- To develop in our graduates the qualities needed to become the next generation of high quality chemists operating in chemical research, chemical industry and in the teaching of chemistry
- To make our students realize that chemistry is a fundamental discipline, central to the development of a modern and concerned society
- To provide intellectual stimuli and practical skills for highly determined graduates willing to play leading roles and undertake brilliant careers in the society
In particular, graduates in Industrial Chemistry are expected to gain the following skills:
- The basic knowledge in mathematics and physics to deal with chemical principles and concepts on a scientific basis.
- The ability to understand the practical implications of a wide range of chemical phenomena and to deal with them at the applied level.
- The ability to understand the various aspects of chemical production and its impact on the society.
- The creativity to develop new practical solutions to chemical production-related problems, with particular emphasis on sustainable development and economic benefits.
- The open-mind ed attitude necessary to collaborate with scientists of culturally-related disciplines.
Applicants to the Bachelor's degree programme in Industrial Chemistry must hold an upper secondary-school diploma or equivalent foreign qualification pursuant to Ministerial Decree no. 270 of 22 October 2004.
Other requirements include basic knowledge of mathematics and chemistry, as well as the ability to make simple logical deductions according to levels of competence not higher than those achieved through upper secondary-school education.
Admission to the degree programme in Industrial Chemistry is capped locally in order to meet high-quality teaching standards relative to available resources. There are 90 places available for the first year of the programme.
You may sit for the entrance test (TOLC -Test On Line CISIA) at the University of Milan or any other member university of CISIA (Consortium of Inter-University Integrated Access Systems). Register to the TOLC test on the CISIA website (www.cisiaonline.it).
The test required for admission to the degree programme in Industrial Chemistry is TOLC-S, consisting of the following sections: basic mathematics (20 questions - 50 minutes), reasoning and problems (10 questions - 20 minutes), reading comprehension (10 questions - 20 minutes), basic sciences (chemistry, physics and geology - 10 questions - 20 minutes).
Each question has 5 answer options, of which only one is correct.
Score: +1 for a correct answer, -0.25 for a wrong answer, 0 for a no answer.
For more information on test structure and topics, visit:
The TOLC test includes an additional English section, consisting of 30 questions to be answered in 15 minutes. The score in this section does not affect the merit ranking, nor does it replace the for-credit assessment of English language proficiency required by the degree programme. However, it is a student self-assessment.
Students who have taken the TOLC-S test and intend to access the Bachelor's degree programme in Industrial Chemistry of the University of Milan must ALSO enrol in the selection process to be included in the merit ranking based on the test score. Winners may enrol by the deadlines set out in the call for applications.
The selection is divided into several time windows beginning in spring and ending in early September.

Admission of transfer and graduate students
Transfer students from a degree programme of the University of Milan, or another university, and graduate students will be waived from the test only if they meet the requirements for admission to years subsequent to the first, i.e. they have earned at least 30 credits for first-year exams, of which 9 available as transfer credits for the Fundamentals of Calculus exam.
To this end, they will have to submit a specific request for prior assessment of their academic career using the online service stated in the call for applications.
These candidates must provide a full transcript of records (listing exams, subject areas, credits, grades) and attach the course syllabi. For more details, please refer to the call for applications.
The case will be reviewed by the degree programme's Transfer Board. Any applicants who cannot be admitted to years following the first will have to take the test and rank high enough to be admitted to the programme.
Assessment requests with course syllabi attached must be submitted no later than 10 June 2021.
The outcome will be notified via e-mail by 15 July 2021.
Students admitted to years subsequent to the first may enrol in compliance with the deadlines and procedures specified in the call for applications.
Students admitted to the first year must take the test and register for the call.
Similarly, in order to speed up the procedure, all requests for exam equivalence and/or transfer credits must attach the course syllabi.
Additional learning requirements (OFA) and remedial activities
First-year students who have not achieved at least 10 points in the basic mathematics module will have to fulfil additional learning requirements (OFA).
Students with additional learning requirements will have to carry out remedial activities organised by the University in the period October-December, and then take a test to prove they have filled their gaps. Otherwise, they may not sit any first-year exams before passing the Fundamentals of Calculus exam, with the exclusion of the 3 credits for English language proficiency.
