Admission Requirements


Admission requirements

To be admitted to the RISE Master\'s programme, prospective students must possess a three-year degree or diploma from a University, or a similar academic qualification recognized as equivalent. Prospective students must also have completed specific curricular requirements and have had an adequate personal preparation, verified through procedures and criteria defined in the Regulations for the Master\'s programme.
In order to be considered for admission to the programme, prospective students must have passed at least 3 exams in the field of law and/or economics. This means that students with a technical diploma (e.g. Agricultural studies, Engineering, Mathematics) or with a diploma in Arts (e.g. Foreign languages, Literature, History) do not meet the entry criteria and hence cannot be considered for admission.
In addition to this minimum of 3 exams, the Admissions Committee may require further exams be passed by the student prior to admittance in the areas of economics, law, history or political science, based on the evaluation of the academic transcript and personal accomplishments. In such cases, no more than 3 additional exams can be requested. These exams may be completed at the student’s own university, or at the University of Florence.
Given the internationalist vocation and the partially English educational offer of the master\'s degree, students are required to hold a C1 or higher English certification at the time of enrollment. Otherwise, once enrolled in the master\'s degree, students will have to achieve this certification by doing the C1 test organized for the degree course by the University Language Center. A specific degree course commission will verify that this certification was acquired by the end of the first year of the master\'s course.
The candidates that intend to complete the full programme in English are exempted from the test of knowledge of Italian language required by the University of Florence. However please note that a basic knowledge of Italian is needed in order to interact with the University administration.
