“Select your programme” section

In this section you have to choose the Master’s degree programme/s you want to apply for. You can apply for a maximum of 2 Master’s degree programmes.

If you apply for a Master’s degree programme taught both in English and in Italian, it won’t be counted as 2 programmes, but as a single choice. e.g. Ingegneria Meccanica + Mechanical Engineering = 1 choice

We remind you that you will NOT be able to modify your choices after you submit your application.  

"Educational background" section

Apply inserimento studi compiuti

In this section you are required to provide information on your previous academic studies (university of origin), in particular:

  • the denomination of your Bachelor’s degree programme and degree classification. If you have already obtained your Bachelor’s degree, please enter the date of degree conferral and your final grade;
  • each course or learning activity included in your Personal Study Plan with its Scientific Disciplinary Field (SSD), number of credits, exam date and grade (if already passed) - incomplete courses - for a minimum of 180 CFU:
    • For each exam that you have passed you need to provide the Scientific Disciplinary Field (SSD), the number of  credits, the date of the exam and grade;
    • Pass-or-fail exams (registered without a grade on a scale of 30) might not have a Scientific Disciplinary Field (SSD). In this case please select ***N/A*** (not available);
    • If a course has more than one Scientific Disciplinary Field (SSD), you need to enter it as many times as the number of its SSD. Each time you need to repeat the denomination of the course, the grade  and the number of credits for each SSD;
    • Incomplete exams at the time of application submission: if you pass these exams after the submission of your application, you will be able to add their grades and dates after the submission of your application but you must do so no later than the deadline for enrolment.
IMPORTANT: If you do not enter a total of 180 CFU in this section, you will not be able to continue.


If you want to transfer to a Master’s degree programme, you also need to provide the details of the Master’s exams that you have already taken at your current university. You can modify these data (EDUCATIONAL BACKGROUND) until the registration of your Bachelor's degree (date of conferral and final grade). After this registration  (“Degree awarded”), if you wish to modify your data, you need to contact the Office of Student Services using the Ticketing system (“FAQ/Ticket” section). 


IMPORTANT: Do not upload any course syllabus to the ATTACHMENTS section if you are not transferring from another university. Do not select the "credits recognition" option in the Educational background section. In fact, your Bachelor's credits are considered only to verify if you meet the curricular requirement for admission to Politecnico (evaluation of the Scientific Disciplinary Fields).

“Language skills” section

caricamento certificazioni lingua candidatura Magistrale
Procedura certificazione linguistica

In this section, you need to enter the details of your English language certificate.

You can submit your application even if you do not have a language certificate yet, but you need to get it and upload a scanned copy of your certificate before the deadline for online enrolment.  

The procedure for filling in the certification is carried out by selecting from the different drop-down menus the most suitable option for the certification to be considered for admission. The different fields to be filled in are:

Family: select the certification type (IELTS, CAMBRIDGE, TOEFL, etc.);
Certificate: select the CEFR level;
