Latest news on IED Italy Undergraduate admission and enrolment procedures

IED is committed to constantly improving students’ experience, and is happy to announce some important updates related the IED Italy Undergraduate admission process for students holding international diplomas:

It has been recently signed an agreement between IED and CIMEA (Information Centre on Academic Mobility and Equivalence), official italian member of ENIC/NARIC network, thus offering a new service for holders of non-Italian qualifications.

The service aims to support candidates enrolling in IED First Level Academic Diploma programmes by improving the process of evaluation and verification of foreign qualifications, simplifying time-consuming procedures and reducing the number of documents required.

Candidates can ask CIMEA for the Statement of Verification (that can be submitted in place of the LEGALIZATION/APOSTILLE) and/or the Statement of Comparability (that can be subimitted in place of the DECLARATION OF VALUE) by accessing the webpage specifically devoted to IED applicants on Diplome platform:

Moreover, further digital tools have been activated for the verification of specific international diplomas:
