Applicants to the degree programme in Physics must hold an upper secondary-school diploma or an equivalent qualification obtained abroad.
Admission to the programme is open, subject to a mandatory, non-selective assessment test before enrolment. The test is aimed at ascertaining the candidate's educational background, in terms of baseline knowledge and understanding of scientific disciplines, especially mathematics and elementary logic. You can find the syllabus for the basic mathematics section of the test at:
As a rule, candidates are required to sit for the TOLC (Test Online 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).
Admission of transfer or 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 admitted to years subsequent to the first.
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.
Requests for career assessment must be submitted by 10 June 2021.
Their outcome will be notified via e-mail by 15 July 2021.
Students admitted to the first year will be required to take the test.
The TOLC tests providing access to the degree programme in Physics are TOLC-S and TOLC-I.
Only after taking one of these tests, will you be able to enrol, WHATEVER THE RESULT:
- TOLC-S, divided into 4 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).
- TOLC-I, divided into 4 sections: mathematics (20 questions - 50 minutes), logic (10 questions - 20 minutes), science (10 questions - 20 minutes), verbal comprehension (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 no answer.
Each TOLC test includes an additional English section, consisting of 30 questions to be answered in 15 minutes. It does not replace the for-credit English proficiency assessment required by the degree programme, but it is useful as a self-assessment for the student.
Other equivalent tests may be accepted on a case-by-case basis, upon approval by the Academic Board.
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) for this subject during the first year of the programme.
Remedial activities and tests: Students with additional learning requirements will have to carry out remedial activities in the period October-December, and then take a test to prove they have filled their gaps. Otherwise, they may not take any second-year exams before passing the Mechanics exam (https://fisica.cdl.unimi.it/it/studiare/le-matricole).
Test topics, registration procedures, dates, deadlines and other information are described in the call for applications: https://fisica.cdl.unimi.it/it/iscriversi
Attendance is compulsory and will be monitored in each class for laboratory courses.

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).
