree course in ITALIAN, a B2 level Italian language proficiency is required, which must be demonstrated in the following ways:
– by uploading to the Universitaly portal when filling out the pre-enrolment application one of the certifications of competence in Italian language in grades no lower than level B2 of the Council of Europe, issued within the CLIQ (Certificazione Lingua Italiana di Qualità) quality system, which brings together in association the current certifying bodies (University for Foreigners of Perugia, University for Foreigners of Siena, Roma Tre University, Società “Dante Alighieri”), as well as issued by the University for Foreigners “Dante Alighieri” of Reggio Calabria, also in agreement with Italian Cultural Institutes abroad or other accredited bodies. These certifications may have been obtained in the country of origin, in affiliated examination venues around the world;
– if you are not in possession of one of the above-mentioned Council of Europe level B2 Italian language proficiency certifications, you have to demonstrate your language proficiency through an Italian language proficiency test. Procedures and timing will be communicated by e-mail by the coordinator of the chosen course. The result of the language proficiency assessment must be certified in the pre-enrolment application.
Important: those who satisfy at least one of the requirements listed on p. 11 are exempt from the Italian language knowledge test.
2.If you choose a three-year, five-year or single-cycle degree course in ENGLISH, level B2 Italian language proficiency is not required. Remember that an international certificate attesting to the level of English language skills (IELTS, TOEFL, Cambridge, etc.) is useful for the issue of the visa by the diplomatic/consular Representation.
How does admission to the course of study work?
First-cycle and single-cycle degree courses may be reserved access or not (at local or national level). If the degree course is reserved access, you have to register for the admission test; admission to the degree course depends on the test score and consequently on the position in the ranking with respect to the other candidates. To find out how and when to register for the admission test, download and read the announcement on the degree course website.

Why apply for a visa?
A visa is a document that you can apply for at the Italian embassy or consulate offices in your country of residence and that is needed for entry into Italy.
Are you a regularly pre-enrolled student whose application has been validated by the receiving higher education institution within the UNIVERSITALY portal?
The diplomatic-consular Representations will issue a type “D” visa for STUDY “Immatricolazione Università”.
Are you a regularly pre-enrolled student and have you received confirmation from the University but with reservations (because you are not yet in physical possession of the relevant local qualification or because you are waiting to take the admission or language exam)?
The diplomatic-consular Representations will, in any case, issue a type “D” visa for STUDY “University matriculation” in order to allow you to sit the University/AFAM entrance examinations and to proceed, if you pass the selection tests, with subsequent matriculation without having to return to your country of origin.
Do the admission tests or language examinations take place before you obtain your final school-leaving certificate or at a time that does not allow you to complete your pre-enrolment?
You will have to apply for a short-term entry visa (Uniform Schengen Visa for stays of less than 90 days).
The competent diplomatic-consular Representation will issue a national entry visa for STUDY “University matriculation”, multiple entry, valid for 365 days only following your admission to participate in your chosen course, once you have returned to your country of origin.
When is the STUDY visa granted?
Only for enrolment in a university degree course, single-cycle degree course or master’s degree course, and in no case is this visa issued to foreigners enrolled in academic years subsequent to the year of enrolment.
What are the requirements for obtaining a visa for STUDY purposes?
a) Economic means of subsistence for the planned stay (amount of €467.65 per month for each month of the academic year, equal to €6,079.45 per year) proven by means of personal financial guarantees or those of parents or Italian or foreign citizens legally residing in Italian territory, or provided by Italian institutions and bodies of proven credit.
b) The availability of the sum needed for repatriation, which can also be proven by showing the return ticket.

Why apply for a residence permit?
Non-European Union (non-EU) students enrolled on courses of study or individual lessons who intend to stay in Italy for more than 90 days must apply for a residence permit.
The residence permit is the document that allows a foreign national to legally reside in the territory of the Italian State. Once he has entered Italy, the latter must apply for a residency permit within 8 days, thanks to which he will be able to reside legally in Italy for a variable period of time and carry out the activities indicated in the document. The latter is issued by the Questura (police headquarters) of the province in which the foreign national is located and allows, amongst other things
– access to rights and services dedicated to foreigners
– registration in the registry office and the issuance of an identity card and tax code, thanks to which they can request and use the services provided by the national health service.
It must be requested by all non-European citizens and stateless persons, i.e. those who do not have a nationality, within 8 working days from the date of entry into Italy. On the other hand, it is not necessary for those belonging to one of the European Union Member States, who can therefore enter Italy without having to present a passport or entry visa.
