  • it must be sharp and in focus
  • must have good quality
  • it cannot be a scan of a passport photo
  • the file format must be .jpg, .jpeg, .bmp, .png or .pjpeg
  • the file must weigh a maximum of 60 MByte.

The photo must have the same features as those required by the ICAO picture standard.

How to check if your picture is validated

Once the picture has been validated by UniTrento Staff, you will be able to see it in the following digital platforms:

  • in the UniTrentoApp your picture is your profile picture and the Student eCard is active (if you are enroled in a study course that allows you to have the Student eCard)

  • in the widget "Foto studenti" on MyUnitn website

Your picture can be seen in other UniTrento systems and online services, such as in Esse3 or in the elearning communities (Moodle), according to the access and personal data processing regulations.
