This “pre-enrolment application” is made exclusively through the Universitaly portal. 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.
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 and is the responsibility of the University and is concluded after the pre-enrolment and visa issuing phases.
Now you have to wait for a communication from the University confirming your application. In case documents are missing, you will receive a request for supplementation.
An international certificate attesting your level of knowledge of the English language (IELTS, TOEFL, Cambridge, etc.) is useful for the issue of the visa by the diplomatic/consular representation.
You can pre-register for several courses at the same time, there is no maximum number to be respected. However, some groups of courses are accessed through the same selection process and you can therefore only apply for a certain number of courses (preferences).
