ADMISSION PROCEDURE

Admission is articulated in a main subject audition (materia caratterizzante), an Italian language test (for foreign students only) and up to four Fundamental subjects tests. Depending on the outcome of the main subject test, a ranking list of eligible candidates will be drawn up. Enrollment will follow the order of the ranking list, depending on availability for each Course.

Non-eligible candidates can neither access to the subsequent tests, nor be declared eligible even in the presence of vacancies.

Italian language and Fundamental subjects tests do not modify main subject audition results and the corresponding ranking list, but may require one of the following options:

a) enrollment as a regular student with contemporary attendance of remerdial course(s)

  • Italian language strenghtening course (annual course, compulsory attendance)
