- The ISEE for University statement – a document that you must submit in order to apply for university benefits – is specifically mentioned in Art. 8 of Prime Ministerial Decree no. 159 of 5/12/13. For the purpose of determining the student’s ISEE for University statement, if the student does not live with their parents, the student is still considered a member of their parents’ family unit – in this case income and assets of all household members will be taken into account - unless both of the following conditions are true: a) the student has been living away from their parents’ home, in accommodation not owned by a family member,for at least two years before applying to enrol for the first time in their degree programme; and b) the student has had an employee or tax-declared income of at least €6,500 per year, declared under a family unit of one person, for at least the past two years.
- To request an ISEE for University statement, students must complete a Substitutive Declaration (DSU) – which contains information about their family unit and each family member’s income and assets – directly at the “online services” section of the INPS website (www.inps.it) or with the help of a Tax Assistance Centre (CAF) or qualified professional. Students will be provided with the ISEE for University statement by the CAF or by the INPS. Students who do NOT reside in Italy and students residing in Italy who are NOT independent and whose family unit resides abroad should request an ISEE Equivalent statement (“Indicatore Parificato Universitario”or “ISEE PARIFICATO”). To obtain the ISEE Equivalent statement, students need to make an appointment at one of the following Tax Assistance Centres (CAF): ACLI, CGIL, CISL, UIL.

- University scholarships and grants (‘borsa per il diritto allo studio universitario’) are benefits for students in money and services managed by the University on behalf of the Veneto Region. Students can apply for these benefits by taking part in a selection process whose terms are set out in a specific Call for applications: this is issued in July every year and published on the University’s website: https://www.univr.it/benefici.
- Bachelor’s and Master’s degree students can apply for scholarships from their first year of enrolment (i.e. the first time the student has access to the university system) until the first year ‘fuori corso’, i.e. the first year beyond the normal programme duration. Specifically, pursuant to Prime Ministerial Decree of 9 April 2001, students who have previously withdrawn from studies and then enrolled in another degree programme are considered as being enrolled for the first time. The years they accumulated in their previous enrolment are not counted, as long as they did not receive any scholarship during that time. Any CFU gained during the previous enrolment will not be counted towards merit points for scholarship applications for the student’s current degree programme.
- You are eligible for a scholarship if you meet both merit requirements (i.e. if you have gained a specific number of CFU depending on your year of study) and financial requirements (based on you ISEE for University statement) as set out in the relevant Call for applications. PLEASE READ THE CALL CAREFULLY AND TAKE NOTE OF THE DEADLINES. Applications that are incomplete, received after the deadline or sent in a way not specified above will NOT be accepted
- - Read carefully the Call for applications and CHECK THE DEADLINES: the document is available at the following link: https://univr.it/borsedistudio
- - request an ISEE for University statement (attestazione ISEE per prestazioni agevolate per il Diritto allo Studio Universitario);
- - submit a scholarship application exclusively by completing the Benefits Application Form (DUB) online, available from the student’s personal account in ESSE3 – SEGRETERIA (https://univr.esse3.cineca.it/Start.do).
- - CHECK THAT YOU HAVE CONFIRMED YOUR APPLICATION;
- - check the provisional ranking list: should you spot any mistakes please fill out the relevant form as set out in the Call.
- Those intending to enrol in a limited entry degree programme or a degree programme with an admission exam/test must submit their application exclusively by completing the Benefits Application Form (DUB) online, available from the student’s personal account in ESSE3 – SEGRETERIA (https://univr.esse3.cineca.it/Start.do) using your username and password. Please note that any scholarships or grants will be awarded only once the successful applicant has fully enrolled in the degree programme. For further information on the methods for submitting the Benefits Application Form (DUB) online please refer to the previous section.
Please read the Call for applications, where the three categories are explained in more detail. In broad terms, the status is determined according to the distance between the student’s place and the place where they attend their university courses, based on the requirements included in the Call. According to the Municipality (Comune) in which the lectures of their degree programme are held (Verona/Bolzano/Ala/Trento/Legnago, etc.), students should check their own student status based on the Municipality in which they reside (this should be the one indicated in the student’s personal account in ESSE3 – SEGRETERIA). Students may be considered as ‘non-local’ if they reside in a place not included in the ‘local’ or ‘commuter’ categories, and only if they pay for their own accommodation. In this case, in addition to submitting their DUB, they will also have to send to email@example.com their rental contract (and all related documents), provided that these meet the requirements set out in the Call for Applications.
