Communication and Society (CES)
The Bachelor's degree programme in Communication and Society aims to provide graduates with a solid baseline of knowledge in the main areas of communication, and a good command of the methods and techniques that will help them acquire the skills required to access multiple professions in communication.
In order to be admitted to the programme, candidates must take a test, which will assess their language and communication skills.
Admission to the programme is subject to a mandatory online test delivered by CISIA (Interuniversity Consortium for Integrated Access Systems): TOLC-E. Candidates must achieve the minimum scores set forth in the call for applications.
Students who fall short of the threshold set forth in the call for applications in the area of written comprehension will have to fulfil additional training requirements (OFA) by attending a course or workshop, including online, or by reading supplementary study materials. The OFA shall be satisfied and assessed within Year I of the programme.
For information on how to fulfil the OFA, please refer to the University portal, Study area of the Faculty of Political, Economic and Social Sciences.
Students who do not fulfil these requirements within the deadline must enrol in the following academic year as students repeating Year I, and will not be able to take any exams for years following Year I.
English language OFA
In order to take the English language exam required by the study plan, students must be proficient in English at a B1 level under the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages (CEFR). English-language proficiency may be certified as follows:
- through a language certification, earned within three years prior to the date of submission, at a B1 level or higher (for the list of language certifications recognised by the University, please review: https://www.unimi.it/it/studiare/competenze-linguistiche/placement-test-test-di-ingresso-e-corsi-di-inglese). The certificate must be uploaded at enrolment;
- through a Placement Test, administered by SLAM during Year I, from October to December. Should a student fail the test, he/she must take the course provided by SLAM.
The Placement Test is mandatory for all students who fail to submit a valid certificate.
Those who do not take the Placement Test by December, or who fail to pass the final exam for the course within six attempts, must obtain an outside (paid) certification by the programme year contemplated for their exam in English.
Students can attend a semester in the faculties and graduate courses of the Australian universities specified in the agreements, and their Australian exams will be recognized in Milano, as in the Erasmus program. An excellent knowledge of the English language, properly certified, is required to participate. Special calls establish other conditions to enter the selection. These exchanges do not enjoy any financial support from the University of Milano.
