Online admissions tests: dates and updates

Students - 08 May 2020

Update 5 May: In spite of the continuing COVID-19 emergency the IULM University admissions tests will be going ahead in accordance with the previously announced schedules


Admissions tests for Bachelor’s Degrees:

With the continuing COVID-19 health emergency, the IULM University admissions tests which were originally scheduled to take place at the University on 22 and 23 May, will now have to be held online with a consequent partial change in dates, as set out below:

22 May 2020

Communication, Media and Advertising
Interpreting and Communication

23 May 2020

Corporate Communication and Public Relations

25 May 2020

Fashion and Creative Industries

26 May 2020

Corporate Communication and Public Relations (*)

28 May 2020

Arts, Media, Cultural Events
Tourism, Management and Culture

For organisational reasons, candidates with learning disorders or certified disabilities may be scheduled to take the tests on different dates, also in order to allow correct and effective compensatory measures to be adopted.

Closer to the test dates you will receive an email with the links, credentials and times to access the test (in any case you should be aware that your availability will be required throughout the day: a rapid yet essential check of personal details in the morning and the actual test in the afternoon).

The test can be accessed from a common browser, so it will not be necessary to install any software. For essential procedures regarding the checking of personal details by personnel from the Students Office, and also in order to guarantee the smooth running of the test, on the day of the test you will be asked to activate the webcam and microphone on your PC; for this reason technical staff from the University will be at your disposal for preliminary checks on your devices in the period prior to your test on days and at times to be announced.

Access to the test will naturally be reserved to applicants who have successfully completed payment by MAV of the €120 registration fee.

The Students Office is at your disposal for any further clarification.

(*) Applicants for the course in Corporate Communication and Public Relations who do not possess suitable language certification will take the English language assessment test online on 20 May 2020 (minimum level required: B2).

Registration for the admissions tests for the Bachelor’s Degree Courses is open until 14 May 2020.

At the moment applications are open only for the course in Television, Cinema and New Media. The number of places remaining for both courses will not be made known prior to 25 May.

The initially planned procedures for carrying out the tests have had to be adapted for online testing (e.g. written tests may be turned into oral tests or vice versa, also on the basis of the number of candidates); moreover, for some courses (e.g. where testing involves individual interviews) the testing may take place over several days (starting from the scheduled date) depending on the number of candidates.

Closer to the test dates, applicants will receive an email with detailed dates and times, and instructions about the remote testing procedures, including technical instructions regarding any software to be used.

A technical service will be set up for candidates to check connectivity and the multimedia devices to be used (webcam, microphone), so that the necessary checks can be carried out in the days leading up to the test.
