Why should I study here?

This is a public school, so the tuition depends on the student's income bracket.  The tuition listed is the maximum amount that would be due.

What are the admissions criteria?

The national admissions requirements for American students are an IB or 3 AP score of 3+.  In addition, there is an entrance exam for bachelor's programs. SAT scores can be submitted in order to gain exemption from the entrance exam. However, the entrance exam for the bachelor's degree in architecture is mandatory and given at the school every September. This means that students do not have a decision around admissions until just weeks before the program begins.  The architecture program is highly selective, but the other programs do not have an enrollment cap and are non-selective. The Italian application process is quite complicated and outlined on the Italy country page of this database. 

What is student life like?

The campus encompasses education and research aims and services for the local community, offering a multicultural learning environment for students that is closely linked to current corporate reality by working with companies on projects which give students the opportunity to gain work experience before graduating. The campuses of the Politecnico di Torino draw inspiration from the structure of Anglo-Saxon ones, with multipurpose buildings for teaching, basic and applied research and services to the students in Turin, and a regional network of technological centers (Alessandria, Biella, Mondovì, Verrès), dedicated to research activities, technological transfer, specialist education and services to the region. Through PolitoSport, our University aims to enhance the potential of university sport as an effective and transversal tool for training, research, innovation, and improvement of well-being and university experience. Because sport at the Politecnico di Torino means: social inclusion, integration, overcoming ideological barriers, an integral part of the university experience, a factor of sociability, aggregation, a sense of belonging, identity, brand, and a healthy and sustainable lifestyle. The Politecnico di Torino hosts many international student associations. Associations are created to unite a group of people coming from the same country to share experiences, create connections, and give support to both students already at the Politecnico and prospective students. Furthermore, students in the association become ambassadors for their country’s culture and traditions and can help in spreading these values to reach all the Politecnico students.

Scholarships & Funding

All international students are entitled to the same student assistance services (scholarships, student loans, housing assistance, canteen meal tickets, and fee waivers) as Italian students, on the basis of the same requisites of financial means and/or merit. Students can benefit from fee exemptions or reductions according to their family's financial situation. The requirements that EU and non-EU students must meet in order to gain such benefits are yearly set. 

Housing options.

The school directs international students to Sportello Casa Service to help with housing.  Shared housing can generally be found for 250-350 euros per month.

Dining information

There are several canteens that offer lunch and dinner for 5.5–7.5 euros.

Additional notes.

The first year for all of the bachelor's level engineering programs is the same and is offered in both English and Italian. Not only does this allow students to easily change their focus after the second year, but it also allows students without sufficient Italian proficiency to apply for the Italian-conducted programs.  These students will take the first year of courses in English while taking intensive language courses provided by the school.  After the first year, they can choose whether to begin the Italian program or switch to an English-conducted option. Only the English conducted options are listed in this database.

The Myth of American Exceptionalism

Featuring Jennifer Viemont
We're going to be talking about the differences in the educational experience, meaning the academic side of things that students have in Europe versus in the US. So I'm always taken aback when people assume that universities in the US are the best globally.
