Student Visa in Italy!

Italy's educational system is world-renowned for its excellence, with a variety of possibilities for international students. Language and architecture degrees are particularly well-known in Italy.
A bachelor's degree takes three or four years in Italy, a master's degree takes two years, and a doctorate degree might take up to five years, depending on the field. There are a range of institutions that specialize in specific subjects, such as business schools, medical schools, and engineering schools.

Italy has exceptionally low tuition fees, especially when compared to the rest of Europe and the United States. Tuition can cost up to $2,000 each year, but you should check with your chosen university to find out precisely how much it will cost.
The cost of living varies greatly depending on where you study. The cost of living in larger cities, particularly those in the north, such as Milan and Rome, is significantly higher than in smaller towns. To cover your living expenses, budget between $15,000 and $20,000 as a rough estimate.

Each Italian institution sets its own programme requirements, which may vary between programmes. To apply to a university in Italy, you must have finished secondary education, and your final exam results will determine whether or not you will be accepted.
The TOEFL or IELTS English Language examinations are accepted by most Italian colleges as proof of your English proficiency.

There are two types of student visas in Italy, depending on the duration of the study program:
Visa type C: Short-stay visa or travel visa valid for one or more entries and for a period not exceeding 90 days
Visa type D: Long-stay visa valid for more than 90 days

How to Apply for a Study Visa in Italy:
1) Accept the university's offer: Pay any fees required to guarantee your spot
2) Contact or visit the consulate or embassy: Find out what documents you'll need, and book an interview for your Italian visa application.
3) Interview for a visa: Submit the requested documents and pay the application cost.
4) Await the outcome: A visa decision will be written to you.
5) Request a residency permit: You must apply for your residency permit at your nearest Questura – a type of police station — within eight days of arriving in Italy.
6) Obtain a permit: Because obtaining your permit may take several months, you may be issued a temporary document during this time.

Italy student visa requirements:
1) Color passport photo taken recently
2) Valid passport (the expiry date should be three months longer than that of the visa requested)
3) A place at an Italian university that has been confirmed.
4) History of education and relevant documentation
5) Reservation confirmation in Italy
6) Financial proof that you can support yourself in Italy (at least € 467,65 per month for the academic year, a total of € 6.079,45 per year)
7) Health insurance
8) Photocopies of previous visas.
9) Civil status documents, such as birth or marriage certificates.
10) Police clearances from your home country.
Keep in mind that this is not an exhaustive list. Different Italian embassies may have different requirements, so you have to check in with them before you submit your application. An incomplete submission will be rejected and you have to apply at a later date.
The processing of your visa application should usually take between one and three weeks, however, you should aim to schedule your visa interview around six weeks in advance. That means you should start the process two or three months before your departure date.

*All documents that are not in Italian or English have to be translated by an authorized translator.*

You can usually work up to 20 hours a week with a student residence permit in Italy. However, your employer will need to organize a work permit for you, which may take up to two months to process – a slightly complicated process! Processing times vary between regions, but average around two months.

The Italian study visa is available for a maximum of one year initially, with the possibility of renewal for the duration of your courses. However, in order for you to renew a student visa, you have to pass all your yearly exams at university.
