Applying to a Master's in Italy
Applying to a Master's degree in Italy goes a bit differently: you have to ask for an eligibility feedback from the university, telling you the chances of getting admitted or not. If you get a positive answer, you will have to submit a pre-application request to an Italian embassy or consulate closer to you. Then, the embassy or consulate will deal with your application.
Documents you will need to provide include:
- Your ID or passport;
- Your academic transcripts;
- The university application form;
- A detailed description of what you studied;
- Your CV;
- A letter of recommendation;
- A letter of motivation;
- A language proficiency test (English or Italian, depending on what you study);
- Your SAT or ACT scores.
Master's degrees in Italy can be found both in English and Italian, so, depending on what you choose, you will have 2 different types of proficiency diplomas you will have to provide. For Italian, you should present a CILS or a CELI. For English, you should present TOEFL, TOEIC, IELTS, or Cambridge. The application deadlines for Italy applications are usually in April – May.
