Specific entry requirements will depend on the chosen course. PLEASE NOTE that “Laurea Magistrale” corresponds to a Master Degree which is the only degree that grants access to third cycle programmes, also known as PhD, and a “Masters” corresponds to a Postgraduate Degree which is a two-year programme for specialization in courses, which guarantees a more practical education but does not give access to further level of studies.
