Application Submission

I cannot complete the application because my school is closed (so I do not have a transcript, references, etc.). What can I do?
 
We ask that you submit your application using a self-certification that will be provided by our office. Any documentation submitted will be checked against the original documents as soon as they can be made available to us.
In the meantime, your application will be evaluated with your self-certification data.
 
Please ask for a certification template at: ammissione@luiss.it.

Partial Application Submission

a) If I have submitted the most up-to-date transcripts, etc., but they are incomplete, can my application still be evaluated?

We ask that you submit your application with the most current data using a self-certification that will be provided by our office. Any documentation submitted will be checked against the original documents as soon as they can be made available to us. In the meantime, your application will be evaluated with your self-certification data.

Please ask for a certification template at: ammissione@luiss.it.

b) I will not receive my secondary or high school diploma and transcripts (or Bachelor’s Degree) until September, so how will you handle my enrollment?

Your registration will be treated as conditional until such time that we receive a copy of your secondary or high school (or Bachelor’s Degree) transcripts. In that case, if you have met all of the requirements for qualification (validity and years of schooling as set by Italian law), you will automatically be fully enrolled in your university program.

Tuition Refunds

a) How will you manage possible refunds should I decide not to come to Italy to study (based on my own personal perceptions regarding the health crisis, et.al.)?

You can submit your request for a refund and it will be evaluated on a case-by-case basis directly with the enrollment office.

b) How do you manage possible refunds if the government of my country will not allow me to travel to Italy for the start of classes?

In the case of force majeure as proven by relevant documentation, you will be entitled to a full refund.

Admission Postponement

Can admission be postponed to the following academic year?

No – Admission cannot be postponed. A candidate accepted who does not complete enrollment for the 2020-2021 academic year, must re-apply through the selection process for the 2021-2022 academic year.

Online Courses

Have you scheduled online classes for the first semester of the upcoming academic year?

Lessons for the 2020/2021 academic year will definitely be delivered, either on campus or through remote learning. The university is taking all necessary steps to enhance our online teaching platform for theoretical teaching, while strengthening our workshops for practical training of students.

Athletic Admissions

I am an athlete and I’d like to apply for a Luiss sports scholarship. Can I submit only the single application?

No – A student athlete has to be assessed both academically and athletically, so sports candidates must submit both applications at the same time.

Once the student has obtained admission for the chosen degree program, they must write to sport@luiss.it confirming that they have been admitted. At that point, the Sports Office will ask the Student Office to “freeze” the deadline for payment, until the student’s position as an athlete is determined. Once the selection process for athletes has been completed and the student is informed of the outcome, they will have to decide whether or not to go ahead with enrollment.

Note: With regard to physical exams, candidates – if not previously requested or received by e-mail – will be asked to confirm their academic suitability by the Sports Office directly.

Freshers’ Week

While we are currently considering a totally online version of Freshers’ Week for both undergraduate and graduate students, our current events schedule is as follows [please check back for any updates and further participation details]:

I. Bachelor’s Programs: 7-14 September (remedial courses must be completed prior along with self-assessment test)

Welcome week for undergraduate Freshers [optional 7-11 September] is preceded by mandatory online pre-courses (one per degree program) taking place in August, and including an online final assessment test.
Should a student not obtain a satisfactory score, they will have to take remedial courses during Freshers’ Week to bring them up to standard. No university educational credits are awarded as part of this process.

II. Master’s Programs: 7-18 September, with days and relative activities organized by individual departments. Participation for the full two weeks is mandatory for all Master Degree’s students and students will earn course credits.

Entering master’s degree students must have attained all educational credit, including any changes in study plan, and ERS is no longer offered in the second semester of the first year in the program.

All graduate Freshers will receive a playlist of useful materials furnished by degree program directors which will provide an in-depth look at the various subjects offered. Materials will be available online and presented by program directors during a virtual meeting.

International Students

Subject to further notice, the application deadline currently remains 4 June 2020.

Call for applications for international student accommodations is in the process of being published.

Welcome Desk
Communications for
International Students

Welcome emails and letters for visa applications are being sent out by the Welcome Desk.
Given the current situation, in the event it will not be possible for incoming students to arrive in Rome for the start of classes due to travel restrictions related to Covid-19, please note that Luiss University is working to provide alternative solutions, such as online teaching.
For this reason, we invite students to keep in contact with the Welcome Desk regarding their arrival plans.
Although it is still not possible to predict how the situation will evolve in the near future, and for how much longer travel restrictions will remain valid, we are carefully monitoring the evolution of the situation along with Italian authorities, and we will promptly keep you updated on any significant changes.

Welcome Activities

Along with the Freshers’ Week for all students, Luiss is organizing welcome sessions dedicated exclusively to international students, so they may get useful information about our University, the Italian academic system, life in Rome and in Italy. You will soon receive more detailed information from the Welcome Desk for International Students.

Tuition Due Dates

Postponement of payment of the first installment tuition

The University is not forecasting at this time any postponement of tuition fee payments. Students admitted to the program will need to pay fees by 24 July 2020.

Tutors

Initial tutor meetings will be finalized during Freshers’ Week (preferably), or in the first week of lessons. A webinar with tutors (open to both paying students and scholarship winners), will be organized for students admitted thru the international selection process. The webinar will be presented to students in an open Q&A format, to allow for interaction with tutors throughout the presentation.

Scholarships for
Bachelor’s Degree or
Single-Cycle Programs

I would like to apply for one of the 25 scholarships available for future students. Up to 20 points are awarded based on Luiss admission test results. I took part in the selection process devoted to international students. How is my score calculated? In addition, up to 20 points are awarded based on the ISEE means test value. I do not have an ISEE certificate, but I can provide documentation to calculate the value. Can I send it into to you for evaluation? Otherwise, as someone living abroad, what procedures do I have to follow in order to calculate my ISEE value? Finally, does the letter of presentation have to be written by me or is a professor required to write it on my behalf?

The score will be assigned by a Luiss Commission which will evaluate the students’ requirements.

To calculate the ISEE, the student can send the following documentation to Luiss.

a) Income produced by each member of the family unit (2018):

  • Income received by each member of the household for the year 2018;
  • Any other income received from the Public Administration, for assistance, social security or indemnity;
  • Any income received or given for child maintenance in cases of legal separation or divorce.

b) Real estate and moveable assets of each family member as of 31 December 2018:

  • Real estate including buildings: real estate assets located abroad are assessed, only in the case of buildings, based on the conventional value of 500 euro per square meter. The absence of assets must be expressly specified in the documentation.
  • Moveable assets, including the balance as of 31 December 2018 and the average balance for the year 2018, bank and/or post office current accounts, deposits and savings held abroad and in Italy and the balance as of 31 December 2018 of every other type of investment (e.g. bonds, shares, life insurance).

c) Student’s Household:
The members of the student’s household at the time that the DSU is submitted, reporting each family member’s surname, name, date of birth and relationship to the student.

Foreign citizens who do not reside in Italy cannot use the self-certification in any way and the documentation regarding the financial and asset situation of non-EU students must be issued by the competent authorities in the country where the income was generated.
This documentation is provided by the competent foreign diplomatic or consular representatives in Italy but only for countries where there have been demonstrable difficulties in issuing certifications from local Italian embassies.
For foreign students from one of the particularly poor countries identified by the Prime ministerial decree of 03/05/2018 no. 351, the assessment of the income requirement is based on documentation issued by the Italian representative in the Country of origin. The latter shall testify that the student does not belong to a famously high-income family or one with high social standing.
