Instead of the Attestati di Comparabilità e di Verifica , it is possible to present the Dichiarazione di valore (DoV) issued by the Italian representation in the country to which the qualification refers, together with the exam certificate, which must always be legalised. The DoV must clearly state that the qualification obtained gives access to third-cycle university studies.

If the qualification is issued in English, a sworn translation into Italian will not be required, but the presentation of the CIMEA's Attestato di Comparabilità e di Verifica or the legalisation of the university qualification will still be compulsory. 

The Diploma Supplement, if complete with all the information necessary for the evaluation of your degree, may eventually replace the aforementioned certificates.

Make sure that the certificates, in addition to stating the number of years of schooling completed before enrolment, also certify the validity of your qualification for access to third-level university studies in the system of the country in which you obtained it.
