Italian Ministry of Education, Universities and Research (MIUR): Entry Requirements
Students holding a bachelorâs degree from an institution outside Italy must contact the Italian embassy or consulate in the country where the degree was issued and ask for the perfezionamento documenti, which consists of:
- An Italian translation, made by a certified translator, of your bachelorâs degree diploma.
- An Italian translation, made by a certified translator, of your academic transcripts.
- Dichiarazione di valore in loco (Declaration of Value) of your bachelorâs degree. The Dichiarazione di valore in loco is a document attesting that the academic qualification you earned is valid for enrollment in Italian universities and academies.

The notarized and translated documents, as well as the Dichiarazione di valore in loco, will either be sent to NABA by your Italian consulate or embassy, or will be directly issued to you. In the latter case, you need to submit them to NABAâs International Admissions Office as quickly as possible.
FOR NON-EUROPEAN STUDENTS APPLYING FOR THE TWO-YEAR MA
Application for a Student Visa to Italy
Once you have completed the pre-enrollment procedure, you will receive an official acceptance letter from NABA, including information on the status of your admission and possible arrival date in Italy.
Before applying for a student visa, you must first obtain your pre-enrollment form (modello A bis) from your Italian embassy or consulate, fill it out, and submit it to the embassy/consulate. It is thus essential to complete your pre-enrollment form according to the deadlines established by the embassy/consulate. The deadline to submit the A bis pre-enrollment form varies each year according to Italian Ministry of Education (MIUR) guidelines, so be sure to confirm the date with your local Italian embassy or consulate. The pre-enrollment window is in the spring, usually including May and June of each year.
