What's Pre-Enrolment?
The Pre-enrolment procedure applies to all Non-EU applicants living outside Italy who need a study visa type-D to enter Italy for enrollment in an Italian University. If you fall under this category, along with your application to Politecnico di Torino, you MUST also submit a pre-enrolment application on-line through the UNIVERSITALY portal.
NB: Pre-enrolment procedure is MANDATORY for NON-EU candidates living outside of Italy
All information on how to complete the pre-enrolment application is available in the 
Universitaly portal. Read instructions!

This information is important and will allow us to speed up validation procedure.

Pre-enrolment applications are open from April 16th until July 30th, 2021*.
If you do not submit your pre-enrollment application within this deadline you will not be able to complete the enrolment procedure at Politecnico di Torino.
Politecnico di Torino will validate your pre-enrolment application ONLY once:
  • the SAT/GRE/GMAT certification you submitted get approved by Politecnico di Torino and therefore you have been exempted from taking the TIL-I test (article 14 of the Call for admissions)
  • you get a TIL-I -D -P score higher than or equal to the guaranteed threshold (60/100) which enable applicants to enrol immediately in the programme of first preference
  • you get a TIL-I score higher than or equal to the guaranteed threshold (30/100) for the admission to any Bachelor’s degree programme of the Engineering area. Please note that with this score you have to wait for the ranking list in order to know in which programme you can enrol. This ranking list will be published on Tuesday 7 th September 2021
  • you pass the TIL-A (Architettura-Architecture) and you are ASSEGNATO in the ranking published on Friday 30th July 2021. If you are ASSEGNATO you must enrol online within Tuesday 3 August 2021 at 12:00 noon as explained in the specific Call for admission.
N.B. In case your score in TIL-I -D -P is higher than or equal to the minimum threshold (20/100) you can decide to wait until the 7th September 2021, when the ranking list will be published. You will then verify if you are conveniently placed in the ranking list in order to enrol. Alternatively, you can take the TIL-I again in one or more subsequent sessions. In this case the score obtained in the latest test invalidates the score obtained in previous tests. The Confirmation of eligibility will be available when the ranking list is published and only in case you will be ASSIGNED a place.
Once the validation is done, you will receive a notification by Universitaly. Moreover you will be able to check the date of validation in the MAIN section of your PoliTO application as well. For those reasons, we kindly ask you not to send tickets for information about the validation of your pre-enrolment.
Once the pre-enrolment application is validated by PoliTO you should promptly arrange for a visa application for study purposes at the diplomatic-consular Missions of reference in your country of residence. This visa is necessary to enter Italy and complete the enrolment procedure. Please contact them directly to know about documents required for visa which are also available here. Please note that Unitalia Association can assist you in the pre-enrolment and visa application process, you may refer to Uni-Italia Center in your country if available.
