Pre-enrolment change and reallocation

Information for non-EU students residing abroad on how to change the pre-enrolment degree programme or university.

The updated methods for A.Y. 2022/23 will be available from March 2022.

Change of your pre-enrolment degree programme at the University of Bologna

You can make a pre-enrolment change if you are in the following situation:

  • you are a non-EU student residing abroad and
  • you have pre-enrolled in a degree programme at the University of Bologna, and your pre-enrolment application has already been validated by the University of Bologna  through Universitaly.it and
  • you need to change your pre-enrolment, for example because you have carried out the procedures and  have been admitted to a different degree programme.

Please remember that if you are interested in a degree programme taught in Italian, you need to meet the Italian language requirement.

Make sure, through the “dichiarazione di valore” (Declaration of value), that your qualification is valid for the new degree programme you have chosen. The final qualification check will be done by the Student Administration Office at matriculation.

Fill in and send the pre-enrolment change form, which will be available in the attachments of this page, from your @ studio.unibo.it box to the International Desk of the University of Bologna.

Important: the signature on the form must be handwritten, legible and complete; it must include your entire name and surname as shown on the enclosed copy of your passport or identity document, in the Latin alphabet.

The offices will check the requirements for enrolling in the new degree programme. The results will be notified to you by email.

Important: you can only apply for one pre-enrolment change.
