How to apply
The application for a Laurea Magistrale Programme (equivalent to a MSc degree) requires only a few steps. You can apply for two Master of Science programmes at the same time (1st and 2nd choice); if you are admitted to both of them you will be asked to accept the study programme 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 programme of preference as your first choice.

Any application material received after the deadline will not be considered, therefore it is strongly recommended to send it in good time. Incomplete applications will not be considered. Applications sent by fax or e-mail will not be accepted.
Do not send supplementary documents by post. They won’t be taken into consideration.
We advise you to send your documents with an express courier service so that you can track online the shipping. As soon as the International Admissions Office opens your envelope you will be informed through the message system on your profile.
Candidates from some countries are requested to have their transcripts sent directly by their universities to our offices:
The evaluation process starts once the required documents have been properly uploaded and the Academic Transcripts together with the application receipt have been received by post by the International Admissions Office.
Please note that Politecnico di Milano does NOT require any Application FEE neither to our Laurea Magistrale programmes 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.
