Admission application for the College

I am already enrolled to the first year of university. Can I apply for a scholarship?
Still considering the priority given to high school graduates, the Foundation reserves the unquestionable right to accept students about to begin their second or following university year; in any case, students about to begin their last year of university courses (MA degree) will not be admitted.
The application must include a certificate for all university exams taken so far, with detailed grades and course credits.

I just got my bachelor’s degree and I want to enroll to a Master’s Degree in Rome. Can I apply for a scholarship?

What is the “non-resident” student scholarship?
“Non-resident” students participate to the educational activities of the College (especially in-house seminars and the summer school), they have tutorship and guidance for their academic career and they can ask for financial subsidy (either with a grant or expense refund) up to €800 maximum per year, provided they comply with rules (maintain a good academic average, attend the educational activities proposed by the College). Please note that you must check if the grant given by our Foundation is compatible with other subsidies granted by the Local Institution for the Right to Education (DISU). Should it be incompatible, “non-resident” students may take part in the educational activities of the College and receive an expense refund.

I applied for “Residency” but, should I not be accepted, I would like to apply for “Non-Residency”. What should I do?
In the pre-enrolment form you can check if you apply for residency or non-residency in the related box. If you check both, once all the resident places are taken, applicants will be considered for non-residency.

One of my parents is an INPS worker/pensioner and I would like to apply for the INPS scholarship for university colleges. Must I still apply for the college screening process?

As per the official call, candidates will be notified in any case about the outcome of the pre-selection by email, be it positive or negative. Should you not receive any notice, please check the spam folder of your email or contact the Secretariat for further information.

I received the notice of admission to the tests. What should I do now?

All documents must be sent first via email and then posted, on unstamped paper (photocopy), to the Secretariat of the College before the deadline specified in the notice of admission, in order to allow the evaluation of the documents.

Original documents must not be sent, only send copies (we suggest copying report cards in A3 format or on a single page with I and II semester together) The certificate of family status does not need the tax stamp. In some cases, we could accept a self-certification of the family status.

I don’t have any work experience. Should I still send my CV?

Yes. In your CV you can write about your educational experience (qualifications), additional educational activities, possible volunteering experiences. You can write your CV in any format or the one available on the Europass website

My school does not give me my report cards with grades from I and II semester. What can I do?
