Certificates and Parchments
Certificates, in Italian and/or in English, are issued by the Ph.D. Office upon request. They can be used to certify one’s status as a Ph.D. Candidate to Italian private entities, foreign private and public entities, Italian embassies and consulates abroad.
In order to certify one’s status to the Italian public administration, a self-declaration affidavit (art. 15 of the Law 183/2011) should be used.

- pay through PagoPA
- forward the payment receipt or notification of payment to email@example.com
Once this process is completed, certificate(s) (scanned copies) are sent via UniTO email.
