How to apply

The admission to the MSc programme is divided in two stages: application and enrolment.

During the first stage, a verification that the applicant fulfills the needed requirements is carried out. Depending on the previous degree (Italian or foreign) and the corresponding final grade, the applicant may be automatically admitted (and proceed to the enrollment) or need to go through a pre-evaluation.

Should a pre-evaluation be necessary, the application will be assessed by the Selection Committee and the applicant will be notified by email of the assessment result within 15 to 45 days from the submission date. If the assessment result is favourable and the applicant is admitted to the programme, one can proceed to the enrolment when available (details here).

Important notice for applicants holding a foreign degree

Applicants holding a degree from non-EU country (excluding Norway, Iceland, Lichtenstein and San Marino) need to apply for a visa. More information here.
