We have a large community of international students here at Solent University and understand that the process of relocating to a new country can be challenging. Students coming from Italy can find a range of advice about obtaining a visa and studying in the UK right here on the Solent website.
For more specific advice about coming from Italy to study, please see the information below. Alternatively, you can contact the British Council's Italy offices or our own international advice team.

As a general guide, we look for qualifications that are equivalent to the British high school A-levels. A portfolio is also required for most of our art and design courses. Students should hold:
- Diploma di Maturita, or
- Esame di Stato.
For postgraduate courses, we look for qualifications that are equivalent to the British bachelor's degree. Students should hold a Diploma di Laurea.
Students from inside the EU, EEA and Switzerland could enter the UK freely by showing their passport or national identity card until 31 December 2020.
If you entered the UK prior to 31 December 2020 you will not require a visa, provided you apply for the EU Settlement Scheme before 30 June 2021. If you are a family member of an individual who has EU Settlement Status, you may also be eligible to apply for the EU Settlement Scheme. More information about the EU Settlement Scheme and family members can be found on the student portal.
Students from the EU, EEA and Switzerland who have not entered UK, or entered on or after 1 January 2021 will require a visa. Please watch the video and visit the visa and immigration pages for more information.

Speak with an official representative
Because you are already in the UK, we strongly recommend attending one of our open days to see the campus and speak to us in person.
However, if you would prefer to speak to someone in your local area about the opportunities here at Solent University, our own team visits various events around the UK, or you could contact one of our official representatives.
