In any case, the adequacy of the candidates’ preparation will be verified through an interview, in order to evaluate the basic knowledge of Anatomy of the apparatus, Cardiorespiratory neuromuscular and Exercise physiology.

Within the Erasmus+ project, the School of Sport Sciences offers to its master's students in Sport Sciences of physical activity for fitness to spend part of their time for academic formation by one among nine prestigious European partner universities localised in Spain, Portugal, France, Austria, Norway, Poland, Hungary and Turkey. Erasmus students will have from 2 to a maximum of 12 month each cycle for their Erasmus formation. Remarkably, some University require a certificate demonstrating the level of student's language competence, which is compulsory for admission. During Erasmus, students will have the possibility to attend courses included in their academic curriculum and integrate their formation with alternative and optional courses that are typical of the University geographical contest (e.g. water-base sport, diving, sailing, trekking, skiing ). Alternatively, students could choose for a research-oriented experience and being actively involved in research programs useful for their thesis preparation. They could also have the possibility to perform their external training in centres agreed upon the partner University. Once back to the University of Milan, the passed exams and their relative credits will be integrated in the students' study plan, after ECTS/CFU conversion.
