Places: 125 EU students + 25 non-EU students.
Requirements: Secondary School Diploma obtained after at least 12 years of schooling.

Admission: EU* students need to take an entry test at the University of Milano. Non-EU students, who do not live already in Italy (and thus need a VISA), are selected on the basis of their diploma, high school transcript, CV, language certificates, and letter of motivation.
The admission test is also required for students transferring from other Italian or foreign degree programs, who will also be placed in the ranking.
The admission test, based on multiple choice questions, will be used to check that candidates have the background knowledge required for advancement of studies in the following areas: a) Reading comprehension, b) General culture and contemporary events, and c) Logic and mathematics. The minimum threshold is 50% correct answers in each of the three areas. Students admitted with scores below threshold in the area of Logic and mathematics will be assigned additional academic requirements (OFA), i.e. they will be required to attend targeted remedial courses during the first year of study.
Deadlines: Call for admissions (for everyone) will be published in July-August 2019. Entry test for EU students in Milano on September 5, 2019. Non-EU applicants need to file before July 24, 2019 a pre-application request in the Italian diplomatic offices of their country (check here).
Language: A B2-level knowledge of English is a prerequisite to take any exam of this bachelor’s programme. Knowledge of the English language will be tested after the enrollment. In lieu of the language test, students may submit official language certificates earned no more than three years prior to the date of the entry test. Students need to possess some basic knowledge of the Italian language before the end of the programme.
