INTERNATIONAL STUDIES AND EUROPEAN INSTITUTIONS (SIE)
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.
Graduates may hold professional roles in a variety of different organisations, such as:
- public and private organisations involved in international commercial or financial activities and in the internationalisation of both EU and non-European markets;
- public administration organisations responsible for international relations such as the diplomatic and consular services;
- European and international organisations (both governmental and NGOs) in the sectors of services and cultural heritage, tourism and communication.

Application and admission: Limited enrolment with admission test.
Access is subject to passing a test (TOLC-E, CISIA OnLine Test, www.cisiaonline.it ) which will give rise to a merit ranking.
Additional learning obligations (OFA)
Students who do not pass the entrance examination on basic general knowledge, comprehension, maths and logic, are assigned additional learning obligations (OFA, Obblighi formativi aggiuntivi) that they must fulfil in accordance with the provisions of the Programme Structure.
OFA: English language
Students must have level B2 proficiency in English. Proficiency may be certified at the time of matriculation by submitting a certificate of level B2 language proficiency or better, or by sitting the SLAM (University Language Centre) Placement test during the first year of studies only, between September and December.
Students who do not pass the test must follow the SLAM language courses and obtain appropriate certification within the year the plan of study calls for a language exam.
Highly recommended, not mandatory
For students enrolled on bachelor’s, master’s and single cycle degree programmes are divided into two instalments of different amounts and with different payment deadlines:
- the first, corresponding to the minimum amount, is the same for all students
- the second - technically referred to as an ‘all-inclusive fee’- that is variable.
Students can also be entitled for tuition fee reductions such as:
- lowering for students who meet high merit requirements
- fixed amounts calculated on the basis of the student's citizenship group for those with income/property abroad
- support for students who have political refugee status.
