For the Bachelor’s Degree Courses in:

•           Arts, Media, Cultural Events

•           Tourism, Management and Culture

•           Interpreting and Communication

the test is not selective, but aimed exclusively at assessing personal skills. Only if the maximum number of places available has been reached will a ranking be drawn up on the basis of the results of the test aimed at assigning the remaining places.

Based on the results of the test, where applicable, Additional Learning Requirements (OFA) may be assigned in specific subjects.

***

For the Bachelor’s Degree Courses in:

•           Fashion and Creative Industries

•           Communication, Media and Advertising

•           Corporate Communication and Public Relations

access is selective and is based on a ranking drawn up on the basis of scholastic merit and the results of the test. In particular, the position in the ranking (only for candidates already in possession of their school-leaving diploma or attending the fifth year of high school) is determined as follows:

•           50% - test results;

•           40% - school curriculum (average marks in third and fourth years);

•           10% - level of knowledge of English as assessed during the admissions test.

Access procedures based on ranking scores depend on the session in which the test was carried out. In particular:

•           for the 1st and 2nd sessions only candidates with a score of no less than 70 % of the maximum score will be admitted;

•           for the 4th and final session all candidates will be admitted based on the ranking with the score obtained until all available places have been filled. Candidates with a score of less than 70% of the maximum score who may be included in the ranking may be admitted with the assignment of OFAs in specific subjects.

•           for the 3rd session, depending on the number of places still available for each specific degree course, the criteria applied to the 2nd session may be applied, or those for the 4th session may be applied in advance. The criteria adopted for the 3rd session will be communicated 5 days prior to the date of the test.

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 2021/22 by submitting a new application for admission through the Online services, without having to pay a further test participation fee.

The participation fee will not be refunded under any circumstances.

* Places for the Bachelor's degree course in Fashion and Creative Industries are currently being exhausted: it is not planned at the moment to open the fourth admission test session, scheduled for July 2021, to candidates who have already graduated and/or are attending the last year of secondary school. If, in the case of renunciation of enrolment by admitted candidates, places become available, timely notice will be given in this section and on the Home page of the University portal. The admission session scheduled for July will therefore be open only 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.
