In order to be admitted to the Degree Course it is necessary to be in possession of an upper secondary school diploma or other qualification obtained abroad and recognised as suitable in accordance with the legislation in force. Students are required to possess the basic knowledge normally acquired in High Schools (Italian Licei and Istituti di Istruzione Secondaria Superiore). The course requires the ability to understand texts and to reconstruct the concepts and arguments contained therein in written form (Course Regulations, Art. 2, paragraphs 1, 2).
In order to ascertain their comprehension, expression and argumentation skills, enrolled students are subjected to a written admission test, in accordance with the Course Regulations. Students with significant deficiencies will be required to follow a preparatory support course, the procedures for which are established annually by the Course Council, which ends with a written exercise aimed at verifying the recovery of deficiencies.
