In order to obtain a study visa for Italy, non-EU citizens must demonstrate that they dispose of sufficient means to support themselves there.
Such evidence may be given by means of economic guarantees provided by:
• Italian credit worthy institutions and entities, or
• foreign Governments, or
• foreign institutions and bodies regarded as reliable by the competent Italian diplomatic authority.
At present, the minimum amount of money regarded as indispensable is Euro 350.57 per month for each month of the academic year.
Mere candidacy to a scholarship from the Italian Government is not considered a valid proof of your capability to support yourself in Italy.
Therefore, if you wish to apply for enrolment in a H.Ed. programme according to the present provisions, and have applied for but not yet obtained a scholarship from the Italian Government, you must submit a document giving evidence of your sustenance capability; it must be valid up to 31 December 2005, as required of all other candidates.
