PLEASE NOTE: A margin of flexibility is admitted, with respect to the fulfilment of the above minimum curricular requirements, up to a maximum of 10%, or 6 ECTS. This margin may be applied indifferently to only one of the areas listed above or to more groups, except for the English language requirement, which must be always fulfilled.

Language Requirement

6 ECTS in the English Language are required. Otherwise, it is enough to provide an international certification attesting a knowledge equal or higher than the B2 level of the Common European Framework (First Certificate in English). For example, a TOEFL certificate with an iBT total score of B2 level (87-109) or higher is considered equal to the level B2 of the Common European Framework. Otherwise, having studied a Bachelor degree entirely in English also satisfies the  requirement related to the English language.

Selection criteria

The above are the minimal requirements necessary to apply. See detailed info on the selection process/criteria in the Italian Bachelor section or Foreign Bachelor section, depending on your case.
