The admission process
As places fill up gradually we recommend students to submit their application as early as possible. We also recommend students in need of a visa for study purposes to apply within the first or second round of selection, considering that obtaining a visa for Italy is normally a time consuming process and visas are normally released by the competent Italian Authority during the summer.
Admission to the program depends on a rigorous selection process based on the following factors:
