Admission requirements

Applicants should have a Bachelor's degree or equivalent; a strong interest and/or previous studies in political science or philosophy or related subjects; a sound knowledge of spoken and written English.
More specifically, eligible candidates must meet the following requirements:
1. Applicants who obtained their Bachelor's degrees from Italian Universities are eligible for admission if they hold a "laurea" degree belonging to any one of the "classi di laurea" (degree classes) listed below under the heading "Note 1".
Applicants who completed their undergraduate studies in foreign Universities are eligible for admission if they hold a Bachelor's degree in philosophy, political science or other broadly related subjects, provided that their Bachelor's degree may be regarded as equivalent to one of the Italian "laurea" degrees listed below at "Note 1".
2. Applications will be assessed by an Admission Committee that will decide on admission on the basis of an evaluation of the applicants' academic records. If the applicants academic records don't provide enough evidence of their background training and competences in the relevant disciplinary fields, applicants can be invited to an interview.
3. Applicants must be able to certify their knowledge of English either by providing documentation attesting that they have at least one year of university studies at institutions where English is the language of instruction, or by providing evidence, through appropriate certificates, of possessing language skills in English equivalent to level B2 in the Common European Framework of Reference.

PPPA acknowledges as valid also English language certificates released by the SLAM to candidates previously enrolled in Bachelor's or Master's programmes offered by the University of Milan.
The language skills of applicants who cannot certify their knowledge of English by providing proper documentation, will be assessed by the Admission Committee during the interview.
Applicants meeting the above requirements can be invited to an interview intended to further ascertain their level of competence in the relevant disciplinary fields and to provide indications on how to fill possible gaps in these fields. Interviews can be held both on campus or online.

University fees

For students enrolled on bachelor’s, master’s and single cycle degree programmes are divided into two instalments of different amounts and with different payment deadlines:

  • the first, corresponding to the minimum amount, is the same for all students 
  • the second - technically referred to as an ‘all-inclusive fee’-  that is variable.

Students can also be entitled for tuition fee reductions such as:

  • lowering for students who meet high merit requirements 
  • fixed amounts calculated on the basis of the student's citizenship group for those with income/property abroad
  • support for students who have political refugee status.
