Students with Italian degrees:
1) You must check your curricular requirements at this LINK, using a dedicated procedure. The procedure will automatically provide you detailed information about your specific application documents.
2) Once you have completed step 1, you will be contacted from our administrative offices. The possible outcomes are:

  • Your curricular requirements are ok, but you need to assess your English level. Therefore you should provide us an English certification (see section “Language prerequisites” below);
  • You need to verify your curricular requirements and assess your English level. Therefore your curricular requirements will be verified during an interview with the admission Committee and you should provide us an English certification (see section “Language prerequisites” below).

In both cases you will have to come to Cremona for an interview with the admission Committee.
