Admittance to the Degree Course in Medicine and Surgery is subject to selection through the University’s Admissions Test.

130 places totally available: 80 places for European students and 50 places for non European students.

Therefore, two separate Admissions Tests are foreseen for European students and non European students.

Please verify your elibility as an EU or non-EU student by checking the Admissions Requirements listed below. Required school qualifications are summarized into the Education Requirements section.

 

 

Admissions Requirements – Eligibility

You qualify as a non-European student if:

  • you have a non-EU citizenship AND
  • have NO additional Italian citizenship AND
  • you do not live in Italy.

You qualify as a European student if you:

  • have a EU citizenship or a citizenship of Norway, Iceland, Liechtenstein, Switzerland, Republic of San Marino OR

  • live in Italy from at least one year (even if you hold a non-EU citizenship) OR
  • hold a diploma from Italian schools abroad or foreign or international schools listed here (even if you hold a non-EU citizenship).

Admissions Requirements – Education Requirements

In order to apply for the medical admissions test, candidates must satisfy one of the following requirements:

  • being enrolled in the last year of a secondary school to obtain a secondary school certificate in the current school year;
  • already being in possession of a secondary school certificate.

A Diploma is considered valid if obtained after at least 12 years of education, accompanied by the Declaration of Value issued by the Italian diplomatic authorities. The Declaration of Value will not be requested at the time of the application for the admissions test; it will be requested for the finalization of the enrollment procedure.

In the event that the local school system provides for 11 or 10 years of schooling, the title is valid when integrated with 1 or 2 years of university, having passed all the required exams for those academic years.

For the validation of foreign qualifications Humanitas University will follow Ministry guidelines (nota of March 24 2014, prot. n. 7802) available at this link.

Students who will receive their diplomas after the admissions test can apply for the test, but successful enrollment is conditional to the fulfillment of the above admissions requirements.

 

For candidates holding UK, US and Greek high school diplomas
