Admission requirements and topics

In order to be admitted in the PhD programme, applicants must be in possession of an Academic degree title which grants access to a third level education programme (PhD) in the country it has been issued.
Applications are also accepted from students who expect to complete their degree by October 31st 2024.    

For admission requirements and how to apply, please consult the Call for Applications located in the "Downloads" section on the right. Only the Italian version of the PhD Call is legally binding.

Deadline: May 7th, 2024, hrs. 04:00 PM (CEST)

The application must be completed and submitted exclusively via the online system: Doctoral Programmes Applications
The application is subject to €15 non-refundable fee.

 It is strongly recommended not to wait until the last few days prior to the deadline to submit your application.
Once you have completed and submitted your application, please ensure that you receive an email notification confirming the completion of your application.

The list below is a brief, non-exhaustive summary of what needs to be uploaded to the application:
♦  scanned copy of the applicant's ID card (only EU citizens) or passport (non-EU citizens)
♦  M.Sc/M.A. degree transcript of records and diploma
♦  Curriculum Vitae
♦  Motivation letter
♦  Research Proposal 
♦  English language certificate with minimum level B2 

When filling out the online application form, applicants must select only one Research Area in which they are interested. Within the same Research area they may choose up to a maximum of 2 scholarships on reserved topics
Applicants may also opt for additional scholarships which will be available AFTER the publication of this call and will be published on the selection website.

PLEASE NOTE:
The applicants who will have the application open after the publication of additional scholarships can apply for those scholarships by using the entry “Other” in the proper section of the online application.

The applicants who will have already closed and sent the application before the publication of additional scholarships can apply for those scholarships by an additional application that will be available.
