Qualifications and skills required for admission
Admission into the Master's Degree Programme in Law is conditional upon earning a secondary, high-school, or college-preparatory diploma, or other equivalent foreign diploma, and suitable recognised educational qualifications.
Enrolment in the programme is not capped.
The Faculty requires a non-binding self-assessment test (CISIA Consortium TOLC-SU). This is mandatory for all students, and intended to educate students on the choice they are making, assess their educational background, especially their general baseline of knowledge, and their reasoning and logic abilities. The dates and procedures for the test will be provided in the general call for applications.
Additional learning requirements (OFA)
Students may matriculate regardless of their test results. Students scoring less than 20/50 on the first three sections or less than 12/30 in the Reading comprehension and Italian language portion of the test will be assigned additional learning requirements (OFA) aimed at filling these gaps. The OFA must be satisfied within the first year of the programme through the remedial work contemplated by the University. Information on OFA procedures and failure to complete the OFA will be provided on the degree programme's webpage.
English-language OFA Proficiency Level B2
In order to sit the English-language exam required by the study plan, students must be proficient in English at B2 level under the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages (CEFR). This proficiency level may be certified as follows:
- Through a language certificate, earned within three years prior to the date of submission, at B2 level or higher. For the list of language certificates recognised by the University, please review: https://www.unimi.it/en/node/297/. The certificate must be uploaded during the enrolment procedure, or subsequently to the portal http://studente.unimi.it/uploadCertificazioniLingue;
- Through a Placement Test, which is delivered by the University Language Centre (SLAM), during year I only, from October to December. Students who fail the test will be required to take a SLAM course.
The Placement Test is mandatory for all students who do not hold a valid certificate.
Those who do not sit the Placement Test by December, or who fail to pass the end-of-course test within six attempts, must obtain a paid certificate by the programme year contemplated for their exam in English.
