Requirements to apply to the programme

Students who are interested in applying are required to have:

  • a good knowledge of English (B2 language level). Some form of certificate is required. Knowledge of Italian is not required (students will learn Italian during their first year). Each candidate will have a Skype interview with the Evaluation Committee in order to prove his/her English knowledge;
  • a High School Diploma after studying a minimum of 12 years (i.e.: elementary, middle and high school combined). If you have not finished High School yet you can send your latest school evaluation. American students, please beware that in order to enroll in an Italian university, it is not enough to have 12 years of schooling. You must have also obtained 3 Advanced Placement courses before finishing High School. These courses must include one in Italian and two others in topics related to the degree programme you wish to pursue. Alternatively, there are two other options: you must have either already studied two years of College/University or you must have studied one year of College/University and have studied 4 Advanced Placement courses as described above.

Please, bear in mind that you must follow a pre-enrolment process at the Italian embassy of your country of residence. This process has to be carried out only if students have been accepted and have received the acceptance letter. For more details, please visit the following website.
