The three year undergraduate programme in International Science and European Institutions provides first-level interdisciplinary knowledge of economics, law, politics, sociology and history from both a European and international perspective. The course aims to provide students with specific competencies in both the trans-national and international aspects of contemporary society.
The overall aim of the degree is to develop the student's understanding of contemporary economic, political and social phenomena within both a European and international community framework.
With their interdisciplinary background, graduates in International Studies and European Institutions are well placed to employment in diverse fields: private and public companies involved in commercial and financial transnational relations, both within and outside the European Union; central and local administrations (particularly in their international relations office); governmental and non-governmental organizations; services, cultural heritage and tourism sectors.

Employment statistics (Almalaurea)
In light of its international focus, the Bachelor degree programme in International Sciences and European Institutions provides enrolled students with a wide range of options, in terms of foreign institutions where they may follow part of their studies and take exams, in the context of the Erasmus+ Programme. Erasmus+ funded scholarships may be available.
The Department of International, Legal, Historical and Political Studies (DILHPS) - which is responsible for the Bachelor degree -collaborates with several partner Universities in France, Spain, Eastern Europe (mainly the Czech Republic, Poland and Lithuania), as well as in Germany, Denmark, Belgium, Norway and the United Kingdom. Moreover, thanks to specific arrangements with some Turkish Universities, students will have the chance to experience life and study in a stimulating cross-cultural environment.
While staying in a partner University, students will be able to pursue their studies, in particular in the fields of International Relations, International and Comparative Law, Public and Private Law, History of International Relations and Politics.
The procedure for the recognition of exams taken abroad consists of two phases: a) before the student leaves, a 'Learning Agreement' will identify the courses that he is authorized to take abroad on the basis of the student's preferences and subject to the agreement of each Professor; b) upon the student's return, the University of Milan will recognize the exams included in the 'Transcript of Records' provided by the partner University and convert the grades received by the student.

More specifically, a basic knowledge in the area of language and communication, as well as logic and mathematics, is required.

 Candidates are likewise required to prove English language proficiency at a B2 level (or higher) under the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages (CEFR).

In order to safeguard educational quality standards in relation to available resources, pursuant to art. 2 of Law 264/1999, enrolment in the degree programme is capped to 400 students, plus a quota of 20 non-EU students residing abroad. Admission to the programme is subject to a mandatory online test delivered by CISIA (Interuniversity Consortium for Integrated Access Systems): TOLC-E. 

The candidate's educational background will be assessed through the admission test. Applicants must achieve the minimum scores set forth in the call for applications for the three areas of the TOLC-E test.

Students admitted with a lower score in one or more of these areas will have to fulfil additional learning requirements (OFA), by attending courses or workshops, including online, or reading supplementary study materials.
