Enrolment procedures and deadlines

The degree course in Political Science and International Relations has no entry test.

Access requirements

Admission to the degree course in Political Science and International Relations requires a five-year secondary-school diploma or another recognised foreign qualification.

Admission procedures

The student's initial preparation is assessed by taking into account the results achieved during their upper secondary school studies. Anyone who has obtained a diploma with a score of at least 70/100 (or 42/60) is considered suitable, and thus sufficiently prepared to successfully attend the degree course.
Those with a lower score must take a test aimed at verifying their starting knowledge.
In the event that the test reveals deficiencies in the preparation required for admission to the degree course, and therefore the need for additional training obligations (OFAs) emerges, the student is directed, in order to fulfil these obligations, to supplementary activities and tutoring aimed at filling the gaps revealed by the test. These activities must be undertaken in the first year of the course.
The dates of the test, how it will be conducted and other information can be found on the ‘Non-selective test’ page
