Applying for an Italian Visa

Non-European MathMods Students selected to study at the University of L'Aquila will need to apply for a student visa at the nearest Italian Embassy. The visa application requirements and processing time can be lengthy, taking anywhere from a few weeks up to several months. It is very important that you contact the nearest Italian Embassy for information as early as possible in the application process.

When the evaluation process is concluded and the adequate students have been selected by the Consortium, the University of L'Aquila will issue a Confirmation document (invitation letter), which will enable you to apply for a student visa.

All students, both European and non-European ones, must be adequately insured against accident, injury and ill-health while participating in an Erasmus Mundus Masters Course outside their home country. Personal medical cover is required in most European countries, even those which have a public health system. You may also want to consider travel insurance, which protects you, your travel documents and your belongings while you are away from home.

As looking for accommodation for a semester only can be quite tough, the MathMods team will take care of finding proper accommodation options in L'Aquila for all participants. The cost per person ranges from 300 to 400 euros per month if you are going to stay in a student's flats or halls (utility bills included). If you are staying for the whole year, it is cheaper to stay in private apartments (prices ranging from 200 to 300 euros per month, bills not included). Students will receive detailed information by email about accommodation in good time before leaving their own country (usually in July), along with contracts and instructions on how to pay for the deposit, if applicable.
