Please note that in order to take the entry test you will need to have the following:

  • a personal computer;
  • a smartphone or tablet;
  • an internet connection via Wi-Fi or a smartphone.

All of the guidelines and technical requirements are communicated in this video [ITA] about taking the test.

Verification and fulfillment of OFA (Additional Learning Requirements)

To access the degree programme, a basic understanding of Italian language and an understanding of English at level B1, at least, is required.

The admission test acts as validation for basic understanding of Italian language. In case of failure, or if you achieve a mark lower than 10 as a sum of the marks obtained from the 30 Italian language questions, you will be assigned an OFA to carry out by September 2022.

Regarding knowledge of English language, students whom have achieved one of the certificates verified by the university are excluded from the obligation to verify their understanding of English. The list of linguistic certificates, cases of exemption for verification and the process of verification are described in the specific web page. On the contrary, they will be assigned an OFA to carry out by 30th September 2022. After this data, in such case that the OFA is not carried out, it will not be possible for that candidate to sit the examinations.

Students who have been assigned an OFA in English language cannot take exams relative to the subjects corresponding to the disciplinary field (SSD L-LIN/ 11 e L-LIN/ 12), as long as they have not fulfilled the same obligation.

Students that have enrolled in a subsequent year to their first, such as in cases of transfer, internal paths or matriculation with credit recognition, should have fulfilled the OFA by the time they are enrolled: they cannot take exams until they have fulfilled them nor may they participate in the eligibility tests organized for freshers.

Place acceptance and enrollment

Procedure

Accepting the place requires matriculation of the candidates in successful positions on the admission ranking list, and one ‘slips’ on the list on the basis of possible places still available, according to what is required on the selection announcement. Possible remaining vacant spots after this ranking slip can be re-assessed.

If you succeed in obtaining a place from the ranking list, you must accept your place through the specific online procedure by 2nd September 2021.

Accepting the place coincides with matriculation and consists of two steps:

  • completion of the online pre-matriculation form;
  • Payment of the first installment of the tuition fees and university taxes: the payment must be carried out using the PagoPA system, clicking on the payment button when finishing the registration procedure. The payment will not be reimbursed under no circumstances.

Processing registration form

Accepting the place and payment of the first installment does not mean that the student is automatically enrolled. Enrollment will be developed by the Matriculation Sector and communicated via email.

For students who have obtained a degree outside Italy, enrollment will be possible only after the pre-evaluation procedure. For more information please contact the Welcome Unit.
