Intake 2024 simplified for non-EU students.

Since 9th March 2024, some constraints have been relaxed on non-EU students’ applications. An intake 2024 simplified application procedure has been introduced. The relaxed constraints relate to DOV/CIMEA certifications, which is no longer mandatory from the first phases of the application process.
All candidate students must access the admission webpage to read the enrollment rules to apply. An application timeline is accessible from the admission page or from here. It is strongly suggested that candidate students read and comprehend the application rules and timeline carefully before accessing the registration and application forms.

Students who have already applied can update their application by editing the user’s profile on the MSc-TEAM website.

Declaration of Value (DOV) or Certifications of Comparability and Verification (from CIMEA) are no longer mandatory documents in the first stages of the application. The intake 2024 simplified process originates from the late activation of the Certification Services by CIMEA. The uploading of DOV/CIMEA has been moved to the profile form section titled Matching the visa-issuing requirements, which is close to the accommodation and the financial guarantee statements. Uploading the DOV/CIMEA, accommodation, and financial statements at early application stages still allows for better application scoring. When requesting a visa, the DOV/CIMEA must also be uploaded again on the UniversItaly website. Similarly, the accommodation and financial guarantees must be submitted more formally to the Embassy for the visa issue.

It is worth noting that the University of Naples has an agreement with the CIMEA to issue the Declaration of Comparability and Verification (

Important disclaimer

The University of Naples’s assessment of DOV/CIMEA and accommodation and financial guarantee statements are carried out exclusively to score/assess the candidate students’ applications within the intake 2024 simplified process. It is not guaranteed in any way that the Embassy, when issuing the visa, will positively assess documents already evaluated by the University. The University of Naples and the Italian Embassies are separate bodies, acting in total autonomy and based on different missions and visions. The University of Naples never interferes with the work of the Embassies nor advocates the personal position of any candidate student or the scheduling of any interview.

Educational requisites

According to the European Qualifications Framework (EQF), candidate students require a level 6 qualification (or higher). Specifically, the MSc in Transportation Engineering And Mobility requires a bachelor’s in Engineering in one of the classes L7 (Civil and Environmental Engineering), L8 (Computer and ICT Engineering), or L9 (Industrial Engineering).
Suppose candidate students are willing to apply without a bachelor’s degree in engineering. In that case, the admission commission assesses specific conditions. Indeed, the transcript of records must show at least 36 ETCS in basic sciences (maths, physics, etc.), and transcripts should comprise at least 39 ETCS in industrial engineering, information and communication technology, or civil engineering.

Language requisites

Candidate students should provide evidence of English language proficiency at B2 or higher (CEFR level). We accept the certificates issued by specific bodies recognized by the University of Naples Federico II, such as:

  • Cambridge
  • BEC
  • Trinity
  • Others (including Duolingo)

Of course, citizens of countries where English is the native language are exempted from the language proficiency certificate. Note that MOI (Medium of Instruction) certificates are no longer accepted. Even if individual English proficiency testing could be, in theory, done immediately after enrolment, the procedures at Embassies/Consulates for non-EU visas could fail. Accordingly, the pre-admission selection for non-EU students will not be processed without an English certificate, which is, in practice, mandatory.

Steps of the Intake 2024 simplified process

The intake 2024 simplified process for non-EU candidate students is based on the steps listed below:

  • Step 1 – registration as a user of the website
  • Step 2 – updating the user’s profile and uploading the required documents
  • Step 3 – waiting for assessment and evaluation of the uploaded profile and documents
  • Step 4 – in case of a positive assessment, ask for the pre-admission letter (offer letter)
  • Step 5 – register on the UniversItaly platform and upload documents and information for applying for a visa
  • Step 6 – once obtained the visa, enroll (in-person) at the University of Naples Federico II

Documents required

  • Passport;
  • Bachelor’s degree Certificate (students should have attained the final Bachelor’s graduation);
  • Transcript of Records (ToR) with a detailed description of the courses attended and the exams passed for the Bachelor’s degree;
  • A detailed description of the course programs taken;
  • Language certificate (proficiency in the English Language – at least level B2);
  • Curriculum Vitae
  • Motivation letter (Statement of Purpose);
  • Letter/s of recommendation (optional, but useful for a positive assessment);
  • DOV (Declaration of Value) or CIMEA – Academic Equivalence Mobility Information Center (both Comparability and Verification statements)
  • Statement by a third party of sponsorship or private accommodation availability
  • Financial guarantee statement(s) by third parties, for 6.500,00 euro/year for two years
