Enrolment procedure

Upon arrival in Italy, 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 (registration on our university info system, online pre-enrolment and fee payment), which is usually taken care of by our InterMaths team.
To finalize your enrolment, you'll then have to submit your translated and legalized qualifications, which include, depending on the case, ONE of the following:

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 degree was gained.

CIMEA Statements of comparability

CIMEA has implemented a service of certification and comparison of Italian and foreign qualifications, with a view to rendering qualifications increasingly more comprehensible and recognizable.

Diploma Supplement

You may submit a Diploma Supplement (a document accompanying a higher education diploma ) to certify your previous qualification only if you gained your undergraduate degree from an EU institution issuing Diploma Supplements.
Note that the local Diplomatic-consular mission might still require that you obtain a Declaration of Value (DoV) in order to issue your study visa, although our university accepts either CIMEA or DoV as of academic year 2020/2021. If that is the case, you will have to go through the DoV request process instead of the CIMEA statements, which can be much lenghtier, so make sure you start the whole process in good time in advance.
