Admitted applicants who have accepted their offer of admission must enrol in the programme by the deadline. Failure to do so entails permanent exclusion from the Ph.D. programme.

In order to enrol, applicants must have a social security number (the italian “codice fiscale”).
Successful international applicants, who are not living in Italy, should request the social security number at the Italian Consular Office / Embassy that has issued their entry visa for Italy.

The enrolment process has two phases and is considered completed upon conclusion of both phases.

First phase - online enrolment 

PhD candidates must enrol online on the Apply@polito platform and simultaneously pay the cost of the revenue stamp, the Regional tax for the Right to University Education and the insurance.

Applicants who received a “conditional offer of admission” must enrol in the programme by the deadlines following the online procedure exclusively after their provisional condition has been dropped. In particular, they will have to enter the information on their degree or English language certificate (type of degree/certificate, final grade, date and place of conferral).

Second phase - enrolment at the Doctoral School 

Upon conclusion of online enrolment, applicants will be invited to come to the Doctoral School on a specific date and time for the second phase of the enrolment. PhD candidates need to provide the following documents:

  • identification document passport;
  • original hard copy of the English language certificate.

In addition, applicants with a non-Italian academic qualification must also provide:

  • original hard copy of their GRE® General Test, submitted during the application process (except for those who have indicated the Politecnico di Torino code among the Recipient - 6994);
  • original hard copy of their Master’s degree and transcript of records written in Italian, English, French, Portuguese or Spanish by the issuing University.

The research fellowship is not compatible with the PhD scholarship. 

Applicants who are employed must present to the Doctoral School a declaration on their current job.

Applicants who are simultaneously enrolled to other courses must present to the Doctoral School a declaration on their simultaneous enrollment.

Upon conclusion of the enrolment process, PhD candidates will receive their Smart Cards.

The disbursment of the scholarship is subject to the full completion of the enrolment process and to the actual presence of the Ph.D. candidate at Politecnico di Torino. 

In compliance with the provisions on this matter, Ph.D. candidates who receive a scholarship must pay the INPS welfare contributions. It is the Ph.D. candidate's responsibility to register online at this link.
