EGEI students in academic year 2023-24 will start the first semester at the University of Lille (France) and will also enrol (online) at the Unversity of Bari (coordinating institution of the EGEI consortium).
Upon arrival in France, you’ll be guided and assisted in order to complete your enrolment at both Insitutions. The enrolment process involves a preliminary online phase (registration on the University information system, online pre-enrolment and fee payment).
To finalize your enrolment, you’ll then have to submit your translated and legalized qualifications, which include, depending on the case:
Declaration of Value (DoV)
The DoV is a document providing an official description of your academic certificates, duly legalized by the Consular office of the Italian Embassy in the country where such degree was gained.
(as an alternative to DoV) CIMEA certificate of comparability
CIMEA has implemented a service of certification and comparison of Italian and foreign qualifications, with a view to rendering qualifications increasingly more comprehensible and recognizable. You have to use the MyDiplome platform from this link: CIMEA-UniBari–
Note that the local Diplomatic-consular mission might still require that you obtain a Declaration of Value (DoV) in order to issue your study visa, although our university accepts either CIMEA or DoV as of academic year 2021/2022. If that is the case, you will have to go through the DoV request process instead of the CIMEA statements, which can be much lenghtier, so make sure you start the whole process in good time in advance.
(optional) Diploma supplement
You may submit a Diploma Supplement (a document accompanying a higher education diploma ) to certify your previous qualification only if you gained your undergraduate degree from an EU institution issuing Diploma Supplements.
Registration at other Universities of the EGEI consortium that you will visit after Semester 1
You will be registered also at other Institutions of the EGEI consortium in order to immediately benefit of online resources (ex. access to databases, e-journals, software).