With regard to non-EU students, to be considered as ‘non-local’ they must meet all the requirements for ‘non-local’ students set out in the Call for applications.
Students participating in international mobility programmes shall keep their original scholarship (non-local, commuter or local scholarship), without being able to change their student status or increase the amount of the original scholarship. Students who attend a study abroad programme organised through the University in the same academic year will be considered ‘non-local’ as long as they live in paid accommodation while abroad for a duration which, together with that in Italy, adds up to at least 10 months. Students will have to submit a copy of the rental contract in either Italian or English.
When considering if the student meets the merit requirements, CFU from exams taken and recorded by the above terms – even if not yet displayed in the online student’s academic record (‘libretto’) – will be counted. CFU from exams taken but recorded after the above terms will not be taken into account. CFU from modules consisting of several parts will not be counted if the last part/exam of the module has been taken after the terms set out in the Call for applications. Only CFU FROM EXAMS TAKEN AND RECORDED BY 10 AUGUST OF THE CURRENT YEAR will be counted, even if not yet displayed in the student’s academic record (‘libretto’).
CFU will NOT be counted in the following cases: if the relevant exam was recorded after 10 August of the current year; if CFU were gained by taking exams from elective modules or additional activities, or by taking modules or activities earlier than expected for the student’s study plan, or if the CFU were gained in a previous degree programme from which the student has withdrawn.
University scholarships and grants are awarded through annual selection processes, in which students can participate by completing the Benefits Application Form (DUB) online. Scholarships will be awarded based on the final ranking list of beneficiaries and funding availability. By the term ‘beneficiaries’ we mean the successful applicants who will be awarded a scholarship (these are normally highlighted in yellow in the online ranking list). Conversely, by the term ‘eligible’ we mean the students who, although meeting the requirements for the scholarship, will be paid only if additional funding will be available: these will not be highlighted in yellow.
Yes. ‘Eligible’ students who are enrolled within the normal duration of their degree programme (‘in corso’), even if they are not beneficiaries of a scholarship due to a lack of funding, are entitled to total exemption from regional tax and 100% tuition fees.
‘Eligible’ students who are one year beyond the normal programme duration (‘fuori corso’), even if they are not beneficiaries of a scholarship due to a lack of funding, are entitled to total exemption from regional tax and 50% tuition fees.
To be able to receive scholarship or grant payments, students must enter the IBAN details of a current bank account for which they are the holder or co-holder, online in ESSE3 – SEGRETERIA (https://univr.esse3.cineca.it/Start.do) within the deadline indicated in the competition notice. Students should log in to their account, click on the link “Home - Anagrafica”, select the section “Reimbursement details” > “Change reimbursement details” then follow the instructions to enter the required information.
Please note that if the IBAN details of the student’s Banca Popolare di Verona CARD are used, the card needs to have already been activated at one of the branches of the Banca Popolare di Verona. Failure to provide the aforementioned IBAN details or to activate the card means that scholarship payments cannot be administered to that student.
Moreover, students who fail to enter their IBAN details in time will receive their first instalment by the subsequent payment date, as set out in the Call. Beneficiaries who enter their IBAN details in their student’s personal account in time will receive the first payment by 31 December. Eligible students will receive the first instalment subject to University’s funding availability.
Yes, non-EU students can also apply for University scholarships and grants. With regard to funding, a maximum of 5% of the total funds will be allocated to non-EU students enrolled for the first time in a Bachelor’s, Master’s or Single cycle/Combined Bachelor+Master’s degree programme, based on the regional regulations currently in force. For further information please contact the University Scholarships and Grants Office.
(scholarships) Can postgraduate students apply for University scholarships/grants?
Yes if they are PhD students. PhD students can apply for scholarships or grants based on the financial requirements only, provided they are regularly enrolled in the PhD programme for the academic year for which they apply for the benefit.
Yes if they are PhD or Postgraduate Specialisation for Legal Professions students. PhD or Postgraduate Specialisation for Legal Professions students can apply for scholarships or grants based on the financial requirements only, provided they are regularly enrolled in the PhD programme for the academic year for which they apply for the benefit.
