Admission requirements

Candidates must hold a first-level degree (three-year) in the classes L-13 (Biological Sciences) or L-2 (Biotechnology), or another first-level degree obtained in Italy or abroad, that can be considered equivalent according to the current legislation. In this latter case, the candidates’ previous career must include at least 40 credits in the following sectors: BIO / 6 (Comparative Anatomy and Cytology), BIO / 09 (Physiology), BIO / 10 (Biochemistry) , BIO / 11 (Molecular Biology), BIO / 12 (Clinical Biochemistry and Clinical Molecular Biology), BIO / 13 (Applied Biology), BIO / 14 (Pharmacology), BIO / 16 (Human Anatomy), BIO / 18 (Genetics) , BIO / 19 (Microbiology), MED / 03 (Medical genetics), MED / 04 (General Pathology), MED / 06 (Medical Oncology), MED / 07 (Microbiology and Clinical Microbiology). Candidates must have acquired the first-level title by December 31, 2021 to access the course. Candidates satisfying the above requirements shall have to take an interview with a committee appointed by the Degree Program Board, aimed at verifying their preparation in the areas of physiology, pharmacology, molecular and cellular biology and biochemistry (for a list of the main topics for the interview, see the pdf file on this page). The interviews will be held during the month of September 2021; the schedule for the interviews will be published on the Course web page. A negative outcome of the interview will preclude access to the Course for the current year. Candidates must also possess adequate knowledge of the English language, as documented by: - an internationally recognized certification for a level corresponding at least to B2 level in the common European Reference Framework for Language Proficiency. This certification should be obtained within the three previous years (in case the certification has been obtained within the previous five years the interview will be held in English to verify the fluency in English); or - an academic degree (Bachelor's Degree, Master's Degree) corresponding to a course taught entirely in English. Candidates who fail to satisfy either criterion shall have to attend the Scientific English course that will be offered during the second half of September 2021, and to pass the relative exam.

Non-EU students: the access procedure consists of two steps:

  • all candidates from extra EU countries shall pre-apply by sending an email to foreign.students.bms@uninsubria.it (by May 31st 2021), accompanied by a transcript of records of the first-level Degree Course, a certification of proficiency in the English language (at least B2 level), a photocopy of the passport, the CV and a letter of motivation. Candidates who are considered potentially suitable based on the submitted documents will be asked to take a Skype interview with a committee appointed by the Degree Program Board, aimed at verifying their preparation in the areas of physiology, pharmacology, molecular and cellular biology and biochemistry. A negative outcome of the interview will preclude access to the Course for the current year.
  • Only candidates considered eligible for admission shall start the pre-enrolment procedure through the Universitaly website within the deadline annually published on the website www.uninsubria.eu/programs/degree-programs/enrollment-procedures/pre-enrolment
    The admission to the University program will be notified to Italian Consulates Emabassies through the Universitaly System in order to issue the Visa.
