THE BEAUTY OF EMBRACING NEW PERSPECTIVES

Recognition of foreign qualifications

The request of recognition form can be submitted for the validation and recognition of a foreign academic degree or qualification, having equivalence with a qualification issued by UNINT University.

Italian students, EU students, non-EU students (EU equivalents), non-EU students living abroad and Italian students with a foreign qualification are all eligible for this recognition.

Under the Law 11th July 2002, No.148 for the ratification and implementation of the Lisbon Convention of 11th April 1997, universities have the authority to recognise study periods abroad and foreign qualifications and degrees in order to guarantee access to Higher Education, the continuation of University Education, and the achievement of Italian academic qualifications. Universities can exercise such jurisdiction autonomously and in accordance with their own regulations, without prejudice to bilateral agreements.

Please submit the following documents to the Student Administration Office if you wish your qualifications to be recognised:
