I am a Brazilian citizen, however I have just completed my undergraduate degree in the UK (my visa is expiring in one week) and my parents live in Germany. I have been accepted into a masters programme in Italy starting in February and need to apply for a student visa.
My problem is that I have no proof of residency in Brazil, as I do not live there nor do I have family that I can stay with. There is no way for me to go back to Brazil at the moment.
Can I apply for an Italian student visa while staying with my parents as a tourist in Germany?
Alternatively, could I enter Italy as a tourist and then apply for a student visa from there?
