Why should I study here?

The University of Milan was founded in 1924, uniting two institutions that boasted a great tradition of medical, scientific and humanistic studies: the Accademia Scientifico-Letteraria (Scientific-Literary Academy), active since 1861, and the Istituti Clinici di Perfezionamento (Clinical Specialisation Institutes), established in 1906.

What are the admissions criteria?

In addition to the national admissions requirements for American students (IB or 3 AP classes), applicants must also take an online exam.  This is a non-selective test and, though you must take it as you apply, you don't have to pass it to apply or gain acceptance.  Its purpose is to evaluate initial knowledge in certain areas.  Students can take it again and again, but certain parts would need to be passed in order to register for certain required classes (for instance passing math and logic is a precondition for registering for statistics.)  For more information on the admissions process, check out the Italy country page of this database. Non-EU citizens resident abroad must contact the Italian embassy or consulate in their country of residence for the pre-application procedure. For applicants to medical programs: Applications are accepted from March 23-July 7th. US students must have an IB or 3 AP score of 3+ to apply to schools in Italy. Admissions decisions are based solely on the results of admissions tests which have questions related to general knowledge, logic, biology, chemistry, physics, and math. Exams are held annually in either September or April in global locations, including NY.

What is student life like?

There are many happy hours held in bars and restaurants in town that are popular with students because they are cheap with large food buffets. ESN is also at the university, offering activities, trips, parties, and more.

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.
