Prerequisites for admission to Bachelor's Degree Courses
How to enrol in a IULM Bachelor's degree course if you have a foreign qualification: entry and language requirements
Enrolling in Bachelor's degree courses is a simple procedure: our team will support you throughout all the stages involved in becoming a IULM student.
You can enrol in a Bachelor's degree course if you possess:
● a high school diploma obtained after 12 years of schooling and if you have passed the academic aptitude test for university entrance (if required in your country of origin)
● an adequate level of proficiency in Italian or English

If you are a student with non-EU citizenship residing outside Italy and you are interested in one of the courses offered in Italian, you will have to provide proof of your language proficiency by means of an official certificate (CILS, CELI, PLIDA) at level B2 of the Common European Framework of Reference or by passing an online language assessment test organised by IULM at the beginning of September.
IULM University also offers the opportunity to attend an intensive Italian language improvement course organised at the beginning of September.
If you are a student with non-EU citizenship residing outside Italy and you are interested in the degree course in Corporate Communication and Public Relations held in English, you will have to provide proof of your language proficiency by means of an official certificate with a score equal to or higher than level B2 of the Common European Framework of Reference, e.g. IELTS (5.5); Cambridge FCE or CAE and Linguaskill (160); TOEFL IBT (72). In the absence of one of the accepted certificates, you may take an English language proficiency test and obtain a score equal to or higher than level B2 of the Common European Framework of Reference.
Our team will carefully evaluate all the documentation submitted and, after checking that the admission requirements have been met, you will be given confirmation of your eligibility and be able to take the admission test for your chosen degree course.
