For students who have a non-Italian degree, possible exemption depends on the outcome of the evaluation conducted by the Admission Committee and will be communicated to the student along with the result of the assessment of his/her prerequisites.


If you graduated in UniGe with a recent degree (ex DM 509) and your degree meets the admission criteria, you must directly access the UniGe Online Services.

If you are a UniGe graduate but your degree does not automatically meet the admission criteria or you are a graduate of another university, you have to:

  1. Access the UniGe Online Service
  2. Upload your study career (only for students coming from other Universities), including the prospectus of examinations with the indication, for each subject, of the scientific disciplinary areas and the relevant CFU. At this time, you will have to choose the date for your Admission test.
    N.B. The documentation must be uploaded within 10 days from the date you intend to join.

You will be informed of the outcome of the verification of the admission criteria before the date scheduled for the admission test.

If you don't succeed in the admission criteria verification, you will not be able to take part in the admission test. In this case, you will be suggested a bridge career (carriera ponte) to fill the curricular deficiencies identified.

If instead, you do not pass the admission test, you will be able to take the test for a different Master's Degree or submit to the next test.

N.B. If your Bachelor's degree grade is at least 9/10 of the maximum or has obtained a final grade corresponding to the "A" or "B" classification of the ECTS system, you will not have to take the Admission Test.


You can attend the admission test even if you are not graduated yet, as long as you have already succeeded all the exams and your career meets the admission requirements.

In this case, after pre-enrollment, you have to access Unige's Online Services and choose the admission test date on which you would like to join in.

N.B. As you are not graduated yet, remember that you will not be able to take advantage of the possible exemption for the degree grade.
