Transfer to Medicine

The students enrolled in a degree course in medicine can transfer to our university without taking any admissions test. The possibility to transfer depends on the number of places available for the year of study requested.

The students enrolled in a degree course in medicine who wish to transfer to our university do not have to take any admissions test (as per the Council of State, Plenary Meeting, 1/2015).

The possibility to transfer depends primarily on the number of places available for the year of study requested. As the Ministry of Education allows us to matriculate a specific, preset number of students, we can consider transfer applications only when this maximum number has not been reached or in the event a student drops out, making a place available.

Further info about 2017/18 transfer applications will be available soon.

Applications assessment

Further info about 2017/18 deadlines for transfer applications will be available soon. 

Applicants will be selected based on their academic records and on whether the courses and exams taken at their current university are in line with the study programme of Humanitas University.

Selected applicants will be subsequently contacted for an interview with the President of the Medical School.

Italian students will have to take an English language assessment test which will be conducted by means of an interview.

Non-Italian students must be able to speak Italian from the beginning of the third year when the professionalizing activities begin; a language assessment test will be conducted by means of an interview.

Transfer students wishing to enter in a course year that requires previous clinical training (e.g., clinical examinations, history-taking) will be evaluated on those competences by a commission.

In the event transfer is granted, the student will be informed of any outstanding credits to be fulfilled with respect to the study programme of the course year he/ she has been admitted to.

 

 

If the transfer is not granted

Should transfer not be granted, it is possible to apply for the admissions test so as to enrol as a first-year student. It will then be possible to request validation of exam credits obtained from current/ other university programmes.

This validation does not necessarily imply that the student can enrol in years other than the first year as this depends on the number of places available for that or any requested year.

Partial validation of credits obtained from an integrated course permits the student to avoid taking an exam on that part of the study programme but does not allow the student to gain entrance to subsequent years of the degree course or to take exams that are scheduled for subsequent years.
