International Students

Students who decide to study in Italy often find themselves thrown into a system and a culture which are very different from those of their own countries; they must also deal with unfamiliar and, at times, complex bureaucratic procedures.

At our University they can now count on the Welcome Desk a service designed for students, doctoral students and interns who have come to Milan for the first time, but also to those who already live in the city and need to verify the validity of academic qualifications obtained abroad in order to enrol on one of our courses.

The Welcome Desk is aimed to be the international students’ point of reference for all the initial necessities of their new adventure in Milan and at the University.

The Welcome Desk has put together a short guide – that you can download here to outline the various steps you need to take in order to obtain documents, to enroll on a course, to take an Italian language course, take advantage of the services and opportunities we offer, to live and get around in the city of Milan.
