How to start your career as a student at IULM: all information and resources to register on the Bachelor of Science in Business Communication and Public Relations
The number of places available is about to be exhausted: there are currently no plans to open the fourth admission test session, scheduled for July 2021, to candidates who have already graduated and/or are in their last year of upper secondary school.
The admission test session scheduled for the month of July will therefore only be open to candidates attending the penultimate year of upper secondary school, who will conclude their studies by obtaining a diploma in the 2021/2022 school year.
If, in the event that admitted candidates decide not to enrol, a sufficient number of places become available to allow for a further test session, timely notification will be given as of 1 July 2021.

A selective test, aimed at verifying the individual's skills, is planned for admission to the degree programme in Business Communication and Public Relations. The test is open to candidates with a secondary school diploma and to students attending the fourth and fifth years of secondary school. Fourth year students who sit the admission tests can maintain the score obtained and access a dedicated enrollment window (November 2020) to register with priority for the Academic Year 2021/22.
The test, with multiple-choice questions, will last 90 minutes and aims to verify the knowledge of English, geography, history, economics and mathematics, and general culture. On completion of the test, the candidate will complete a cognitive questionnaire. All tests are computer- or paper-based.
For the Corporate Communication and Public Relations programme (delivered in English) the test is selective and provides access through a ranking defined on the basis of academic merit and the results obtained in the test
Candidates must have a English level B2 (according to the standard of the Common European Framework) to access the test:
- candidates with an international language certificate (original documents to be produced) obtained no more than three years previously will have direct access to the test.
- candidates who do not have such a language certificate (or who do not possess valid certification) will take a language assessment test. If considered having an English language level equal to or greater than B2), they may take the admission test. Candidates who do not pass the language test will have access to the admission test to the degree course in Business Communication and Public Relations (delivered in Italian).
Candidates who have been offered a place on the programme will be able to enrol on the pre-established dates. Registration is done through the Online Services. Registration is confirmed after payment of the first instalment of the registration fee.
Candidates who do not confirm their registration by the set deadline may apply to be included in the ranking of the next session, subject to availability of places.
For the Degree programme Business Communication and Public Relations , both successful candidates who do not confirm their registration within the given deadline and other candidates not considered eligible for admission may participate in the successive Admissions session (subject to availability of places) according to the following procedures
- confirm their request to repeat the test;
- request to be included in the ranking of the following session with the score obtained in the previous test.
In either case, the candidate will have to re-apply for the test via the Online Services.
For admission to the Bachelor of Science in Business Communication and Public Relations programme, all candidates must have the skills acquired through their high school studies.Although no specific knowledge is required, adequate written and verbal expression is a necessity.
For the programme delivered in English, candidates must have a preparation in English equivalent to a CEFR level B2.
For non-native Italian-speaking candidates, their Italian language levels will be verified and for candidates whose level is less that level B2, the study programme will include the Italian language studies to bring the level of Italian language up to the required level.
