    • Language proficiency certificate (Italian/English)
    • Passport / ID
    • CV

If the original documents are in a language that is not spoken in the Admissions Office, you may be required to provide a certified Italian translation.

  • Confirmation of eligibility

The Admissions Office will get back to you within 12 business days in order to confirm that you meet the application requirements and that you can take the admission test for your chosen Postgraduate Programme.

  • Admission test

Once you have received confirmation of your eligibility, you can take the admission test (application fee: 120 euros). The test will be taken remotely for applicants residing outside of Italy. If you pass the test, the Admissions Office will send you confirmation of your acceptance!

  • Online enrolment
    You can complete the enrolment process on IULM University online services portal
  • Payment
    To confirm your enrolment, please pay the first instalment. Online payment process is available here.
  • Acceptance letter

The Admissions Office will send you an official letter that you must present to the Italian consular authorities in your country of residence.

Please note:

“Preliminary acceptance by Universities does not substitute in any case the actual pre-enrolment to the course, which happens anyway only and exclusively upon the release of a visa on the part of diplomatic-consular Missions (Part III), while confirming that the suitability evaluation procedures of the foreign qualifications necessary for entry to the courses are the exclusive jurisdiction of the university institutions.”

  • Pre-enrolment request

You must submit your pre-enrolment request to the Italian consular authorities in the period that runs from mid-February to the end of July.

For more details on the procedure and any updates, please visit:

Payment of the first instalment may be refunded upon request only if the Italian consular authorities deny your student visa.

  • Italian test

For programmes taught in Italian: if you are not in possession of an official certificate that proves you have at least a B2 level of the Italian language, you will have to take an Italian test. Remote testing options are available.


It is currently possible to submit your qualifications for a preliminary evaluation of eligibility.

We recommend that non-EU students and students residing outside of Italy submit their application by May 31st.
