Candidates with Italian qualification who already possess the curricular requirements, but also students who are completing coursework in order to acquire them (or in any case working towards acquiring such requirements), are admitted to a written test (see How to apply) aimed at verifying the adequacy of candidates' personal preparation.
Candidates who pass the test are then admitted to an interview on their motivations for the "Area and global studies for international cooperation" programme. The interview is also aimed at assessing knowledge of English and of the second language, as well as at verifying other formal admission requirements.
If the candidate for registration is in possession of an Italian Master's Degree, the calculation of the curricular requirements is conducted on the credits earned during the entire university career.
Candidates with foreign qualification can register only according to the procedures for international students established by the University. Applicants having the above-mentioned curricular requirements are admitted to an interview – in English – aimed at verifying their personal knowledge of English and second language, and at discussing their general knowledge on the main themes of the course program and previous experience.
If the candidate is not in possession of the curricular requirements, the Faculty Board may eventually allow her/him to enroll in specific courses of the Master's Degree.
