Students from countries which are not members of the EU and who intend to stay in Italy longer than three months, need a Study Visa issued by the Italian embassy in their own country. To obtain the study visa they need the certificate of enrollment from our school as well as other documents requested by the embassy. The necessary documentation is sent to those who have enrolled as soon as the school receives the deposit and confirms the student’s enrollment. In any case we advice students to enquire about bureaucratic procedures at their embassies before they make reservations and come to Italy, as laws and regulations vary considerably from country to country.
Students from non-EU countries are requested to take out a private health insurance for six months or one year. We advice our students to enquire about it at their Italian embassies. European students can apply to their private or public health insurance for the E111 form.
Every year the Istituto Il David offers a limited number of scholarships to some Italian Culture Institutes based in a number of cities throughout the world and to some international universities. Applications should be sent directly to the Italian Language and Culture Institute or to the University.
On request, the school offers insurance for full refund in case of cancellation within two days before the student’s arrival in Florence.