For ‘Beneficiaries’ the canteen service will be available starting from January, while ‘eligible’ students will be able to benefit from the service once they have received the first instalment of the scholarship. The duration of the service is one year from when it is made available for the first time. Please remember to activate the Banca Popolare di Verona CARD on www.esu.vr.it
University scholarships are not subject to taxation, and therefore are not to be included in your tax returns (modello 730/Unico). However, regional scholarships must be declared when determining your ISEE. For this purpose you should download the Certificazione Unica (CU), a document which demonstrates that a scholarship/grant was paid to you by the University of Verona in a given calendar year. To do so, go to: https://www.univr.u-gov.it/ (click on: UGOV > Risorse Umane/Consultazione documenti (Human Resources/Documents) > Documenti personali (Personal documents), then enter your GIA personal username and password to log in). The system automatically displays the current year: if you wish to change it just click on the year and select FILTRA (Filter your search). Should you encounter any problems in downloading the CU please write to: firstname.lastname@example.org
Yes, although there are no specific scholarships for people with disabilities (i.e. you will need to submit a scholarship application under the general Call for applications). Students with a disability rating equal to or greater than 66% shall benefit from the following advantages: they shall receive extended scholarships; first-year students enrolled for the first time in a Bachelor’s/Master’s degree or Single cycle/Combined Bachelor+Master’s degree programme will receive the second instalment of their scholarship, regardless of whether or not they have gained a minimum number of CFU credits by 10 August of the year which follows their enrolment; the adoption of special merit requirements for the award of a scholarship, depending on each student’s disability rating (for students enrolled in any year except their first year); the awarding of bonus points that may enable the applicant to achieve the requirements for the award of a scholarship, depending on his/her disability rating. Further information is available online on the Scholarships and Grants webpage.
For information on how to apply for a scholarship please contact the Inclusion and Accessibility Unit.
Yes. The University normally performs checks and verifications on the truthfulness of students’ self-declarations when they apply for scholarships/grants. Through a memorandum of understanding, the University also sends students’ self-declarations of financial position to be further investigated by the Provincial Command of the Italian Finance Police (Guardia di Finanza) in Verona. These procedures are carried out in accordance with the Regulations for implementing checks on applications for university bursaries.
Following appropriate administrative and financial checks, if a declaration that was submitted is found to contain untruthful information, any benefits awarded will be revoked and sanctions will be applied. National laws on this matter are applicable, especially Art.s 75 and 76 of Presidential Decree no. 445/2000 and Legislative Decree no. 68/2012, which states: “Whoever [...] submits false statements [...] is subject to administrative penalties consisting of the payment of three times the amount made, or the value of services accessed incorrectly, and loses the right to receive other funds for duration of their course of studies, subject in all cases to the application of the penalties provided for in Art. 38(3) of Decree Law no. 78 of 31/05/2010, converted with amendments by Law n.122 of 30/07/2010, as well as the criminal laws for the acts that constituted the offence.”
The ‘Benefits Application Form’ or DUB (‘Domanda Unica Benefici’ in Italian) is a declaration form which students complete and sign in order to apply for student benefits. Students must complete the DUB online by logging into their personal account in ESSE3 – SEGRETERIA (https://univr.esse3.cineca.it/Start.do). Only one DUB should be completed, also when applying for several benefits (scholarships, student fees reduction, part-time student collaborations). Once the DUB has been confirmed by the student, he/she cannot change it anymore: students are therefore advised to be careful when completing the form, and follow the instructions set out in the Call for applications.
In order to apply for the benefits for students provided by the University of Verona, students must submit their ‘Benefits Application Form’ or DUB by the terms set out in the Calls for applications, which are normally published in July each year on the University’s website at: www.univr.it/benefici
Further information - such as deadlines for university instalments of fees and contributions (if due), deadlines and methods for receiving payments and reimbursement of scholarships - are available in the relevant regulations, Calls for applications or public notices, posters, notices on information boards, or the Intranet. You can also access further information through the official ‘UNIVR’ app, which can be downloaded from Google Play, Apple Store and Windows Store. Thanks to this app, you’ll have all University’s services at your fingertips, 24/7.
