How to request a certificate

Certificates can be requested in your personal page of the Online Services, selecting "Certificate and self certification request. We can produce:

  • admission certificate
  • career certificate
  • certificate valid for the residence permit
  • pre-compiled self-certification form

Because of Law 183/2011 Article 15, starting from 01/01/2012, public administrations or public services operators cannot accept certificates from other public administrations. Interested parties, in the cases above, can only produce self-certifications. 

We can make cerificates or declarations with or without stamps:

  • Declarations without tax stamps:  only valid to be sent directly to embassies/consulates or Study visa applications
  • Certificates with tax stamps: to give directly to the PhD student (i.e.  declarations required for the Residence permit).

The tax stamps can be paid online by credit card with PagoPA; you can then:

  • download a digitally signed certificate
  • request the delivery to your home
  • collect it at the desk of the PhD Secretariat, by appointment (see Contacts page)

Please note, the certificate will be available after 2 working days from the request .

The following will be written on these certificates with a tax stamp on them "This certificate, valid in foreign countries, is not valid for public administrations and public services operators"
