Applicants must:

In relation to the fulfilment of academic curricular requirements, the admission Committee can grant a margin of flexibility of a maximum of 10% of ECTS credits applicable to each sector. This flexibility can be awarded where the student’s profile demonstrates appropriate knowledge and expertise in the relevant areas.

English language requirements
The English entry level requirement is Level B2 of the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages (CEFRL).

Admission interview and evaluation of the applicants’ profile and preparation

In relation to the students’ profile and preparation, particular importance is given to the first cycle degree graduation grade. A grade below 98/110 according to the Italian grading system or the proportional equivalent for foreign academic systems is a
key negative evaluation criterion of the students’ profile and preparation.
