Admission test to Ph.D. Programs is divided in two stages: in the first stage the Examining Committee evaluates the qualifications for compliance with the criteria established by the Ph.D. Faculty Committee; in the second stage the candidates are interviewed by the Ph.D. Faculty Committee, in order to ascertain their preparation, skills and aptitude for scientific research and personal motivation. The interview also aims at verifying the applicant’s knowledge of the educational and academic areas specified for the Ph.D. and includes the applicant’s formal presentation of the research project(s) he/she proposes to conduct. (*For those foreign students who are not able to reach Milan for the interview, special on-line interviews will be set, by request).
-For Italian students a Laurea Quadriennale or Laurea Magistrale is required. These Italian titles are M.A. equivalents. B.A. equivalents will not constitute minimum requirements for admission. -Foreign students must hold an academic qualification that has been declared to be equivalent to an Italian Laurea Quadriennale or Laurea Magistrale (i.e. an M.A. equivalent; B.A. degrees do not constitute minimum requirements for admission). In case their degree has not yet been declared equivalent to an Italian Laurea Quadriennale or Laurea Magistrale, candidates may apply to the Faculty committee of the Ph.D. program of interest for a declaration of equivalent value. Applicants who expect to graduate within the date of the first meeting of the Examining Commitees (the meeting is finalized to the evaluation of qualifications) are eligible to apply for admission to the Graduate School.
