The Higher Educational System

Higher education in Italy includes Italian and English programs. Candidates completing secondary education will have to compete in the panathinaic examinations organized by the Italian Ministry of Education. Candidates compete at the university’s headquarters (or seats) with 80 multiple choice questions covering their respective subject matter (eg for medical schools: mathematics, physics, biology and chemistry). A large percentage of questions (35-50%) also occupy the questions of general culture.

The rating of the candidate is based on the following system: Each correct question wins one point (+1), the wrong one loses a quarter of the point (-0.25) and the one that is not answered does not cause any change. Enter those who scored best, until the seats offered are covered.

For some specialties (such as Pharmacy) there are no examinations, or there are intra-university levels. Panitale examinations take place every September. The exact date is announced by the Italian Ministry of Education. The test language is either Italian or English (IMAT, conducted with the collaboration of Cambridge University), depending on the language of the program for which the candidate competes.

Successful completion of studies at an Italian university may lead to the following qualifications:

Bachelor (Laurea): 3 or 5-6 consecutive years of continuing studies for the acquisition and postgraduate degree.

Master (Laurea Magistrale / Specialist): 2 years.

Doctorate (Dottorato di ricerca): 3-5 years

Tuition Fees – Cost of Living

Tuition fees (as far as state institutions are concerned) are based on two factors: a) the student’s annual income; and b) the classification of the program by the institution itself into four categories. Also, students are required to pay a fixed amount per year, varying per institution (from 150-500 Euros). In this way, a very poor student (less than 12,000 Euro per year) will pay only the fixed amount, while a very rich (over 70,000 Euros per year) will pay around 3,500, plus the fixed amount. In private universities, tuition fees are clearly superior. Tuition fees should be added to the subsistence and subsistence costs (around 1,000-1,200 Euros per month). For students, however, unable to cover their expenses, scholarships and student loans are provided through the state institution DSU (Diritto allo studio universitario)
