(*) Language requirements for extra-EU students

 

 

The validation process via the Universitaly portal is in charge to the International relations office of the University of Tuscia. Once your pre-enrolment application has been approved by the International Students Desk it becomes visible to the competent Italian Embassy/Consulate.

The acceptance letter ("Modello D") will be uploaded by the International Students Desk on the Universitaly portal directly while validating your pre-enrolment application.

We recommend to schedule the appointment at the competent Italian Embassy/Consulate for the VISA application only if your pre-enrolment application has been validated by the International Students Desk.

 

The decision on issuing a VISA for study purposes is the exclusive jurisdiction of the competent Italian Embassy/Consulate and the acceptance letter ("Modello D") that you will receive in reply to your online application is to be considered a supporting document to the visa assessment procedures, but does not automatically imply the VISA issue. Moreover, if you have not received your visa yet, you can attend classes online, but bear in mind that in order to come to Viterbo you must have received a visa for study. Your enrolment will be definitive only if you obtain the VISA and the consequent residence permit.

 

Considering the Covid-19 emergency and the visa issuance process, the University of Tuscia offers flexible teaching solutions that will allow you to attend classes online for the A.Y. 2021-2022 until you can get to Viterbo.

 

For more information on the provisions for international students for the 2021-2022 academic year, please visit the dedicated page of the Italian Ministry of University and Research.
