What is

For pre-registration and the test you will not have to pay anything. Payment of the registration fee and regional fee is due at the time of confirmation of registration.

You must pay the registration fee and regional fee.

N.B.: Pre-registration and verification of personal preparation adequacy are free of charge. Payment of the application fee and regional fee is expected at the time of confirmation of registration.

How it works

To be admitted to the master's degree program in Engineering for Natural Hazard Management, if you meet the curricular requirements, you must successfully take a personal readiness test (except in the cases indicated below).

The test is conducted in the form of a public interview, written test or video-interview by teleconference.

English proficiency at the B2 level or higher can be attested by appropriate certificates in your possession or by passing the test B2 organized by the University of Genoa Language Center (CLAT UniGe). The English proficiency requirement is also met if you hold a degree in English, to be certified through an official document or letter issued by the corresponding university and indicating that your studies were conducted in English. If the preceding conditions are not met, English proficiency must be assessed as part of the aforementioned personal readiness test by the corresponding Examination Board.
