Application Procedures to Laurea Magistrale Programmes

The "Laurea Magistrale" (equivalent to Master of Science) is obtained after two years of postgraduate studies and aims to provide rigorous, advanced training in specific sectors. Applicants who already have a “Laurea” (equivalent to Bachelor of Science) in a different field or have attended a vocational school, as well as those who obtained an undergraduate qualification at a University of Applied Science (or any other university with a similar study profile), cannot apply directly for a “Laurea Magistrale” (equivalent to Master of Science), but they must first obtain the necessary credits. 

Laurea Magistrale programmes under the School of Design  and under the School of Architecture accept students only in the first semester of the academic year (September intake).


NEW! To foster integration, work at Italian companies and to make life outside the campus even more enjoyable, starting from the academic year 2021/22, all students will have to prove an Italian Language proficiency in order to graduate at Politecnico di Milano. This is NOT an entry requirement.

The options are as follows:

  • If you already have a certificate of Italian language level B1, you can upload it upon enrolment.
  • You can attend a FREE course of Italian language at Politecnico di Milano of any level and take here the exit test. The exit test is considered passed if the student proves to have kept or improved the starting level. It is not required to reach the B1 level

For the full list of certificates accepted by Politecnico di Milano, please check the Ministry of University pages Circolare MUR 2021-2022 ( (pg 11 e 12, Article 1.2, comma G)
