The application for a Laurea Magistrale Program (equivalent to an MSc degree) requires only a few steps. You can apply for two Master of Science programs at the same time (1st and 2nd choice); if you are admitted to both of them you will be asked to accept the study program you prefer. Applicants of Architecture and Design will have their second choice evaluated only if not admitted to their first choice. Therefore, please select your program of preference as your first choice.
In order to start the evaluation process, you must upload all the documents required and make sure that your original academic transcripts are received by the International Admission Office within the deadline. Incomplete applications (i.e. missing/not valid documents, no matter if online/sent by post) will be automatically rejected. The International Admissions Office will consider your application only if your transcripts are received by the deadline and if your online application is complete.
Please note that Politecnico di Milano does not require any application fee neither to our Laurea Magistrale programs nor to any kind of scholarship. All applications’ procedures have no fees. Only once you are admitted, you will be asked to pay a non-refundable "Administrative Fee" of about 200.00 €, a mandatory regional and administrative tax which you have to pay in advance to confirm your admittance (scholarship recipients included). It will be deducted from the 2nd installment of your tuition fees.
It is very important that each applicant personally accesses the Online Service with her/his student identification number (person code) and password to check the status of his/her application and the communications sent by the International Admissions Office.
Moreover, admitted students must personally contact the Italian Diplomatic Representative to provide them with the necessary documents and information. Not doing so could cause the rejection of your Visa.
Once admitted, in order to confirm your acceptance, you will be asked to pay an administrative fee of 172,20 €, either by credit card or by bank transfer. The administrative fee will be deducted from the second installment and will not be refunded in case of withdrawal.
Tuition fees for each academic year are divided into two installments. The first installment must be paid upon enrolment, the second within the deadlines. The due amount must be entirely paid and cannot be divided in further installments.
