Thanks boss.
My age declaration is not from NPC but from Federal High Court in Lagos, will this be accepted? or what should I do?
Re: Italian Student Visa-help! by yettyRoot(f): 4:39pm On Apr 09, 2018

1. Apply to universities of your choice.
2. Get admission.
3. Get your NPC birth certificate (if born after December 1992) or birth attestation/declaration of age (if born before December 1992), First or Primary School Leaving Certificate, WAEC or NECO, Degree certificate and Transcripts (if applying for masters) authenticated at the Ministry of Education and Foreign Affairs Abuja.
4. After the authentication, translate your academic and birth documents to Italian language using the embassy approved translator.
5. Book appointment for legalization of documents with the embassy.
6. Legalize your documents at the embassy. Remember to collect your Declaration of Value (DOV) at the stipulated time.
7. Book appointment and do your pre enrollment at the embassy.
8. Book appointment and apply for your visa.

I advice you to concentrate now on applying to universities of your choice. Get the admission and follow the next step above. Best wishes.

Thanks to everyone who has shared their experiences to help the newbies like us.

The only part I've been a bit confused about is authentication at Ministry of and Foreign Affairs Abuja. I'm based in Lagos, does it mean everyone has to go to Abuja for this process or are there other means to do this authentication in Lagos abeg?

It will be accepted, but you also need the NPC Attestation for legalization. Also note that you will be required to submit a copy of the Court affidavit at the NPC office. The information on the two affidavits must be the same.

Another powerful human being coming to disrupt.
Can you code very well?
What’s your background?
There are a lot of opportunities in your chosen field if you know how to network and ask questions in polite ways.
I wish you all the best in your visa application.
Make sure you have enough money to survive your first year oh because Italy isn’t that smiling.
I’m sure you’ll survive.

Hi everyone,

Enjoyed going through the threads, was worth it as I was able to gather some info. Got admission to study Msc inArtificial Intelligence and Robotics at La Sapienza University.

Only thing I'm currently scared of is the opportunity that avails a postgrad student(e.g Work after study life. I know they give a 6-12months permit unlike the UK). I'd love to work for some time but I'm wondering how the job market for international students looks like over there.

Thanks

This has been puzzling me too. Thank you for answering.

I want to know, please, if you can send someone, who lives in Abuja, to do these authentications for you or must you go by yourself?

Thank you very much in advance.

To tell you the truth Italia is bleeped for migrant, yes truely there are less jobs and its mainly for thier locals. but the education is worth it. if you get A Bsc , you can migrate to other EU Nations and find work there.

the =economy in italia isnt favourable, illegal immigration there messed things up most especially for the black race. my friend who returned recently also complianed that the locals there do not what to have any thing to do with Blacks, this is due to mistrust, all thesame Italia is far better than Nigeria.
as for Nigeria too many doors are shut against it while the case is different with italia.

Nigerians may soon have problem with italia as the way things are going. too much Nigerians in italia who are now illegal immigrants

(Any thanks to that particular tribe in the SS?)?

in all dont be discouraged with what i have written still go for italia if u so wish.i say this based on the many negatives coming from the people who have travelled there
God is your strenght

Subtle!! Real Subtle. Saw your shade about the tribe in SS.

hmmmm...personal experience

Life in Italy(Milan, as different cities differ). The life here is quite expensive but if you know your way early enough, then you can cope.

Lesson number 1: Shine your eyes (A little story)
I was determined to get a better life for me and my family, so i left a 120k after tax and pension paying Job in Nigeria, everybody says it was a wrong move even my mind says so too (smiles). The intention was one step at a time, if I no die i go survive i told myself. But money no dey o, my parents said....hmmm. Abi make we use our house for Lagos borrow money?. I said no...make i reach first if e hard, i go come back home (yimu, I pray o).

So i used up my savings from my Job to secure visa(no agent o). Lagos/ugbowo boy, anyway na way. If you need Italian study visa unlock code (ask my fans or send me dm). I studied engineering so to find solution to problems is a hobby. Failed once (2016) and tried again.

Well fast forward...time to book flight, i was scared of getting turned back at the point of entry so i booked return instead of one way. I wasted that money. If i am coming home for Christmas, I have to buy ticket again (Lesson learnt).
I got to Milan, them use microscope check my visa...lol (I am not kidding about the microscope, no be metaphor, na real matters, i was asked to stand aside for like 10 mins i guess).

