International Student

Accademia Riaci welcomes students from all over the world. The diverse background of Accademia Riaci’s students creates a rich multicultural community that promotes the exchange of ideas and viewpoints. The staff is multilingual and ready to assist overseas students wherever they attend our programs.

Visto per gli studenti

Per studiare in Italia per periodi più lunghi di 3-6 mesi è richiesto un visto dalla maggior parte dei paesi. Gli studenti possono avere informazioni riguardo alla procedura per il visto dal più vicino Consolato Italiano. Sebbene la procedura per il visto cambi di paese in paese, Vi preghiamo di considerare che sono necessari 30-60 giorni per avere un visto per studenti. Accademia Riaci fornirà agli studenti un “Certificato di iscrizione” che dovrebbe essere considerato dal Consolato locale come un visto per studenti.

Nota: un certificato di iscrizione non può essere rilasciato da Accademia Riaci prima di aver ricevuto il pagamento della quota di iscrizione.

Dopo I’arrivo in Italia
Quando arrivano in Italia gli studenti devono prendere un appuntamento all’Ufficio Informazioni per fissare un incontro personale con lo staff della scuola.
Assicurazione per malattie ed incidenti

Nel caso uno studente straniero non abbia nessuna assicurazione medica internazionale è obbligatorio secondo la legge italiana avere un’assicurazione per le malattie e gli incidenti.


Accademia Riaci has several “Student Flats” (shared apartments) reserved for the academy’s students. Flats come with one or several rooms per apartment, and one room may be shared by students of the same sex, or reserve for a single student.


They are located in either a walkable distance or within a 10 – 15 min. bus ride away from the school campus, and may come with or without a host family. The definite location of the flat will be communicated to each student upon enrollment, by a week prior to the course commencement date.


Bathrooms and kitchens will be shared with your flat mates. Basic cutlery, pots, pans will be available for student use.


Students are allowed to stay at the Student Flats up to 3 months. If their course exceeds this period (Basic, One-year, Semester, and Master Courses), the school will assist students to find a local apartment according to their likings and budget, while they stay at the Student Flats.
