All the Bachelor’s degree programmes offered by Politecnico di Torino are based on a “locally programmed admission” scheme. A limited number of students per program is foreseen and therefore only those students who obtain the best scores in the admission test can be admitted, until the prearranged maximum number of students is reached.
Special attention should be paid at the Bachelor degree in Architettura/ Architecture that is based on a “national programmed admission” scheme. In order to be admitted you need to sit for the related Admission Test at the specific university you applied for as first choice on the specific date established annually by the Italian Ministry of Education, Universities and Research.