I spent roughly 25 euros to get to the hostel i booked where I am to pay 23 Euros per night (i no know person). Lesson number 1.1(Find someone you know or u don't know but is willing to help, to save cost: In English Language: Information is Key to Power). Roughly 50 euros gone (feeding money for a month. N.B. ask me how later). Still on lesson number 1.2: They say life basic amenities is food,cloth and shelter (the person no add transportation , abi we wan dey trek 2000 miles). So i started to buy tickets 1.5euros for every 90minutes. Sometimes I buy 3 sometimes 4 per day (Little drops make a mighty ocean, in my case little expenses causes depletion of finances). Lack of information made me miss the almighty scholarship everybody has access to and that was the beginning of my challenge shocked
I stayed 8 nights in the hostel and started to look for options...last minute God paved a way. I moved outside the city to live with some Nigerians (another story entirely) where I pay rent on a monthly, transportation became more expensive because i am outside metropolitan city (na wah o). If you have patience dont spend your money to buy winter jackets, just wait to you get to Italy, u go see better jacket buy for street at 4 euros (talking from experience). Please i beg you in the Name of God...learn italian language just for survival purposes.

Hope this suffices for life in Italy in General.

If you have questions ask and I will answer asap (maybe 5 secs or maybe 5 days grin)


Lesson 2: (Man know thyself)
If you plan on coming here to push drugs, do rituals,hustle meaning beg on the street (since them say no job), or have a career plan...It is your choice. But like i said know yourself else the wind go carry you. So as for Jobs: there are jobs but how do you access this jobs. You can create a Job by providng services (teaching English, translator if you understand Italian, pizza and food delivery guy/babe, get a job as a cleaner, work in a restaurant etc.) if you have services to render o (of course limited patronisation at the starting stage but i guess with time I dont know what will happen...abi I be prophet? No.). Or if you have funds you fit still run importer exporter. But like I said know yourself and planning is key, I am guilty of that so thats why I am telling you. The student must be greater than the teacher IMO. But above all learn the Language.

In addition, my school i dont know if that applies to other schools, created a study plan (Lecture time table in such a way that you have one week day off, and weekends off, the days you have lectures na full day 8-6. Them plan am so you no go fit work but you be Naija nau, you claim to be a hustler, you claim say Naija hard you dey survive so anywhere you find your delf you go still survive abi? grin. Okay good news...no matter what you go still survive. Man know thyself.

Lesson 3: Think Ahead all the time
So this is because you asked if you can work during school holidays (Yes you can as stated online). I neva get school holiday, just two months here and I am still trying to find my feet. Had a lot of challenges(real time challenges I cant say because I cant come and be washing my dirty linens in public but i think they are avoidable if you have funds and you have someone giving you directions) due to finance so life was kinda rough at the initial stage...e dey balance out now gradually.

Also going to other EU states to work...YES. Don't quote me, I heard of and know people that have done or are doing but I never try am. But i am 80% sure it is quite illegal (I stand to be corrected). How much can be made? Hmmm but I never dey work nau. Delivery job that I attended the interview but couldn't sign the contract for some reasons best known to me says 8euros per hour for 40hours a week(but you cant get 40hours a week but maybe 15-30 hours i guess). Teaching English Job that I have registered on platforms but I dont have students yet...dont ask me why 15-25 euros per hour. That's all i know. I also stand to be corrected.

Roaming around Europe is not a challenge within the schengen states...do your resident permit when you get here and start to move as you like. I know one girl wey dey travel frequently. Even this Saturday she get another trip. But na your money dey talk grin.

How they perceive blacks is relative...they are friendly if they know you dont need anything from them and you can speak their language. Even Nigerians attitude to fellow Nigerians worse pass oyinbo attitude to blacks. My experience though which is quite relative and myopic because it is what I experienced.

relationships...yes they can make friends with you, everybody i don meet get boyfriend, but if you need one you go find sha. That one sure...bad as e bad enta club, or any event wey your school organize or social gatherings. Money answereth all things...if you know what I mean. As for sugar mommies and daddy...OYO. Find out yourself LOL...

I hope to write my life experience in Italy someday. It is quite an interesting one. Also need to add that FoFt, but I am sure he won't write lol(sorry for calling you out bro, I am writing this because of the discussion we had about Nigerians that are here that have level but are just chilling instead of showing the upcoming ones the way) has more experience than I do, I have spoken to DanIndia since I got here.

By the way...I am still trying to find my feet. But one thing is sure: where there is a will there is a way.
, Don't be discouraged , only seek counsel. Yours truly...signs out grin
