Single Courses

Politecnico di Milano offers students the opportunity to attend single courses, during one semester or one academic year, choosing a maximum of 32 ECTS credits from both Laurea (equivalent to Bachelor of Science) and Laurea Magistrale (equivalent to Master of Science) Courses, within the degree course programmes. The choice of courses will depend on the semester of enrolment. Enrolment on single courses entitles to attend lessons, sit the examinations and obtain transcripts of passed and attended exams.

Please note that attending a single course does not give admission to the academic degree programme it belongs to. Non-EU students who are enrolled in single courses and wish to apply to a degree programme with similar subjects are considered as EU students residing in Italy: they will have to meet the application deadlines set for those students, and they doesn’t ask a new visa to enrol in the degree programme.

In order to be eligible for admission, students must have a final Diploma of Secondary studies (at least 12 years).

Admission to the selected courses will depend on the available places for that specific course.

For information on the course availability and enrolment details, students must refer to the office in charge for the selected campus:
