Our Medicine and Surgery Degree Programme has been active since A.Y. 2017/18. This means that course years will be activated one at a time, as follows:

Until the programme is fully activated (A.Y. 2022/23), transfer and admission to course years other that Year 1 may be possible only for active years (e.g. Year 6 is not active in A.Y. 2021/22, so no application for transfer or admission to Year 6 is possible for A.Y. 2021/22).


Do you have any language requirement?

Yes – see ‘General information on admission requirements’ box at the top of this page.


Do you require English language certificates?

English language knowledge and skills at the required are assessed during the admission test. English language qualifications were not a mandatory requirement as of 2022/23; however, candidates who held one could use it in case of a tie in their IMAT score (see 2022/23 call for applications on this page).


Do you require Italian language certificates?

Our 6-year Medicine and Surgery programme is fully taught in English; however, we do require students to have or reach at least the required level of Italian language in order to access clinical clerkships from Year 2 onwards, as they will have to interact with Italian-speaking patients. Italian language qualifications are not required prior to or upon enrolment – students may choose to attend language courses during Year 1. We do not offer preparation courses prior to enrolment. See the list of accepted qualifications for the Italian language requirement.

Tuition Fee Amounts

First year students with an ISEE value up to a specific threshold benefit from full exemption; the relevant ISEE threshold will be released by the end of May 2023. Above this limit, tuition fees are calculated progressively.

The ISEE value must be submitted, even if you have not enrolled in the Degree Programme, by 30 October 2023, at 6:00pm (or by 15 November 2023, at 6:00pm, paying a €100 penalty) accessing ER-GO Online Services, alternatively you will have to pay the full amount.
