Since courses are entirely taught and assessed in English, admission to the degree programme is subject also to the assessment of the proficiency in English language. Applicants are required to have at least an intermediate level (B2 accordingly to the Common European Framework for Languages). The English language requirement may be considered fulfilled in the following cases:  

  • Certification by the Centro Linguistico di Ateneo (CLA)

  • Other international recognised English Language certification that the Admission Board might deem appropriate

  • The applicant has passed an OLS Test in English obtaining the B2 level  

The applicant is asked to attach any useful document that can certify their declaration or be of any help in evaluating their English proficiency. A declaration without any document attesting its value may be judged incomplete.
