Photo illustrating the news item

Here is a step-by-step guide to make your application to the University of Macerata as successful as possible.

BEFORE starting your online application:

  • Carefully read the official information regarding the preliminary evaluation (pre-admission) for international students available here.
  • Carefully read the programme outline on the application portal for each degree programme in which you are interested: find out the relevant details, such as the programme’s level, duration and structure, language of instruction, entry and language requirements, and career opportunities. Consult the complete list of our degree programmes here
  • At this stage, even last-year students (high school or undergraduate) are allowed to apply for a preliminary evaluation; in this case, provisional documents are accepted for the purpose of the preliminary evaluation. Transcript of records and registration certificate are required.
  • Don’t miss the deadlines of the pre-admission intakes! There are different application rounds (intakes) during which you can apply; the choice of one over another does not interfere on the evaluation outcome which is rather based on the candidates’ fulfillment of the specific admission requirements and the appropriateness of the application. However, we recommend you not to leave applying until the last minutes as it takes certain dedication – but you don’t need to complete the application all at once: consult the intakes’ calendar, and take the due time to complete the application and make a good impression, it is worth!

DURING the application process:

  • You can only register on the portal once by entering with your personal e-mail address: do not registered with multiple addresses; duplicates will be cancelled.
  • Once registered, you can only submit a single application for as many as two (2) different degree programmes.
  • We only accept colour digital copies of your original documents in PDF format.
  • If your entry qualification documents are not in English or Italian, you must provide English or Italian translations: at this stage, you can produce unofficial translations.
  • Please upload only the documents required as indicated in your online application. Any unrequired documentation cannot influence the evaluation of your application.
  • NOTICE: Submission of falsified papers or details implies the rejection of the application at any moment.
  • You don’t need to submit evidence of Italian language proficiency if:
    a) you are an Italian mother-tongue student, as established by the Italian Ministry of University and Research.
    b) you apply for a study programme taught English.
  • Record the specific online interview: by registering at the portal and selecting the programmes of your interest, you receive an e-mail containing a link to start a guided procedure to record the online interview. Please make sure to complete the interview within 10 days from the date of receipt; after this window, the link will expire and you will not be able to do the process. Within the interview, you are asked to answer specific questions (you will know them before starting to record the video) on the motivations on your application and to record short videos (max duration: 60 up to 90 seconds per each video). Please make sure to comply with the required system settings and to record the videos properly; you have max 3 attempts per each question before submitting each video-answer. Be ready to introduce yourself outstandingly! N.B.: you must complete your interview before submitting your application otherwise it will be not evaluated.
  • Get a reference: invite a teacher, adviser or professional who knows you academically to submit a written recommendation through the portal. In order to assure the reference’s confidentiality, we will send a reference invitation to the e-mail address that you supply. The referee will be able to fill in the evaluation online. You will be notified when the reference is submitted. However, you will not be able to see it. You must have provided a reference invitation within your application before submitting it.
  • The “Save” button allows you to save your application when incomplete and to make changes as you work on it over time.

WHILE submitting your application:

  • Use the “Submit” button only after you have completed all fields of the application, uploaded all the required documents, and recorded the online interview.
  • The pre-admission and validation staff of the University of Macerata will only pre-evaluate submitted applications: applications with statuses such as “reopened”, “prepared”, “inactive”, “blank” or “blocked” will not be considered for the evaluation; incomplete applications will remain pending (status “feedback”) until completion by the set terms.
  • NOTICE: Submission of alsified details or ingenuine documents implies the rejection of the application at any moment.

AFTER submitting your application:

  • Regularly check the inbox of the e-mail address you provided during registration and pay attention to the feedbacks and requests of further actions you will receive.
  • The outcome of the pre-evaluation is communicated by e-mail after the deadline of each intake, so please check the intakes’ calendar.
  • In case of eligibility, a pre-admission letter is included in the above mentioned communication; such letter is sent after the deadline of the intake in which a candidate has submitted the application. Please consider that the relevant committee will work on the evalution once an intake has closed, therefore at least two weeks after the deadline are necessary to get a pre-admission letter.
  • If additional information or documents are needed for the pre-evaluation of your application, you will receive our feedback via e-mail, so be sure to provide what is requested by the given deadline.
  • NOTICE: Submission of falsified details or ingenuine documents implies the rejection of the application at any moment.
