selections and admissions


The Specialisation School has 25 available seats for each year of the programme.


The Specialisation School website publishes the “bando di concorso” (Competition Notice) every year.

Here, students can find the deadline for application submissions, and information regarding the required documentation and the details on how to carry out the initial oral examination. The purpose of the oral exam is to ascertain the applicant's basic knowledge of the Specialisation School's disciplines.


A designated Specialisation School committee will determine the criteria with which students will be selected, and the score amount to be awarded to the CV and initial oral exam; these criteria will be made public well before the evaluation.

The evaluation procedure is in two phases: the first concerns the evaluation of each candidate’s qualifications; the second presents the evaluation of the tests that are established by the Competition Notice itself.


Admission takes place based on the final ranking drawn up by the committee, until all available seats are filled; in case of equal scoring, the younger candidate will be chosen.
