Applications are reviewed by Universities and Higher Education Institutions. Admitted students will receive further instructions on the same website.

The Embassy of Italy in Yangon may only issue Declarations concerning certificates issued by schools or Universities in the Myanmar educational system.

The required documents are the following:

Tuition Fees

Italy is renowned for a an excellent higher education at an affordable cost. Tuition fees are set by each Institution; they are calculated on the basis of the student's family income and can vary according to the course. Fee payment terms and conditions should be verified with the respective University or Higher Education Institution. 

Myanmar is included in the list of particularly poor countries by the Ministerial Decree pursuant to Art. 13 of the Decree of the President of the Council of Ministers 9 April 2001 "Regulation on equal treatment regarding the right to higher education". Students coming from Myanmar may ask our Consular Office to issue a document certifying that the student does not belong to a well-known high income and high social status family, in order to reduce their tuition fees and apply for other benefits (e.g. student housing, scholarships awarded by Universities or Regional Authorities for the Right to Higher Education). The Embassy may verify the student's family income by requiring proof of income of family members, properties, assets etc.

The tuition fees may be waived based on merit by individual Universities to talented international students.

Once the pre-enrollment has been successfully completed and requirements by the University are fulfilled, admitted students can apply for a study visa by contacting our Visa Office.
