Foreign qualification


The application for a Laurea Magistrale Programme (equivalent to a MSc degree) requires only a few steps. You can apply once per semester for up to two Master of Science programmes at the same time (1st and 2nd choice); if you are admitted to both courses you will be asked to accept the one you prefer.

DESIGN and ARCHITECTURE programmes accept candidatures for the 1st semester only.

Applicants of Design will have their second choice evaluated only if not admitted to their first choice. Therefore, please select your first choice carefully.

Before starting your application, please verify that your GPA fulfils our minimum GPA requirements and whether your university qualification is eligible to apply for our Master of Science programmes by checking the Country-specific requirements at this page.

You need to register online in order to obtain the credentials (personal code and password) to access the online application form.

Registration Guidelines (pdf)

Please enter your surname(s) and name(s) in the box exactly as they are stated on official documents, such as your passport and birth certificate.

Each user can only have one personal code. If you have already applied in the past you should make sure that you start a new application using the same personal code you were assigned upon your registration. We strongly recommend applicants avoid the creation of different personal codes when applying more than once. The International Admissions Office will make sure that no user completes more than one application per year using different personal codes. Such applications will be invalidated, even in case of admission.

Forgot your password? Please enter the Online Services > Credentials Recovery (you can switch the language to English language by clicking on the button on the top right side of the webpage). Write your personal code and the e-mail address you used to register to the online services; eventually you will receive an e-mail that will allow you to choose a new password.

Forgot your personal code? You can find it in your registration receipt or in the confirmation e-mail that you received at the end of your registration to the Online Services. If you still cannot find it, please follow the directions available here: Online Services > Credentials Recovery (you will have to fill out a form and send it to the relevant office together with a copy of your identity document).

The applicants need to ensure the card balance covers the application fee cost and any other charges required from the bank/card issuer.

In case the applicant does not have a card, he/she may ask a friend to complete the payment on his/her behalf.
