Key Documents

  ISEE (Equivalent Economic Status Index)

ISEE is an official certificate which indicates your financial standing in any given year on the basis of family status, earnings, property and expenses. You will need to provide information and documentation regarding you and your family’s annual income and assets including:

  • Family income earned abroad: you will need to provide all the necessary information regarding number of family members, each member’s annual income and property assets indicated in euros. These documents need to be legalised by the Italian Embassy or Consulate in your home country.
  • Family income earned in Italy (if any): you will also need to provide Italian Income Tax Returns for all family members as well as information regarding real estate and other property assets.
  • Family income earned partly in Italy and partly abroad: for income earned in Italy, you should provide the Income Tax Return; for income earned abroad it will need to be declared and legalised by the Italian Consulate in your home country.

Please be aware that you might need several months to collect the documents required to obtain the ISEE Certificate, have them translated and legalised, etc. We therefore strongly recommend to start the process as soon as possible.

  Richiesta di Agevolazioni - Application for benefits

After the calculation of the ISEE Certificate, you need to fill in and confirm the “Richiesta di Agevolazioni” to apply for the economic benefits offered by the University.

The application form is available from July of every year in your reserved area on Uniweb: check “Diritto allo studio - Certificazioni di disabilità/dislessia, Corsi estivi”.

  Tax code

The Italian tax code (codice fiscale) is an alphanumeric code which allows Italian authorities to identify any person. The tax code is essential if you need to carry out to sign a contract in Italy,  to open a bank account, and to access many public services (including health services). It is also needed to enrol at the University of Padova.

The tax code is issued by the Italian Revenue Agency (Agenzia delle Entrate). You can apply for a tax code following one of the procedures detailed below:

  • Apply directly at the Italian consular authorities in your country of residence (recommended). Visit the website of the Italian consulate/embassy in your country for further information
