Admission requirements

30 places are available for students.

If not native English speakers, participants are required to be able to master the language at least at a level B2, according to the Common European Framework of Reference.

The selection of the students will be based on their academic performance found in the transcript of records, on the curriculum vitae, on the reasons expressed by the candidates in their motivational letter and on the English level. (This course will be held in English and therefore it is essential that participants have strong English language skills; thus linguistic proficiency will also be taken into account during the selection procedure)

The selection will also take into account the geographical origin of the applicants to favor an international dimension of the classroom.

The registration procedure for the selection will start from 9th December 2020 and will end on 12th February 2021 at 12 am (Italy time-zone)

Successful applicants will be notified by email within 10 working days after the deadline, asking them to complete the enrolment procedure (registration).

Within 15 days from the notification of the admission, admitted students must confirm their participation in the Summer School.

If applicants make false declarations in the registration procedure, according to the Italian law (art. 76 of the Presidential Decree no. 445 December 28, 2000), they will be excluded from the participant list.

Any application received after the deadline of 12 February 2021 will be considered only if there are positions left to reach the maximum number of places available (30 for students).
