Master and Postgraduate Degrees


National and international students may apply for the cycle of studies leading to a master or postgraduate degree if:

  • They hold a Bachelor’s degree or legal equivalent;
  • They hold a foreign academic degree awarded after completing the first-cycle of studies structured  by a signatory State in accordance with the principles of the Bologna process;
  • They hold a foreign university degree that is recognised as meeting the requirements of a Bachelor’s degree by the School's Scientific or Technical-Scientific Board;
  • They have an academic, scientific or career curriculum that is recognised as attesting to their ability to follow the study plan defined by the School’s Scientific or Technical-Scientific Board. Candidates will be required to request that their curriculum be recognised when applying.

Candidates must request recognition of their ability to attend a master or postgraduate degree course by the School's Scientific or Technical-Scientific Board in their application form. Recognition will only be valid for acceptance to study cycles that lead to a master or postgraduate degree and do not confer equivalence to a Bachelor’s degree, or recognition for any other purposes.

Specific entry requirements  for certain courses may be stipulated in the notices of the opening of each course. Candidates who do not meet those requirements will not be considered for admission.
