Upload the academic qualification certificates and supporting documents that you provided for your pre-evaluation:
final diploma (if available) or provisional certificate – copy of original and Italian/English translation (where necessary)

language certificate(s) (where required)
CIMEA Statement of Comparability/Declaration of Value/Diploma Supplement (where held)
Check your details and submit the pre-enrolment application.
Once the pre-enrolment application has been approved by the University of Pisa, candidates can start the visa application. The procedure may vary according to the provisions issued by the individual Italian embassies and consulates abroad and it is the candidate’s responsibility to inquire about specific procedures and deadlines.
The procedures for issuing these visas must be concluded by the embassies/consulates, without prejudice to possible different future instruction, by 30 November 2020.
The embassy or consulate is exclusively responsible for the final decision on the issue of a study visa.
The documentation produced by the higher education institutions in relation to a candidate’s application for a visa is considered as supporting information in the evaluation procedures carried out by these agencies, and does not automatically imply the issue of a visa.