Through ‘part-time student collaborations’, enrolled students have the opportunity to work at the University for a short period and collaborate within its structures and offices. Interested students can apply starting from their second year if enrolled in a Bachelor’s or Master’s degree programme, or a Single cycle/Combined Bachelor+Master’s degree programme. After taking part in a selection process, successful applicants will be placed in a specific ranking list, and assigned to a Structure of the University. The collaboration – which is paid – has a maximum duration of 150 hours during the calendar year and does not constitute any type of employment relationship with the University.
It is possible to apply for a ‘part-time student collaboration’ by taking part in an open competition launched in July each year: applicants must complete the ‘Benefits Application Form’ or DUB online available on the ESSE3 system. Students can apply if they are in their second year onwards (for Bachelor’s and Single cycle/Combined Bachelor+Master’s degree programmes), or starting from the first year if Master’s degree students. Selection is made based on the merit requirements set out in the specific Call for applications, which is available on the University’s website: www.univr.it/benefici.
If for any reason you are unable to complete the total number of hours required, you will need to fill in a specific form available at the Structure where you work. In case of partial cancellation, you will be paid for the hours actually worked. This will not prevent you from applying for a ‘part-time student collaboration’ in the future.
In order to enable the payment procedure, you must enter in ESSE3 the details of a bank account for which you are holder or co-holder (no bank accounts of third parties will be accepted). Please go to: https://univr.esse3.cineca.it/Start.do and log in using your username and password, then click on home – anagrafica and select dati rimborso (reimbursement details). Then click on modifica dati di rimborso (modify reimbursement details) and enter the required information following the instructions.
The payment you receive for taking part in a ‘part-time student collaboration’ is not subject to taxation – and shall not be counted as income when completing the ‘Modello 730/Unico’ – as long as it does not exceed the annual limit of €3,500 (Art. 11 of Legislative Decree no. 68/2012). However, any payment received in this regard must be declared when determining your ISEE statement. For this purpose you should download the Certificazione Unica (CU), a document which demonstrates that a payment was made to you by the University of Verona in a given calendar year. To do so, go to: https://www.univr.u-gov.it/ (click on: UGOV > Risorse Umane/Consultazione documenti (Human Resources/Documents) > Documenti personali (Personal documents), then enter your GIA personal username and password to log in). The system automatically displays the current year: if you wish to change it just click on the year and select FILTRA (Filter your search).

- If the online payment section of your student’s personal area on ESSE3 shows a negative amount, it means that you are entitled to a reimbursement.

Further information can be found on the Student fees webpage.
- Students with disabilities wishing to request financial support towards the cost of their tuition fees must provide the Inclusion and Accessibility Service with the following documents: a copy of the certificate of invalidity released by healthcare authorities or other approved body, stating the disability rating; a copy of a valid identity document, tax ID number and IBAN.

After the enrolment deadline, the Postgraduate Study Office will inform each Programme Director whether their course has reached the minimum number of students, and if so, it will send them a list of eligible students. If a selection process is to be carried out, or if the number of applicants exceeds the maximum number of students that can be admitted, the Scientific Committee will draw up a list of the admitted applicants. The Office will then publish the list with all the information necessary to complete the enrolment. For courses that are open (no selection process or evaluation by the Scientific Committee), the Office, once it has ensured that the minimum number of participants has been reached, will publish a list of the admitted applicants, with all the information necessary to complete the enrolment.
The second step is the enrolment and the payment of the instalment.
Please check our website for tutorials on how to register on ESSE3, how to apply for the Call and how to enrol.
- From ‘enrolment deadline’to ‘sending the list of applicants to Programme Directors’: 3 working days.
From ‘receiving the list of the admitted applicants by the Scientific Committee’ to ‘publication of the list of admitted applicants, and open enrolment window’: 3 working days.
From the ‘opening of the enrolment window’ to ‘enrolment deadline’: 5 working days.
From ‘enrolment deadline’ to ‘start of the course’: 5 working days.
For courses in which a high number of applicants is expected, or a high number of applicants with foreign qualifications, the Postgraduate Study Office may choose to postpone deadlines, especially for the activities included in the first two lines above.
- Yes. Enrolment deadlines may be extended by up to one month. If, after the enrolment deadline, the number of applicants is less than the minimum number of enrolled students required, the Programme Director may propose and have approved by the Department a new financial plan that complies with the sustainability requirements of the course. If the number of applicants exceeds the maximum number of students that can be admitted, the Scientific Committee may determine to admit more applicants, provided that the quality requirements of the course are met (i.e. classrooms, student/faculty ratio, internship opportunities). If, after the enrolment deadline, the minimum number of applicants to be admitted has not been reached, additional applicants may be admitted, as long as it is before the start of the course.
