How to apply to university in Italy

As a member of the EU, you can apply for university in Italy in the same way as Italian students, however, you first need to contact the Italian Embassy in the UK to receive a Letter of Academic Eligibility and Suitability. Once you've received this you can begin to send applications to the universities.


You'll need to research or contact the university (or universities) directly to find about their entry requirements and application deadlines; they're usually between January and April.

You then need to submit your application(s) to each Italian university, via the Italian Consulate in the UK, along with any appropriate documentation, such as education transcripts. 

Some universities may require you to submit an entrance exam, particularly for more competitive courses such as health and medicine, veterinary science, education and architecture.
