1. Entry requirements

Refer to the page How to apply for general requirements.


2. Programmes with admission test/selection

For undergraduate programmes, is necessary to apply for an admission test/selection: a few tests are selective and competitive (e.g. Medicine and Surgery, Veterinary Medicine, Health Professions), others are non selective, however mandatory, and aimed at assessing applicants knowledges in specific disciplinary fields. Other programmes select candidates on the basis of the high school performance. Check our course catalogue to have detailed information about your course.

It is very important to register to the test in time, following the instructions in the call for applications of each course.

In any case enrolment will not be possible if you do not take the test required.
