The selection will be based on the quality of the letter of motivation, the candidate’s experience and the quality, originality and creativity of a project proposal on children’s rights issues.  To apply please click here.


Non EU applicants require a Visa to access Italy.

Students requiring Visas usually need to produce an official letter of invitation from the Summer School to the Visa Office. As these are only issued upon receipt of full payment, we encourage non-EU applicants to apply to the summer school at least 4 months prior the beginning of the school with full payment. Following notification of admission, the school will provide the applicant with an invitation letter confirming that you are offered a place in the programme and the fees are paid.

Visa application process can take several months, we strongly recommend to apply as soon as you receive the invitation letter from the Summer School in order to appeal any refusals.
