Enrolment procedure

After getting to L'Aquila, you'll have to complete your enrolment at the University of L'Aquila, which is the coordinating institution of your MSc programme. 
The enrolment process involves a preliminary online phase to be performed on our university info system "Segreteria Virtuale", which is usually taken care of by the InterMaths consortium.
The process consists of:

  • Account registration

  • Online pre-enrolment (it has nothing to do with the Pre-Enrolment on to get a study visa)

  • Fee payment.

Afterwards, to finalize your online enrolment, you'll have to submit:

  1. Qualifications (i.e., transcript and degree certificate) from your university of origin in their original format.

  2. Verification of your previous university qualifications. To do so, you'll have to submit ONE of the following certificates:

CIMEA Statements of comparability

CIMEA (ENIC/NARIC network) has implemented a service of certification and comparison of Italian and foreign qualifications - note that you'll only need to request a statement of comparability.

Declaration of Value (DoV)

The DoV is a document providing an official description of your academic certificates, duly legalized by the Consular office of the Italian Embassy in the country where such a degree was gained.

Diploma Supplement

You may submit a Diploma Supplement to verify your previous qualification only if it is issued by the institution where you gained your undergraduate degree.

Direct Verification via UAQ

Starting this year (2024 edition) you may entitle the University of L'Aquila to contact the institution where you obtained your previous degree and verify the genuine nature of your qualifications. Further information about this procedure will be emailed to you by our staff.

Note that some local Diplomatic-consular missions might still require you to obtain a Declaration of Value (DoV) or a CIMEA statement before they issue your study visa, even though they know that our university accepts other types of verification (any of the 4 listed above).

If that is the case, you will have to go through the DoV/CIMEA request process, otherwise, you will never obtain any visa from that specific embassy. Please check in good time in advance the particular requirements in force at the Diplomatic-consular you're about to visit for your visa.
