Enrolment

How can I enrol and what documents are required for enrolment?

If you have passed the admission test, either directly or through the rolling ranking, you will receive an e-mail containing the details and deadlines for completing your enrolment from info@hunimed.eu. However, you are advised to monitor your position in the ranking list through the University website to avoid any problems.

During online enrolment on MyPortal, you are required to upload a passport photo and a copy of your Italian tax code, if available. you are also asked to confirm the details of your identity document and high school diploma, previously entered when registering for the entrance test.

If you hold a foreign qualification, you must submit the Dichiarazione di Valore (declaration of value), a document certifying the value of a qualification obtained in an educational system other than the Italian one. The Dichiarazione di Valore is drawn up in Italian and issued by the Italian Diplomatic Representations abroad (Embassies/Consulates) “competent by area”, i.e. the embassies or consulates closest to the city in which the institution that issued the foreign qualification is located.


Can I request prior credit recognition?

Humanitas University does not carry out prior credit recognition for the enrolment of new students.

If you are enrolled at Humanitas University, after passing one of the admission tests, you may request recognition of credits acquired during previous academic careers. At the beginning of each academic year, if you are enroled, the Student Office will notify you via the LMS platform when you can send the documentation required for credit recognition. The documentation relating to the recognition of exams, i.e. exam transcript certification and detailed programmes, must be sent to  creditrecognition@hunimed.eu.  After the deadline, the documentation is submitted to a commission made up of professors and tutors of the degree program. The Student Office will then notify you about the recognition status of you credits (total/ partial/ or non-recognition).

Recognition of credits does not affect the duration of the courses: six years for the Medical and MEDTEC Schools degree programs and three years for the degree programs in Nursing and Physiotherapy.


I am a foreign student. Can I enrol on Nursing and Physiotherapy courses?

If you are a foreign student wishing to enrol on the Nursing or Physiotherapy degree programs, you must hold a high school diploma or be in the last year of high school or hold another valid qualification obtained abroad. If the local school system provides for 10 or 11 years of schooling, the qualification is valid if integrated with 1 or 2 years of university attendance. Italian citizenship or EU citizenship is required to be admitted to the above-mentioned degree programs.

The degrees in Nursing and Physiotherapy are taught exclusively in Italian and a high level of language proficiency is therefore required.

Tuition fees

How is the income bracket calculated?

Humanitas University uses the ISEP (Index of Economic and Property Situation) as the income bracket calculation system. The ISEP is an internal model of the University which, based on the student’s family unit, is calculated as follows:

GROSS INCOME +
10/20% OF THE VALUE OF THE ESTATE PROPERTIES
(for properties abroad, please provide either the house plan or its sale value)
+
10% OF THE VALUE OF THE ASSETS
(i.e. bank accounts, investments, funds,  investments in listed corporate enterprises)
DEDUCTIONS =
ISEP

This model is not to be confused with the ISEE certificate. The value of ISEE and ISEP may vary as their calculation formulas are different.


Why does MyPortal automatically put you in the fourth income category/bracket?

At the time of enrollment, MyPortal automatically puts you in the fourth income category/bracket. This is a predefined and provisional bracket, prior to calculating the ISEP value and therefore the corresponding income bracket.


When is the income bracket calculation made?

The calculation of the income category is made at the beginning of each academic year as indicated in article 4 of the University Fee Regulations.

 

 

 

 

 

Scholarships

How many and what types of scholarships are available? Are there other types of funding?

At the beginning of each academic year, a number of scholarships are granted by the University to cover all or part of the university fees required for enrolment in the degree programs. The grant amount, participation procedures and allocation criteria are listed in the appropriate Regulations published on the “Tuition Fees and Scholarships” page of each Course.

Italian students residing in Italy can also access the “per Merito” loan provided by Banca Intesa Sanpaolo, subject to specific merit requirements. Also in this case, more information can be found on “Tuition Fees and Scholarships” page of each Course.

Transfers

How can I transfer?

Incoming transfer

You can transfer to the Degree program in Medicine and Surgery on the 2nd, 3rd and 4th year, if you are already enrolled on the same Degree Program in another Italian or foreign University. If you are enrolled at a foreign university, it must be officially recognised by the competent authorities of the country in which it is established.

You can transfer to the Degrees Programs in Nursing and Physiotherapy if you are already enrolled on the same Degree Program in another Italian university.

If you wish to transfer to the Medical School Degree Program, or the Nursing and Physiotherapy degree programs after the first year, you can submit an application if places become available.  Admission to the above-mentioned programs is subject to selection through the University transfer procedure, as explained in the specific Call. The call for transfers is usually published in late spring (May-June) and it can be found in the “Transfers” section of each Degree Program.

Outgoing transfers

If you wish to transfer to another university, you are not required to renew your enrolment for the next academic year. On receiving acceptance from the receiving university, you must send Humanitas Student Office the transfer nulla osta or other proof of admission. On receiving the documents, Humanitas University will send its nulla osta to the receiving university and will then close the student’s career.
