Pak students facing troubles in pre-enrolment in Italy
STAFF REPORT ISB: About 80 Pakistani students, admitted to undergraduate and graduate programmes in Italian universities, are struggling to get their pre-enrolment document necessary for their visa applications.
As a part of the enrolment process, the students applying to universities in Italy after being granted admission, have to schedule pre-enrolment appointment and submit their documents to the Italian embassy. The embassy in collaboration with the HEC then verifies academic documents and shortlists students who are then eligible to apply for a student visa. Each year from March, the Italian embassy requests students who are granted admissions to schedule for pre-enrolment. “I am facing extreme stress. I withdrew from a university in Pakistan and I was unable to transfer my credit hours anywhere except Italy,” he said.
