I think there are many people who want to go on to an overseas university but have given up on it for various reasons. This time, I would like to introduce the Italian Correspondence University for such people. Correspondence university is recommended for such people, for example: I want to take classes from home because I am not feeling well, I am worried about being infected with the new coronavirus, I am worried about living locally, I take classes while working in Japan I want to take classes while raising children, and I want to cherish my leisure time. If you meet this requirement, correspondence universities may be a new option.
This time, I will explain about Pegaso. I haven’t written anything that can be easily understood by looking at the website.
Public or Private: Private
When can I enroll: Anytime (I can enroll immediately on the day I paid)
Class language: Italian
Country where the degree is issued: Italy (same university diploma as Italian face-to-face university)
Features: Low tuition fees. Good reputation from students.
Exam: To take the exam, you must travel to Italy and take the exam face-to-face. Since there are test venues all over Italy, it is possible to take the test in different locations, such as Rome this time and Florence next time. The exam is once every two months. In that case, you can get a student visa and travel, or you can live in Italy with that visa.
Tuition: A total of around 3000 euros. In the case of installment payments, it is possible to pay in four installments, and it was said that the university would be fine. For reference, it costs about 1500 euros a year for a public university in Italy.
Years to graduation: 3 years, depending on the person
Credit transfer: Credit transfer is possible for Italian universities. It’s difficult for universities outside Italy, but it’s worth consulting.
Procedures for admission: Contact the person in charge, email the required documents, and pay the tuition fee.

Why is it an overseas correspondence university?
Correspondence universities overseas have an appeal that Japanese universities do not have. I will explain it in order.
Tuition is cheap: It costs about 30,000 euros to graduate from a Japanese university. By comparison, Italian universities are very cheap to graduate. And although correspondence universities are private, they cost more, but you can still graduate cheaper than Japanese universities and other English-speaking universities.
International: I feel like I’m studying abroad because I can take classes in a foreign language and interact with my teacher in a foreign language. Students also have diverse nationalities and backgrounds.
Advantages for finding a job in Europe: It is an ideal place for anyone who wants to work in Europe as it supports employment in Europe.
Improve your language skills: Using a foreign language in class every day will inevitably improve your language skills.
Actually live in the field: You can actually live in the field because you can issue a student visa. You can take classes in Japan, Italy and other countries.
Leisure time: More free time than face-to-face colleges, giving you more time to travel, fight illness, and work.
