Preliminary evaluation and letter of eligibility for pre-enrolment
The Coordinator of the Master Degree Program will assess the applicants’ background and education, their potential skills and attitude to attend the offered programme. If necessary, an interview may be set up with the applicants: they will be interviewed by the Coordinator and the Evaluation Committee, who will evaluate their motivation, expectations, and technical skills, as well as their mastering of the English language. The admitted applicants will receive a formal admission letter by email. The latter must be included in the pre-enrolment documentation to apply for a Student Visa.
