International students enrolling in single courses

How to enrol

International students can enrol in a single course according to the same deadlines and procedures as for Italian students, provided that they submit their secondary school diploma or first- or second-level university degree with enrolment documents.

The educational qualification must be translated into Italian by an official translator, legalized by competent authorities in accordance with current legislation, and accompanied by a statement of validity (Dichiarazione di valore in loco) issued by the Italian diplomatic mission in the country in which it was granted.

Furthermore, non-EU students who reside abroad and intend to follow one or more courses can only enrol by submitting their application to Italian diplomatic missions within the deadlines established by ministerial regulations.

The documentation shall be delivered to the International Students Office, by appointment.

Fees

International students will pay the same fees as Italian students.

International students who take part in interuniversity programmes, or are enrolled in foreign universities that have specific agreements with the University of Milan, and holders of scholarships granted by the Italian government are exempt from enrolment fees, though they must pay a 26 euro contribution for administrative costs.

Non-European students residing abroad

Non-EU citizens who reside abroad and intend to follow one or more courses can enrol by submitting their application to Italian diplomatic missions within the deadlines established by ministerial regulations.

After enrolling, they shall hand in the documentation to the International Students desk by making appointment on Infostudenti.
