Admission requirements

Qualifications and knowledge required for admission
Admission to the degree programme is capped. Candidates to the degree programme in Linguistic and cultural mediation for business, law and community services must have a high-school diploma or an equivalent qualification obtained abroad. In order to successfully attend this degree programme, students must have a significant knowledge of the Italian language and culture and must have studied at least one foreign language at high school. They also need adequate competencies in high school subjects related to the degree programme, as well as basic logical and mathematical skills.
Non-Italian students and non-Italian mother tongue students holding a foreign qualification must demonstrate Italian proficiency at least at a B1 level under the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages (CEFR), paired with basic knowledge of the Italian culture.

Admission assessment
Candidates holding an Italian qualification who are applying for the curricula in Business, Tourism and Community services (as well as foreign students not applying for the Stranimedia curriculum) must take the TOLC-SU test to assess expressive linguistic skills and logical and mathematical skills. While taking the TOLC-SU test, candidates who want to study English must take a specific test to assess knowledge of the English language (B1 level CEFR). The outcome of this test will not be considered for the ranking. Should the student fail the test, he/she will not be allowed to access English courses. In order to meet the background knowledge requirements, candidates must achieve, in the admission test, the minimum passing score set out in the call for applications. Additional learning requirements (OFA) are assigned to students who do not achieve the minimum passing score in the above-mentioned test, and have to be fulfilled within the first year of the degree programme in order for students to be allowed to sit for exams.
Candidates are admitted in rank order, following the indications reported in the call for applications and until all places available are taken.

The Stranimedia curriculum is reserved for non-Italian mother tongue students holding a foreign qualification. To be admitted, candidates must take a test to assess their knowledge of the Italian language and culture, as well as knowledge of English if they choose it as language of study. Both tests will be held online (see the call for applications for further details).
Additional learning requirements (OFA) are assigned to students who do not achieve the minimum passing score in the Italian language and culture test, and have to be fulfilled by attending an Italian as a second language (L2) course, and by passing the final assessment. Further details are reported in the call for applications and on the website of the degree programme. Students who do not fulfil the OFA within the first year of the degree programme will not be allowed to sit for exams.
Should a student not meet the minimum requirements of the English test, he/she will not be able to choose English as curricular language.

Additional learning requirements (OFA) and remedial activities
For the curricula in Business, Tourism and Community services, OFA must be fulfilled through attendance of remedial courses specifically designed for the degree programme by the University. Instructions to attend these remedial courses will be available on the website of the degree programme. Assessment tests will be scheduled at the end of the courses.
As regards the Stranimedia curriculum, students must be proficient in Italian at a B1 level under the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages (CEFR). Candidates holding a foreign qualification will be assessed on Italian during the admission test. Additional learning requirements (OFA) are assigned to students who do not achieve the B1 level in Italian and have to be fulfilled by attending an Italian L2 language course, and by passing the final assessment. The course is organised by SLAM - University of Milan Language Centre.

Transfers and second degrees
All students who intend to apply for transfer must take the TOLC-SU test. The same requirements apply to students already holding a degree who intend to obtain a second degree.
