Academic year 2018-2019: English language recommendations

All classroom activities at Humanitas Medical School are held in English. To fully understand and benefit from your degree course, a good level of English in all skills is required.  It is, therefore, strongly recommended that applicants to Humanitas Medical School can demonstrate an adequate level of English language competency: Common European Framework of Reference  (CEFR) B2.

The detailed programme for the preparation of the test, information about test procedures and support for candidates with disabilities will be reported in the Call for Applications.

IMAT is developed by the Admissions Testing Service, part of Cambridge English Language Assessment, a not-for-profit department of the University of Cambridge.

The test scores are assigned as follows:

  • 1,5 points for each correct answer
  • – 0,4 points for each incorrect answer
  • 0 points for each non-given answer.

Highest achievable score: 90 points. Minimum score: 20 points.

In case of a draw, the points scored by the candidates respectively in the logic and problem solving subjects, general culture, biology, chemistry, physics and mathematics respectively will prevail in descending order.
