Italian Recognition of JCU Degrees
An apostille is a form of authentication issued to documents for use in countries that participate in the Hague Convention of 1961. The Office of the Secretary of State provides apostille and authentication service to U.S. citizens and foreign nationals on documents that will be used overseas. An apostille is required as part of the process for the Dichiarazione di Valore.
Dichiarazione di Valore
Non-EU students who need a Study Visa to continue their studies in Italy require this documentation. It is an official document that provides a short description of a certain academic or professional qualification, awarded to a specific person by an institution belonging to an educational system other than the Italian one. Some Italian universities may also require EU students to submit the Dichiarazione di Valore.
Statement of Comparability
EU students require this Statement for admission to an Italian university. It contains general information related to the foreign university qualification such as recognition/accreditation status of the issuing institution and the level of the qualification according to the Bologna Process and the European Qualifications Framework. Some Italian universities may also require EU students to submit the Dichiarazione di Valore (see above).
