The competitive entrance examination is open to Italian citizens and EU citizens wherever they are residing, non-EU citizens legally resident in Italy referred to in art. 26 of Law No. 189/2002 and non-EU citizens resident abroad who have a high school diploma equivalent to at least 12 years of education, recognized by the Ministerial Provisions dated 16th June 2020, which can be consulted on the following website: http://www.studiare-in-italia.it/studentistranieri
All students are required to have English language proficiency. For students who are not native English speakers, passing the entrance exam (IMAT) in English is considered equivalent to level B2 of the Common European Framework of Languages (corresponding to a score of 5.5 in IELTS or a grade C in Cambridge First).
For students who are not native speakers of Italian, Italian language proficiency is not required for the entry to the first year of the course. But as there is an interaction in Italian with patients starting from the second year of the course and in subsequent years during ward activities, students who are not native Italian speakers will be required to follow the Italian language courses offered by the university.
The students are also required to have scientific knowledge necessary for attending the first year of the course.
