The application must be completed and submitted by the above deadline, solely by the online system:
https://webapps.unitn.it/Apply/en/Web/Home/dott
The application which you must select is "Doctoral School in Information Engineering and Computer Science 37th cycle - Second Call 2021"

Please note that applicants who do not have an account at the University of Trento must register in advance at: https://www.unitn.it/account

The application shall be subject to the payment of an application fee - non-refundable - amounting to € 15 to be paid by credit card, according to the instructions given in the application. 

Applicants are advised to register well in advance with respect of the deadline because the issue of the username and password (sent via email), necessary to enter UNITN’s online services, may require up to 2 working days. 

The administration strongly recommends that applicants ensure that they have received the notification email confirming the definitive completion of the application procedure.
