It is mandatory that students register and complete their application before the deadline indicated in the Call for admissions to the BA/MA Courses with entry test. For all other Bachelor's and Master's Degrees, the application must be submitted in the Universitaly portal within the deadline indicated by the Italian Ministry for University and Research.
