Employment statistics (Almalaurea)

Admission into the Bachelor's degree programme in Public Sector and Healthcare Management is conditional upon earning a secondary-school diploma, or other equivalent foreign diploma. Students must also have a skill set and knowledge base allowing them to successfully follow the study programme. More specifically, a basic knowledge in the area of language and communication, as well as logic and mathematics, is required.  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 120 students, plus a quota of non-EU students residing abroad.    A spring selection session will be held for students in the last year of secondary school (30 places available) and for student workers with a high school diploma and with proven professional experience in a field consistent with the training courses of the degree programme (30 places available). A summer selection session will be held for the remaining 60 places for: students with a high school diploma (40 places) and workers (20 places), plus any remaining places not covered by the spring session. For the purposes of the merit ranking, the TOLC-E test result will weigh 75%. Candidates may sit for the test online on the portal of the Consortium of Interuniversity Integrated Access Systems (CISIA). The average grade in Italian, mathematics, history and English, as of the end of the second term of the fourth year of secondary school (spring session), or the final grade (summer session), will weigh 25%.  The test procedures will be set forth in the call for applications.

KNOWLEDGE ASSESSMENT

In order to meet admission requirements, candidates must achieve the minimum score in the TOLC-E test, as set out in the call for applications. Admitted students who fell short of the minimum score in the language-expression area and/or in logical and mathematical skills, as set out in the call for applications, will have to fulfil additional learning requirements (OFA) within the first year of the programme, according to the procedures established by the Faculty of Political, Economic and Social Sciences. Students who do not fulfil these requirements within the aforementioned deadline will have to enrol as students repeating the first year of the programme for the following academic year, and will not be able to take any exams for years following the first. The educational background of student workers will be assessed by a special board of instructors appointed by the Academic Board, based on the candidate's academic and professional career, according to the procedures specified in the call for applications. Any additional learning requirements identified by the board must be fulfilled within the first year of the programme through supplementary, curricular or laboratory activities. English language proficiency at a B1 level or higher under the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages (CEFR) is required for attending the programme.

In order to take the English for Management exam required by the study plan, students must be proficient in English at a B1 level. This proficiency level may be certified as follows:

- Through a language certificate, earned within three years prior to the date of submission, at a B1 level or higher (for the list of language certificates recognised by the University, please review: https://www.unimi.it/it/studiare/competenze-linguistiche/placement-test-e-corsi-di-inglese). The certificate may be uploaded upon enrolment or sent to the University Language Centre (SLAM) through the Informastudenti service;

- Through a Placement Test, which is delivered by the University Language Centre (SLAM) during year I only, from September to December. Students who fail the test will be required to take a SLAM course.

The Placement Test is mandatory for all students who fail to submit a valid certificate. Those who do not sit the Placement Test by December, or who fail to pass the end-of-course test within six attempts, must obtain a certificate by the programme year contemplated for their exam in English.

The three-year degree course in Public Management and Healthcare offers the opportunity to carry out study periods at European universities, where students who join the Erasmus+ Programme will be able to undertake a learning experience with the recognition of the activity abroad as part of their academic career. As part of the Erasmus+ Programme, exchange agreements are in place with partner institutions in Spain (University of Oviedo, University of Salamanca, University Jaume I de Castellón, Valencia, University of La Coruña), France (Université Catholique, Lille), Germany (Fachhochschule für öffentliche Verwaltung Nordrhein - Westfalen), Portugal (University of Coimbra), Croatia (University of Zagreb, University of Rijeka), Poland (University of Katowice, University of Gdansk, University of Lodz). The courses offered by international partners cover the main subjects and disciplines of Public Management and Healthcare. The student's choice of exams to be taken abroad is made before departure together with the Erasmus+ Programme Coordinator. Credits earned abroad are officially recognized on returning to Italy and then included in the individual study plan.

Attendance is strongly recommended. The degree programme is eligible for part-time enrolment, with remote support by tutors
