Admission to UniME

All international students may enrol in one of the 1st and 2nd cycle programmes of the Italian University System. To be eligible for enrolment in the Italian University system, (Bachelor’s level) students must be at least 17 years old and have completed 12 years of schooling.

At UniME students are allowed to submit applications for two different programmes. Please choose the programmes according to your previous studies and review the admission requirements before submitting your application.

The application call for the A. Y. 2023/2024 will open on February 1, 2023.  Application deadline: June 1, 2023.
 
In the following sections are listed the procedures to apply for a pre-evaluation prior to the enrolment in the Degree programmes taught in English and Italian.
 

For the Degree programmes taught in English, you must first send your application for a pre-evaluation on the UniME Applicant Portal. Only if your application is positively evaluated, you will receive a pre-acceptance letter with all the instructions to register at the Universitaly portal and go forward with the visa procedure.

Students are required to upload an International English Language Certificate (B1 / B2 level as prescribed in the entry requirements of each degree programme) issued by a recognized Institution in the language section of the application . There will be no more language interviews

The reason for this is twofold: to select qualified students who can successfully function in their selected degree programmes; and to ensure that the Italian Consular Authorities are positively impressed by students applying to our university.  Due to the large increase in study visa applications, they tend to consider students with an International English Language Certificate in a more positive light.  

Students can apply without an International English Language Certificate, but their application might be considered incomplete. In this case, the applicants will have 45 days to provide the required certificate. Only for the Single Cycle Degree Course in Medicine and Surgery, the International English Language Certificate is optional, as the IMAT exam evaluates a B2 level.
