Questions about the Call for admission to MIBE academic year 20/21

When is the place effectively occupied?

The place is guaranteed the moment a students gets direct admission.  Enrollment is therefore the final step, but the place is already reserved beforehand, if the student has been admitted.

In a few weeks I will be in a position to submit a better application (as I am going to take more exams, get a language certificate, etc…) , is it better to wait?

Unfortunately it is a question of trade-off: if waiting too long, the risk is not to find any more places available. On the other hand, waiting may mean achieving a better mark.

The choice is yours. The only thing we can advise is to keep an eye on the number of admissions and, when the seats available are becoming fewer and fewer, immediately submit your application.

Keep therefore an eye on the list of enrolled students, which is constantly going to be updated at this link :http://www.unipv.eu/site/home/articolo13110.html
