Applicants enrolled in an Italian school who attended their fourth year abroad may only enter their third-year report; attending the fourth year abroad for at least one semester (which must be duly certified by attaching appropriate documentation) will constitute an element of merit which will be taken into due consideration when drawing up the ranking.
Applicants enrolled in a foreign school (in Italy or abroad) will, if possible, enter their reports for the last two years; attending a foreign school will constitute an element of merit which will be taken into due consideration when drawing up the ranking.
Applicants in possession of a foreign qualification, or a qualification obtained from a foreign or international high school in Italy, must notify the University in advance (if possible prior to the closing date for enrolment in the test) by writing an e-mail to: [email protected] in order to verify the validity of the qualification for the purposes of admission to university courses, and at the same time to upload the documents to apply.iulm.it. For this purpose, applicants must send their transcript of records, their high school diploma (if applicable), and other relevant documentation.
Students in possession of a foreign qualification or attending a non-Italian school who fail to give prior notice in accordance with the above procedures will not be admitted to the test for that session.
Participation is subject to payment of a fee of €120, which will be deducted from the first instalment (on one occasion only for the course on which the student enrols) upon confirmation of enrolment.
It is possible to participate in more than one test for more than one degree course in the academic year 2021/22 by paying the €120 fee for each course.
Exceptions are the degree courses in Comunicazione d’impresa e relazioni pubbliche and Corporate Communication and Public Relations for which it is not possible to register for both tests in the same session (since they are the same course with one being the English language equivalent of the other).
Students who fail to pass the test in one session may apply for a subsequent session for the academic year 20221/23 by submitting a new application for admission, without having to pay a further test participation fee.
