|Marco Polo and Turandot Programmes 2015/2016
Procedure to pre-enroll to Italian Universities and Art Institutes with Italian language courses specifically targeted for Chinese students.
To enhance the opportunities for Hong Kong and Macao students to study in Italy, the Italian government has extended also to the two S.A.R.’s the Marco Polo and Turandot programmes, already in force for the Mainland China’s students.
The program allows students without previous knowledge of Italian language to attend a language course in Italy for 8 months, before starting the chosen course at the Italian University for the Academic year 2015-2016.
The students should first choose the University course in the list of Universities/Art Institutes, which reserved places for Chinese students: http://www.studiare-in-italia.it/studentistranieri - posti risevati nelle unversità italiane.
Application period: From October 7th to December 5th 2014
Students must submit the following documentation to the Consulate General of Italy in Hong Kong for the pre-enrollment to the University:
- Form A (click here) or Form A bis (click here), Form F (click here) or Form F bis (click here) for the application to the University;
- 2 passport-sized pictures;
- The original study certificate, duly apostilled and translated into Italian (please note that the Consulate does not provide translation services);

Students should directly choose and enroll into the Italian language course in the university where they would like to study, according to the availability of places to be checked in the web site: http://www.studiare-in-italia.it/studentistranieri - corsi di lingua italiana/servizi.
