STUDENTS FROM ABROAD
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 the programme.
In addition to these minimum 3 exams, based on the evaluation of the academic transcript and personal accomplishments, 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. 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.
In addition, the prospective candidates must have a B2 level of English proven through an international certificate (TOEFL, IELTS, etc) or in any other manner.
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.
How to apply
The students who are European Union (EU) citizens and meet the above requirements must send the application form (here) and the transcript records of their University studies, along with a CV if appropriate, to firstname.lastname@example.org Please see here https://www.unifi.it/vp-10364-eu-students.html for the citizens of a non-EU country that are considered to be equivalent to EU citizens.
