Study visa Extra EU
Students from outside the European Union who wish to study in Italy must apply for a study visa at the Italian consulate in their country of residence.
Citizens of many countries do not need to apply for a study visa, but can stay in Italy for up to three months on a tourist visa. For longer stays, a study visa (or any other long-term visa) is required.
We are able to provide our students with all the information and support needed to obtain a study visa. Students who wish to apply for a study visa can use the enrolment forms of our school.
To apply for a study visa these documents are required:
In some cases it is possible to apply for a renewable multi-annual visa to continue the course.
Students who hold a visa are required to fill in and send the residence permit kit available at post offices within 8 days of arrival in Italy.
Students cannot change the duration and type of the course once they obtain the visa.
Should the visa be refused, 92% of the course fee can be refunded upon presentation of the letter of refusal from the consulate.
For further information about Visa please check on the website of the Italian Ministry for Foreign Affairs.
