In order to apply to the Master Degree programme in Medicine and Surgery (taught in English), an Italian secondary school diploma or equivalent foreign degree is required.
The number of students admitted to the first year of the course is defined by law.
It requires either the possession, or the acquisition, of prerequisite education.
Therefore, it is mandatory to pass an international competitive exam (the IMAT, International Medical Admission Test), whose specifics are defined by the Italian Ministry of Education, University, and Research (MIUR).
The test takes place simultaneously in all Italian state universities that provide a degree course in Medicine and Surgery taught in English, and in testing sites around the world.
Students admitted to the degree in Medicine and Surgery must demonstrate knowledge of English at level B2 or higher.
The National Access Program to Medicine and Surgery, with a minimum threshold specified in the Ministerial Decree published annually, also includes the verification of the minimum admissibility requirements for the subjects indicated in the ministerial notice.
Students admitted to the course of study, with test values in Physics & Mathematics lower than 25% of the highest score, will have to recover the gaps that are considered training debt (OFA), as indicated in the Degree Course Regulations.
The deadline for enrollment in the first year of the degree is set by annual national study regulations.
