In order to be admitted to the degree course in Social Work, it is necessary to hold a five-year secondary school diploma or another recognised foreign qualification.
Basic knowledge normally acquired in upper secondary schools is required, with particular reference to: linguistic knowledge (ability to understand and interpret texts in Italian and to express oneself sufficiently correctly in Italian) and logical-argumentative skills.
The entrance knowledge test takes place at the beginning of each academic year with schedules indicated in the prospectus. In the event that the entry knowledge test reveals shortcomings in the preparation required for admission to the degree course, the student is directed to supplementary training and tutoring activities, aimed at filling the gaps revealed by the entry test, in order to fulfil the resulting additional training obligation within the first year of the course.
The purpose of the test, which is not binding for enrolment, is to check students' initial preparation, make them aware of the skills they possess and identify any gaps to be filled through participation in various support training activities organised by the Department and/or the degree course.
Further indications on how to test the knowledge required for access, as well as additional training obligations, will be set out in the Degree Course Regulations, in compliance with the University regulations.