- As far as Professional Master’s programmes are concerned, in accordance with the relevant legislation, you can be enrolled:
a) in two Professional Master’s programmes at the same time, even at two different Universities, provided that the programmes in question are different;
b) in a Professional Master’s programme and a Bachelor/Master’s degree at the same time;
c) in a Professional Master’s programme and a Postgraduate Specialisation programme at the same time;
d) in a Professional Master’s programme and a PhD programme;
For points a) and b) above, if attendance requirements are in place for one of the two programmes, enrolment in the second programme is permitted only if the latter does not have any attendance requirements, with the exception of courses for which compulsory attendance is required only for laboratory and internship activities.
For point c), enrolment is permitted subject to assessment by the respective collegiate bodies, which will verify that the conditions for acquiring the knowledge and skills necessary for achieving the training objectives for each programme are met, and that these are compatible with the attendance requirements in place.
For point d), enrolment is permitted subject to assessment by the respective collegiate bodies, which will verify that the conditions for acquiring the knowledge and skills necessary for achieving the training objectives for each programme are met.
- Yes, students who are about to graduate are allowed to enrol in a Professional Master's programme if they have taken all the modules and only need to pass the final examination to earn their degree. They must graduate by the last graduation session of the academic year prior to the one in which lectures start. Please note: when drawing up the list of eligible applicants (‘graduatoria’), priority will be given to applicants who have graduated by the enrolment deadline.
- Yes, you can apply for and enrol in multiple Professional Master’s programmes, subject to any mandatory attendance requirements, if applicable. Please note: you cannot be enrolled in two Professional Master’s programmes of the same type at two different universities/institutes at the same time.
- Yes, you can attend a Professional master’s programme and another postgraduate study course in the same academic year, subject to any mandatory attendance requirements, if applicable.
- Yes, students who are about to graduate – i.e. those who only need to pass the final examination to complete their degree programme – can enrol on an advanced course, provided that they graduate before the beginning of the latter course, which requires mandatory attendance.
Please note: when drawing up the list of eligible applicants (graduatoria), priority will be given to applicants who have graduated by the enrolment deadline.
- Yes, if you enrol on a Professional master’s programme, you may be entitled to receive a benefit in the form of a reduction/reimbursement of your tuition fees for a value of €500. Specifically:
1) Students who graduate in the academic year 2020/2021 within the normal duration of their Bachelor’s degree or Single-cycle/Combined Bachelor+Master’s degree (including at a different university) and who then enrol for the following academic year on a 1st-level Professional master’s programme at the University of Verona are awarded a tuition fee reduction of € 500;
2) Students who graduate in the academic year 2020/2021 within the normal duration of their Master’s degree or Single cycle/Combined Bachelor+Master’s degree (including at a different university) who then enrol for the following academic year on a 2nd-level Professional master’s programme at the University of Verona are awarded a tuition fee reduction of € 500.
How to apply for benefits:
a) if you graduated at the University of Verona before registering for the selection process, these benefits are applied automatically;
b) if you graduated at the University of Verona after registering for the selection process, please write to: firstname.lastname@example.org;
c) if you graduated at another university, please write to: email@example.com and attach a substitutive declaration ("dichiarazione sostitutiva del certificato di laurea ai sensi del DPR 445/2000”) in which you declare the following:
• the name of the University at which you graduated;
• that you have graduated within the normal duration of your degree programme;
• the academic year in which you enrolled;
• the academic year in which you graduated.
• This declaration must be original and you will need to send it together with a scanned copy of a valid ID document.
If point b) or c) above applies to you, you should send your request at the time of enrolling, or before the second instalment of tuition fees is issued, if due. Benefits are in the form of a reduction of the first or the second instalment (if due), or as a reimbursement if the instalments have already been paid in full.
- Yes. Students with disabilities can apply for reduced fees, as follows:
a) Students with a certified disability according to Art. 3(1) of Law no. 104/1992 or with at least 66% invalidity, are completely exempt from paying course fees for Professional Master’s programmes, advanced and professional development courses. These students will be enrolled as ‘extra students’, i.e. they will not be taken into account when calculating the minimum number of participants to start the course.
b) Students with certified disability of 50-65% are awarded a €250 reduction towards their course fees for Professional Master’s programmes, and a 5% reduction towards their course fees for advanced and professional development courses. Benefits are in the form of a reduction of the first or the second instalment (if due), or as a reimbursement if the instalments have already been paid in full.
