If you are a non-EU student, please consider the following details too:

Admission Test

You will be invited to the admission test, which will be carried out on the application platform for the 2-year Master’s in Strategic Communication and in Hospitality and Tourism Management. In this case, the test will consist of a few general questions mainly concerning your interest for the chosen field of study and yourself as a prospective student of such a programme. To answer these questions, you will be required to record a few short videos (1,5-2 min).

We will then submit your answers to the courses coordinator who will evaluate them.

As for the admission tests for the other Italian taught 2- year Master’s degrees, these will take place via Skype, please make sure to check out the complete admission regulations to see the whole bibliography and sources you should refer to while preparing for your admission test.

If the outcome is positive, we will ask you to pay the first installment of the tuition fees in order to become a IULM University student within 30 days from the confirmation date.

Admission letter

Once you have completed the enrollment procedure, IULM University will prepare an official letter that you will need during the registration on Universitaly. Please note: "Under no circumstances does the advance acceptance on the part of universities replace the actual pre-enrolment to the course, which takes place only and exclusively through the issuance of visas by the diplomatic and consular representatives".

Application for pre-enrolment

Submit your pre-enrolment application through the Universitaly portal in a period usually between April and the end of July.

The details of the procedure and the updated deadlines are available on the website:

The payment of the first instalment carried out to confirm your enrolment will be refunded only and exclusively if you do not obtain a study visa from the consular representative.

Italian test

Should you be interested in attending an Italian taught Bachelor’s and shouldn’t you have an official certification of your Italian knowledge (B2 level), you will have to take an Italian test. Distance (online) tests are possible too. Although we strongly recommend you obtain an official certification such as CILS, CELI, PLIDA at a B2 or C1 level.

IULM University will provide all international students with a 2/3 weeks free-of-charge Italian language course organized in September, before the actual beginning of the academic year.
