Application and admission: Open with entry requirements examination. 

To be admitted, students must be in possession of a medical certificate for competitive sports. Candidates who do not do sports must present the following certificate, in accordance with Italian law: “Certificato di idoneità alla pratica sportiva: certificazione rilasciata ad atleta non avente la qualifica di agonista, ex art. 4 D.M. 24/04/2013, per il quale sono stati eseguiti tutti gli accertamenti diagnostici previsti dallo stesso decreto ministeriale” (“Certificate of eligibility for sporting activities: certification issued to an athlete who does not have the status of an agonist, pursuant to art. 4 of the Ministerial decree 24/04/2013, for which all the diagnostic tests required by the same decree have been carried out”).

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 locomotor system, Exercise physiology, and Training theory and methodology.

Within the Erasmus+ project, the School of Sport Sciences offers to its master's students in Sport Sciences, Technique and Sport Didactic 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.
