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 have been admitted to a PhD programme “under condition” are allowed to enrol online by the deadlines illustrated in the Call for Applications after completing the following steps:

  • applicants who obtained their Master’s degree after the deadlines for application submission (art. 7, par. 1) must enter the data of their degree, clearly specifying the grade, date and place of degree conferral.
  • applicants who earned their English language certificate after the deadlines for application submission (art. 7, par. 1) must enter the data of their certificate, clearly specifying the grade, date and place of conferral.

Second phase - enrolment at the PhD Programmes Hub

At the end of the online enrolment process (phase 1), the PhD candidates’ status will correspond to “IMMATRICOLAZIONE DA COMPLETARE” (i.e., “ENROLMENT TO BE COMPLETED”). To complete the enrolment and activate the status, applicants need to book an appointment with the staff of the PhD Programmes Hub from the Teaching Portal (Booking tool) for the second phase of the enrolment process. The applicant must come to the PhD Programmes Hub office and present:

  • valid identity card or passport;
  • original certificate attesting the knowledge of the English language, as required by art. 6, par. 1, letter b) or, if exempted as provided for in art. 6, par. 1, letter b), an official statement from the Institute certifying that the entire academic course was conducted in English;
  • Bachelor’s degree diploma + Master’s degree diploma + transcript of records of the exams (both Bachelor’s Degree and Master’s Degree) written in one of the languages specified in art. 7, par. 2, letter b (only if obtained abroad);
  • receipt of the Italian Revenue Agency certifying the assignment of the fiscal code (only for non-Italian citizens).

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

Applicants who are concurrently enrolled in other courses must present to the Doctoral School a declaration on their concurrent enrollment.

The enrolment process ends with the delivery of the Polito Smart Card to the PhD candidate.

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.
