Assessment of Adequacy of Personal Readiness

What is

The Assessment of Adequacy of Personal Readiness is the tool provided by the Educational Regulations to assess your preparation for the purpose of matriculation to the Master's Degree.

Who should conduct the Verification

How to access

To take the Verification of Adequacy of Graduate Personal Readiness you must do the pre-registration so as to be on the lists of students who must take the test.

Following that, if the test is successful, you must confirm your matriculation.

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

For the purpose of admission to the Master's Degree Program, if you meet the curricular requirements, you will be required to successfully take a test to verify your personal preparation, except as provided in the last paragraph. The test will be conducted in the form of a public interview or written test, and will be aimed at ascertaining your general preparation with particular reference to knowledge of engineering fundamentals.

The test is taken before a committee appointed by the CCS and composed of faculty members related to the CCS. In the Announcement for Admission to the Master's Degree Courses of the Polytechnic School and on the website of the Master's Degree Course are indicated: the composition of the Examination Committee, the modalities of the test, the place and date, the topics to be examined, and the criteria for the evaluation of candidates.

If you hold a degree obtained abroad, you will have to take a specific Italian language proficiency test administered by the University's School of Italian Language and Culture to ascertain your possession of the B2 level of Italian Language. If you fail the test, you will have to take free Italian courses organized by the University of Genoa to reach the required level of Italian language proficiency.
