All candidates who apply in each round will be ranked against each other and offers will be made approximately six weeks after the closure of each round. Your chances of success will probably be highest in the earlier rounds.

Students with 3 A levels in relevant subjects or two Advanced Highers plus four Highers are eligible to apply. International Baccalaureate and Irish Leaving Certificate are also acceptable. Btec Level 3 qualifications are not acceptable anywhere in Italy. (If your mother tongue is Italian you cannot apply on the basis of an A level or Higher in this subject.)
