Student Services

Support via email is available to our students and applicants throughout the year (responses are usually given in no more than 48 hours) in order to handle as many practical matters as possible, for example:

  • applicants are assisted in all the pre-enrolement matters (how to apply, details on EM scholarships, documents required, queries about the study programme, etc.);
  • selected students receive all the support they may need before actually joining our programme: invitation letters, visa, embassies, health insurance proposal and stipulation, accommodation offers and contract stipulation;
  • enrolled students keep being assisted on many occasions, as when documents for various purposes need to be produced (registration certificates, transcripts of records, payment receipts...).

Direct support is offered by our teams and international offices at each node to handle matters related to students' accommodation, arrival, health care and the like. Our dedicated MathMods Teams are made up of experienced welfare advisers, who can give help and advice on a variety of subjects, including general and personal matters. We also organise a couple of social events for international students, which include trips to the surrounding areas and dinners. Some examples of the support services available to our students are given below:

  • general welfare issues;
  • advice on academic policies and procedures;
  • issues relating to our program, academic progress, failure or exclusion;
  • information about the university and local community;
  • accommodation after arrival (pick up service and transfer to students' flats, welcome meeting, getting oriented);
  • official enrolment at university;
  • applying for and receiving a residence permit, opening a bank account, getting an Italian tax number (codice fiscale), getting transport passes as well as and canteen tickets (available at a reduced price for our students in all the institutions of the Consortium or even for free in some cases);
  • other daily needs like buying a local sim card, finding a doctor/dentist, being in contact with landlords and many other situations where language support might be required.
