Foreign Student rights
Hello, I am a citizen of RA. I am currently in Milan enrolled in a Master. When I was applying to this Master, there was mentioned that it is a 1 year master with theoretical and practical training (internship). Nothing more was ever mentioned. The master is in English language.

I have already paid as per their requirement whole money in the beginning of master. I have followed all the rules and regulations. When I arrived they started to speak about the fact that it is necessary to know basic Italian for Internship, which was never ever mentioned while I was coming (the master is fully in English and international).
However, I have passed their test. And I do know BASIC Italian.
Yesterday they told me it is impossible to find internship for me because companies want somebody with very good knowledge of Italian.
They knew I don't know Italian when I was coming. They knew it is impossible to learn Italian in 6 months from January to now. There was nothing mentioned about the impossibility before.

What should I do now ? I asked them to reimburse the second part of the Master if they don't comply with rules, but in case they don't agree what shall I do ? Where can I complain about the violation of my rights and cheating ? They took my money and now they want to terminate my case with violating my rights. (Note: until now they provided me only one interview, and all their deductions are based on this Interview).

Thank You

Reply to the complaint
I do feel sorry for your bad experience traveling to Spain.
However, this is not the Italian Embassy page, why would you complaint here. In your newspaper interview you said you still had 3 weeks before your departure. Good enough time to return tickets and cancel your hotel reservations, thus avoiding financial losses.
All the rest of the hassle, yeah, there is not a single Embassy guaranteeing 100% entry visa granted. You should have been prepared for that.

complaint - Italian Embassy in Armenia abused our human rights
To Whom It May Concern,

Yesterday (may 31th) I supposed to pass my documents to Italian embassy in Armenia in order to get a Spanish visa (we don’t have a Spanish embassy in Armenia and Italian embassy was in charge of providing us with it). I bought tickets 2 months ago, I booked a hotel, I paid for ravel insurance and eventually I reserved a day in embassy in order to pass my documents for review 45! days ago. My appointments was yesterday (may 31th) at 10am. I got there in the morning and was told that overnight they got some letter from someone that from now on they are not going to provide Armenian citizens with visas to Spain.

What an inappropriate attitude for someone that represents Italy in Armenia!!! They are doing what they want. I consider this as human rights abuse, as my personal human rights abuse!
For your information the rejection was on the security level, no any officials came down in order to officially explain something and say sorry. In one word today Italian embassy showed up their full "respect" to Armenian nation, they treated us as garbage!!!
For your information I wasn't even able to return my tickets because I need official visa refusal letter, but they refused to give it to me!!! Security guard says that they are not going to provide us with one, in fact they just don’t care.

Instead of sorry they showed me the piece of paper on their wall (I made a photo, this is in Italian and in Armenian, please find it attached), that says that from June 1st Italian embassy are not going to provide us with visas to Spain, they told me that this piece of paper is enough telling that I won't get anything else, no any official explanation, just this piece of paper that they actually took down right after I called the TV that was filming us!!! By the way please note that the date stated on this paper is June 1st, but I was there on May 31. Full disrespect.

Please take care of this situation and make sure that in the future they (Italian officials in Armenia) treat us as equal.

I was also interviewed by Armenian newspaper and here is the link for published article:

Thank you very much for you time,
Anna Kurghinyan
