Enrolment of Students with Foreign Qualifications

Bachelor's Degree (3-years course - Laurea) and Master's Degree (5-years one-block course - Laurea Magistrale)

To be admitted to a Bachelor's Degree (1st cycle: Laurea Degree courses) or 5-yrs Master's Degree Course (2nd cycle: Laurea Magistrale Degree one-block courses) you must have been awarded the High School Diploma valid for the admission to the University. The foreign degrees valid for admission to Italian Universities are listed on the website of the Ministry of Education, University and Research at:

Master's Degree (2-year course - Laurea Magistrale)

To be admitted to a 2-years Master's Degree ( 2nd Cycle - Laurea Magistrale Degree Course ) you must have been awarded a Bachelor's Degree in your Country from a University or a post-secondary education institute. Enrollment is subject to recognition of previous academic qualifications. The recognition of qualifications is made by a special Commission, appointed by the relevant Course of Study within a maximum period of 90 days from the submission of the prescribed documentation. If some academic prerequisites are not satisfied, the commission can approve the admission indicating some individual courses and exams that must be passed in order to be enrolled.

Italian Language

To be admitted to all degree courses candidates must have a level B1 minimum knowledge of the Italian Language (same level of a foreign language when the course is taught exclusively in a foreign language). The date of the Italian Language Test for non-EU citizens residing abroad (compulsory and selective) is fixed annually by the Ministry of Education, University and Research. For the academic year 2013-2014 is September 2nd 2013.

EU citizens and non-EU citizens legally residing in Italy must pass a compulsory but not selective Italian Language Test as well. They will have thus the possibility to test their language skills and to plan any further study in order to carry out their future university studies under the best conditions and with maximum profit. Details about the test will be published by Roma Tre in September on the site of the University's Language Centre

The procedures and information regarding the enrollment in all degree courses are set and published in the "Bando di Ammissione CON TITOLO ESTERO", published on the Portale dello Studente in the session "Ammissioni e Immatricolazioni " > "Bandi di Ammissione".
The complete rules on admission with a foreign qualification and recognition of foreign qualifications are published in the Regolamento per l'ammissione ai corsi universitari con titolo estero e per il riconoscimento dei titoli esteri.

Information on Italian universities are now also available in the new portal Universitaly.

If the applicant applies for a two-year Master's Degree or recognition for a shortening of the university career, he/she has to add to the before mentioned documents:
