Before proceeding with the self certification of admission requirements, remember to arrange it in electronic format:

  • auto-certification of the degree with signed exams (in which the following is indicated: University where degree was carried out, classes and degree programme, degree data and marks, exams taken with the relative scientific-disciplinary sector and weighted credits). Check whether the auto-certification, completed with all the above information, can be printed from the personal area of the provincial University’s website; alternatively, use the model of auto-certification present on this page;
  • possible linguistic certification or useful documentation to certify belonging to one of the provided cases of exemption
  • CV and Cover Letter for verification of your personal preparation

Students and particular cases

If you participate in the evaluation as a student, during the completion of the self certification you must substitute the degree grade with the weighted average of the exams you have taken, and the degree self certification with the self certification of enrolment onto exams.

If you are a student on a degree programme of the Old Order (before D.M. 509/99), you must fill in the self certification of requirements online, skipping over the part dedicated to inserting your curriculum requirements.

If you have achieved a qualification abroad you must not no the self-certification online, instead you must verify the possession of curricular requirements and personal preparation by accessing the specific online procedure of evaluation.

Evaluation Outcome: possible cases

The result of the evaluation will be published on the website: in cases of success you may proceed directly to enrolment.

Access will not be permitted if:

  • you are not in possession of personal preparation, you must fill in the self-certification online again to participate in a new evaluation session;
  • the inserted curricula requirements do not total the amount of credits required, you must collect them by taking part in single courses (Bachelor’s Degree level) at this or another University. Once you have obtained them, you may proceed with enrolment without accessing a new online application for self-certification of admission requirements;
  • the results lack either curricula requirements or personal preparation, you may proceed with enrolment only after having obtained the requirements by undertaking the single courses and verifying personal preparation with success by participating in a new evaluation session;

If you do not have possession of certificated understanding of English language at B2 level, nevertheless you can proceed with enrolment. You will be able to insert possible useful documentation to show linguistic understanding during filling in the online application for enrolment.

Verification test for personal preparation


The verification for personal preparation will take place both for graduates and for students about to graduate, in classroom 5 of the San Paolo Palace in the Treviso Campus on the following dates:

  • Tuesday 20th June at 9am
  • Monday 11th September at 2.30pm
  • Monday 20th November at 2.30pm

Contents and method of completion

The test consists of an interview aiming to evaluate both the general understanding of the student on topics of economics, finance and politics (as well as subjects in light of the degree programme chosen), and why the student chose to enrol on the master’s degree programme selected.

Students must arrive at the test with the following:

  • A valid document of identification
  • Receipt for payment of enrolment fee

Students will have passed the test if their overall mark – an arithmetic average of the marks obtained from the interview (out of 110) and the degree grade – is equal or greater than 88/110.
In the case of students about to graduate, the final grade will only be calculated  at the moment of enrolment, on the basis of the grade achieved.
