@PolimodaFirenze: Student Visa

Getting my Italian Student Visa was probably the hardest part in the whole application process for Polimoda.  (Luckily for me, I live in Los Angeles so I had an Italian Consulate Office nearby.) Be sure to apply in advance because you don't want to procrastinate like the way I did. I got my student visa a week before classes started...not smart!!!

To get a Student Visa for Italy, you will need...
  • Proof of accommodations in Italy 
  • Proof of financial means to support yourself while living in Italy
  • Proof of health insurance
  • Proof of school enrollment
Here's a tip on getting proof of accommodations: Contact Clara at Poggio Imperiale. 

Seriously, apply for your Italian Student Visa as soon as possible...pronto!

XOXO
Mimi

    1. I did live with a roommate but had to move out because I needed my own space (we had a nice, big apartment but only one bedroom so our beds were right next to each other. I just needed space! LOL)

      Stay at Poggio Imperiale Apartments for the first month because they can help you with your Student Visa. Then find a roommate once you get to school (try to room with a classmate you get along with) GOOD LUCK =)
