If you wish to apply to the English-taught degree programme in Medicine and Surgery, an Italian secondary school diploma or equivalent foreign degree is required.
The number of places available for the first year of the course is defined by law.
Admission is subordinate to the possession, or acquisition, of preliminary knowledge. 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 universities that provide a degree programme in Medicine and Surgery taught in English, and in testing sites around the world.
Students admitted to the degree in Medicine and Surgery must also 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 degree programme whose scores in Physics & Biology are lower than 25% of the highest score are considered as students with a knowledge gap (“OFA”), and will thus have to undergo a supplement of study, as indicated in the Degree Programme Regulations.
The deadline for enrolling in the first year of the degree is decided annually by national regulations.
