Declaration of Value


The "Declaration of Value" is a document that certifies the value of a qualification obtained in an educational system different from the Italian one. It is written in Italian and issued by the Italian diplomatic missions abroad (Embassies / Consulates) "competent by area", that is to say the closest to the city in which the institution issuing the foreign qualification is located.

The purposes for which the Declaration of Value may be required are:
a) continuation of school and university studies;
b) enrolment at the Universities;
c) approval of a university degree for the continuation of post-graduate studies (masters, doctorates, etc.);
d) equivalence.