- Attendance is compulsory for a fixed percentage which cannot be less than 70% of the teaching activity. The specific percentage of attendance varies according to the Course and can be consulted in the "home" section of the individual Courses.
- No, you will not be awarded any ECM credits by attending a Professional master’s programme, only CFU credits. Healthcare assistants who attend, either in Italy or abroad, postgraduate training courses (Specialisation programmes, PhD programmes, Professional master’s programmes, advanced courses, and Master’s degree programmes, as set out in Ministerial Decree no. 509 of 3 November 1999) are exempt from having to obtain ECM credits.
- You can pay the enrolment fees of your course by printing out the PagoPA payment form, which will be made available to you online at the time of enrolment. If your company or organisation intends to pay your fees, please get in touch with the Segreteria master: firstname.lastname@example.org
- La Carta docente può essere utilizzata per l'acquisto di iscrizione a corsi di laurea, di laurea magistrale, specialistica o a ciclo unico, inerenti al profilo professionale, ovvero a corsi post lauream o a master universitari inerenti al profilo professionale. Il buono deve essere inviato prima del pagamento della tassa a email@example.com
- Yes. However, if a private company is paying for your fees, the payment must be made before the payment deadline set out in the relevant Call for applications. If a public body or organisation is paying for your fees, a certificate stating that the payment will be made (‘impegno di spesa’) must be sent to the University by the enrolment deadline. At the request of the company or organisation, a payment receipt can be issued once payment has been received by the University.
- For any teaching and learning activities taking place online, the University’s regulations on e-learning apply. Enrolled students may attend lectures remotely without any restrictions if these activities have been planned to include Distance learning.
- Professional Master’s programmes, advanced and professional development courses may include compulsory internships in public and private organisations and companies, and in professional firms. In order to host students and become Host Organisations, companies will need to enter into a curricular internship agreement with the University.
By curricular internship is meant a practical training experience in a workplace carried out by a student enrolled in a course/degree programme; the internship is compulsory if it is regarded as a core activity to be completed in order to achieve the final qualification.
Compulsory curricular internships must be completed by the end of the course/programme indicated by the Programme Coordinator in the final report and communicated to the students. All the training activities of the course, including the final examination, where applicable, must be completed by this deadline. The delivery of diplomas or ceremony, if any, always takes place on a date after the course has ended.
Within 12 months of the end of the course, an extra-curricular internship may be activated: it is still a training experience in a workplace but is aimed at those who are no longer enrolled in any course, i.e. graduates. Companies wishing to host graduates as interns and become Host Organisations will need to enter into an extra-curricular internship agreement with the University.
Please note that different regulations from those in place for curricular internships apply to extra-curricular internships; extra-curricular internships may not last longer than six months and the relevant Host Organisation is required to pay the intern a gross monthly allowance, which for the Veneto Region amounts to €450.
To find out more, see the section “Programma” – “Informazioni sullo stage” (if applicable) on the Individual Modules web pages.
- Partnerships in the area of postgraduate courses are established by means of an agreement (‘Convenzione’) drawn up by the Postgraduate Study office using a template approved by the University. This must then be signed by the Rector, or the Director of the Department.
- No reimbursement of the tuition fees will be made if you withdraw from your course. Following the withdrawal, the student is not entitled to a refund of the fees and contributions already paid, while the obligations to pay the instalments due before the official withdrawal date shall remain, as well as the financial obligations relating to sanctions or forfeiture of any financial benefits already received.
- To withdraw from studies, log into ESSE3, then click on “carriere” and “domanda di chiusura”. Once the procedure is complete, the system will provide you with a €16 payment form (stamp duty - imposta di bollo) that you will need to pay. Once your payment is made, you will need to send a copy of the form to firstname.lastname@example.org. Please note that your withdrawal request will be regarded as correctly submitted only once you have paid the relevant stamp duty.
- Yes, you can withdraw from your course temporarily, in case of:
a) prolonged illness
d) any other case established by current legislation
e) other special cases authorised by the Scientific Committee
The student may be admitted as an extra student to the same course in the following academic year, if applicable.
