Moving to another country to study at the University often puts an additional strain on the life-changing decision of entering a Medical School. That’s why Humanitas University assists its students all the way to their settlement in Italy, providing practical support across all the key critical steps, i.e.

  • study visa
  • declaration of value
  • residence permit
  • tax code
  • bank account
  • health insurance

and a special induction programme to help you understand the Italian educational system, fill possible educational gaps and get a first taste of the social and cultural climate of the city.

 

Before your arrival: study visa and declaration of value

Study Visa

In order to move to Italy for attending a Degree Course you must request and obtain a study visa from your local Italian Consulate. Upon enrollment, Humanitas University International Office will provide you with an invitation letter as proof for the Italian Consulate.

Your Consulate will indicate you the exact procedure and deadlines to abide by.

 

Induction Weeks for non-European students

The first weeks and months in a new country may be a very challenging period due to social and cultural adjustments, as well as to the issue related to understanding a foreign educational system and of filling possible educational gaps.

In order to help Non-EU students admitted to the first year, Humanitas University organizes a special 3-week induction programme called “Induction Weeks”.
