The Bachelor's degree programme strives for a series of specific objectives. We describe these below, in their three-year course sequence.
Limited enrolment with admission test
For further information on the number of places and the date of the admission test, please visit the website https://accessoprogrammato.miur.it/
Students are expected to attain level B1 proficiency in English. Proficiency may be certified at the time of matriculation by submitting a certificate of level B1 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.
UNIMI's Bachelor's Degree programme in Occupational Therapy, established in 2001, launched an international exchange programme (within the Erasmus framework) with the University of Burgos, Spain, beginning in the 2008/2009 academic year. Since then, about a dozen Spanish students have taken Year III coursework on the Milan campus, with stays ranging from six to nine months. These students have attended lessons and completed practicums.
The European Community's Erasmus+ programme was renewed for the 2014-2020 period, providing students study-abroad and traineeship/internship opportunities for 3-12 months thanks to bilateral agreements between the degree programmes. The Bachelor's degree programme also provides students, on an individual basis, contacts with short-term (from a few weeks to a few months) international-university experiences, in the U.S. in particular. As with other degree programmes where students have studied abroad, we have found students to be very happy with their experience. In many cases they have found inspiration for their thesis, and contacts for work opportunities after graduation.
The Erasmus experience and international exchange are not just a university experience, but an opportunity to learn from, and live with, persons of a different culture and language. It's about more than learning a different language: it's a chance for the student to begin to take on responsibilities, and to begin to feel a part of a professional community that includes students from different countries.
The tuition fees for students enrolled in Bachelor's, Master's and single-cycle degree programmes are divided into two instalments with different calculation methods and payment schedules:
- The amount of the first instalment is the same for all students
- The amount of the second instalment varies according to the ISEE University value, the degree programme and the student status (on track / off track for one year or off track for more than a year)
- An additional fee is due for online programmes
The University also offers:
- Concessions for students meeting high merit requirements
- Diversified tuition fees according to the student's home country for international students with assets/income abroad
- Concessions for international students with refugee status
Scholarships and benefits
The University provides a range of financial benefits to students meeting special requirements (merit, financial or personal conditions, international students).