The Scientific Committee may recognise the activities previously attended by the student, and shall determine the amount of enrolment fees to be paid.
- For information about how to request certificates and self-declarations, please see the relevant web page:
Please note that certificates and self-declarations are only made available once the qualification has been obtained.
Certificates are normally delivered within 3 working days of the request.
However, self-declarations may be downloaded and printed by the student. Self-declaration templates are available on ESSE3 at: https://univr.esse3.cineca.it/Home.do
- Your diploma/graduation scroll is made available approximately one to one and a half months after completion of your Course/programme. How long this takes depends on the request of the Programme Coordinator, the administrative processing by the Postgraduate and Teacher Training Office and the Enrolment Office, which is responsible for printing diplomas/graduation scrolls.
The diploma/graduation scroll can be collected from the relevant office (Ufficio Diplomi). For information and contact details, please see:
On the page you’ll find out how to check: the status of your diploma/graduation scroll (Student ID is required) and when this will become available for pick-up or, possibly, shipment and the corresponding cost.
- PagoPA is the new standard system for making payments to Italian Public Administration bodies via authorised payment points, or PSPs (Prestatori di Servizi di Pagamento - Payment Service Providers). Payments can be made directly through the website or the smartphone app of each body of the Italian Public Administration, or through specific payment points/PSPs such as bank branches, home-banking services, ATMs, SISAL, Lottomatica and Banca 5 points.
- Yes, but you will need to go to your bank in person. Just print out the PagoPA payment notice which includes the barcode/QR code and take it to your bank, which will need it in order to make the payment.
- When paying by credit, debit or prepaid card, it is possible to check which payment methods are available and see the amount of the fees charged by each PSP.
Payment by credit, debit or prepaid card is allowed even if your bank is not an authorised PSP. Please note, however, that your card company must be one of those supported by the system (e.g. Mastercard, VISA, etc.): if so, select a PSP (this must be one of the PagoPA payment points supporting payments with your credit card). The system will display the fee that the PSP will charge you for executing the payment transaction, while for the use of the credit card the contractual conditions that you have agreed with the issuing bank or credit card company shall apply.
Finally, before proceeding with the payment make sure that your credit card is enabled for online payment, and that the limit of your card is compatible with the amount to be paid.
- MAV payment forms can only be used until 31 January 2020. After that date it will only be possible to pay via PagoPA.
When making a payment, please note that it can take up to 24 hours for the confirmation email to be sent to you. If after this time you have still not received your confirmation email, please check:
- that your mailbox is not full;
- that the message is not in your spam folder.
- No. You cannot enter a Certified Email address (PEC) when making a payment via PagoPA, because the system is unable to support and send PEC emails.
- If you decide to interrupt or abandon the payment procedure before you have completed it, you will receive an email notifying you of a failed transaction;
- if the payment is not performed correctly due to a technical problem, the system will display an error message inviting you to try again later.
- If the payment procedure has not been completed due to a technical problem, the system will display an error message inviting you to try again later.
If, on the other hand, the procedure has been completed but the transaction cannot be performed (e.g. due to lack of availability on your credit card):
- a message will appear informing you of the failed transaction;
- you will receive an electronic payment receipt (RT - Ricevuta Telematica) by email, with the statement “PAGAMENTO NON ESEGUITO” (payment declined). This receipt will not be regarded as proof of payment.
If you do not complete the procedure in time, if your internet disconnects, or if you decide to change your payment method after you have already selected one, you will not be able to click on the “Paga online” (Pay Online) and “Avviso di pagamento” (Payment Notice) buttons for about 60 minutes.
- That simply cannot happen with PagoPA. Thanks to the codes included in the PagoPA payment notice, the system displays the actual amount to be paid and automatically starts the payment procedure, without you needing to enter other codes or amounts. To put it short, there’s no room for mistakes!
- No. This is sent automatically to you when the payment request is accepted by the Payment Centre (Nodo dei Pagamenti). At that moment no charge is made. Later, if you complete the procedure, you will receive another email in which you will be notified that the payment has been successful.
- Just go to one of the authorised banks or PSPs (e.g. a tobacco shop in which the Sisal Pay or Lottomatica service is provided). Please always specify that you intend to pay via PagoPA.
