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, 2019 to access the Basic and Applied Biomedical Sciences curriculum, or by October 31, 2019 to access the Double Degree curriculum.
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 in Italian or English, according to each candidate’s preference, during the month of September 2019; 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;
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 2019, and to pass the relative exam.

Non-EU students: Candidates shall pre-apply by sending an email to foreign.students.bms@uninsubria.it  (by May 31st 2019), 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 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.
Candidates considered eligible for admission will receive an Admission Letter, that they shall submit to the Italian diplomatic missions in their countries of residence, together with the other requested documents, upon application for pre-enrollment to the Course and for a Students’ Visa. The time window for pre-enrollment is published annually on the website of the Italian Ministry of Education, University and Research (for the Academic Year 2019/20 pre-enrollment procedures are open from March 7th to July 24th, 2019).
