Procedure after participants' admission: selected participants will be asked to pay a non-refundable enrollment fee of 1,500 Euros (as part of tuition fees) in August and 3 monthly installments (September-November) for the remaining amount. Payments can be made by international bank transfer or by credit card.
Selected participants will be asked to scan and send via email (firstname.lastname@example.org) the following documents not later than 26 September 2019:
1. Passport biopage (the page with your photo) without legalization/notarization.
2. Bachelor’s Degree (of minimum 3 years duration) legalized by the competent Ministry or office in charge (usually the Ministry of Foreign Affairs or the Ministry of Justice) and counter signed by the competent authority (usually a notary) in the country in which you obtained your Bachelor’s degree.
3. Transcript of Academic Records (also known as Academic Transcript) legalized by the competent Ministry or office in charge (usually the Ministry of Foreign Affairs or the Ministry of Justice) and counter signed by the competent authority (usually a notary) in the country in which you obtained your Bachelor’s degree. The transcript of academic records should include all years of study.
Note: If the country in which you obtained your Bachelor’s degree has ratified the Hague Convention Abolishing the Requirement of Legalisation for Foreign Public Documents (also referred to as the Apostille Convention), then you just need to have an “apostille” stamped on the Bachelor’s degree and on the Transcript of academic records (the “apostille” is a stamp used to legalize documents of countries that have ratified the Apostille Convention). The list of countries which have ratified this Convention is available on this site: www.hcch.net/en/states/hcch-members
Once your Bachelor’s degree and the Transcript of Academic Records have been legalized, you will be required to do as follows:
4. Translation into Italian of your Bachelor’s Degree and Transcript of Academic Records made by a sworn/certified translator (the Italian Embassy in the country in which you obtained your Bachelor’s degree can provide you with a list of sworn/certified translators). Please note that if the transcript of academic records is written in English, you do not need to have it translated into Italian, but you still need to have it legalized as described above. If your Bachelor’s degree is in English you still need to have it translated into Italian and legalized by the Italian Embassy in the country in which you obtained your Bachelor’s degree.
Once you have the 4 above-mentioned documents, you will be asked to contact the Italian Embassy in the country in which you obtained the Bachelor’s degree to request this additional document:
5. “Declaration of Value” of your Bachelor’s degree. It is an official document issued by the Italian Embassy written in Italian that provides a short description of your academic qualification and the country university system.
The above procedure can usually be carried out by email, telephone and courier, but in some cases you may be required to go to the Italian Embassy. Please note that the whole procedure may take several weeks.
Alternatively, instead of requesting the Declaration of Value to the Italian Embassy, you may choose to request the Statement of Comparability to the Italian organization CIMEA through their website: http://cis.cimea.it/en/info/01.htm
The Statement of Comparability replaces the Declaration of Value. The Statement of Comparability is a document containing general information related to the country university qualification such as recognition/accreditation status of the institution that issued your degree and the level of the qualification obtained in relation to the European standards. It is recommended to check beforehand with CIMEA offices (email@example.com) the status of the degree obtained and of the institution which issued the degree: the online request does not imply any acceptance of the service by CIMEA. The Statement of Comparability is only available in Italian.
CIMEA will require you to pay 122 euros for regular service (30 working days: 6 weeks) or 244 euros for an urgent request (15 working days: 3 weeks). In order to request the Statement, please fill in the Application form, attaching a copy in PDF format (max 2MB) of the following original documents issued by your university:
a) Bachelor’s Degree in the original language;
b) Transcript of Academic Records or Diploma Supplement in the original language;
c) Translation in Italian of the two above-mentioned documents: please note that translations are not required to apply for the Statement of Comparability in case the documents are in English, French, Spanish, Portuguese, German, Italian or Latin. However, you will still need to have your Bachelor’s degree and transcript of academic records translated into Italian by a sworn translator before sending all the documents to us (if the transcript of academic records is in English, you will not need to have it translated into Italian, but only the Bachelor’s degree).
d) Consent Form for Release of Information, duly filled in and signed.
CIMEA will send the original Statement of Comparability in PDF to the email address indicated in the Application form within 30 working days from the acceptance of the request. Please write in the form that the Statement of Comparability should be sent to our email: firstname.lastname@example.org
As soon as we receive the Statement of Comparability, we will send you a copy of it.
Note: if you hold a University degree as from 2003 from a University in a country in the European Union (including the United Kingdom), you may request the University to provide you with a ”Diploma Supplement”. This document is intended to facilitate academic and professional qualification recognition. It provides a description of the nature, level, context, contents and status of the studies completed by the individual mentioned in the original copy of the degree to which such Supplement is attached. If you send a Diploma Supplement, you do not need to have it translated into Italian. In addition, you do not need to provide an Italian translation of your Bachelor’s degree, transcripts of academic records, and you do not need to send the Declaration of Value and/or the Statement of Comparability. However, you should have the Diploma Supplement legalized in the country in which you obtained your Bachelor’s degree. However, if you obtained your university degree in Denmark, Belgium, France, Germany, Lithuania, United Kingdom, you do not need to have the Diploma Supplement legalized.
Kindly scan and name each file you send us with the content of the document (i.e. Bachelor’s degree, Transcript of academic records, etc.) and send them via email (email@example.com) not later than 26 September 2019. Please make sure that you will bring the originals of the above-mentioned documents when you come for the residential phase in Turin. They are mandatory to obtain a first level Master’s degree from the University of Turin. Please note that we will not keep any of your original documents.
