Previous academic year

Requirements and knowledge required for access
Graduates of class L-27 Chemical Sciences and of the corresponding class relating to DM 509/99 can access the master's degree course in Chemical Sciences, which is recognized as having full possession of the curricular requirements, necessary to face the master's studies.
Graduates of other class degree courses can also access it, as well as those in possession of a qualification obtained abroad, recognized as suitable, provided that they demonstrate that they possess the necessary skills to successfully follow their studies. The curricular requirements required for admission to the degree course in Chemical Sciences are those of graduates of classes L-27. In particular, the following are required:
=> at least 20 ECTS in mathematical, computer science and physical disciplines;
=> at least 70 ECTS in the scientific-disciplinary sectors of the characterizing areas of the Table of class L27:
- chemical-analytical and environmental disciplines (CHIM/01 and CHIM/12)
- chemical-physical and chemical-inorganic disciplines (CHIM/02 and CHIM/03)
- chemical-industrial and technological disciplines (CHIM/04, CHIM/05, ING-IND/21, ING-IND/22 and ING-IND/25)
- chemical-organic and biochemical disciplines (CHIM/06, BIO/10, BIO/11 and BIO/12).

The possible presence of CFUs in scientific-disciplinary sectors not included among those listed will be evaluated by the commission for access to the Degree Course.
Italian and foreign students with an academic degree obtained in Italy must necessarily submit an application for admission online, in the period and according to the methods indicated on the site
https://www.unimi.it/it/corsi/corsi-di-laurea/scienze-chimiche where you can also find all the up-to-date information on the admission procedure.
Undergraduates who intend to graduate by December 31, 2023 can also apply for admission.

Methods of verification of knowledge and personal preparation
Admission requires the possession of the above curricular requirements and adequate personal preparation that will be evaluated by a Commission composed of at least three teachers of the CDs, appointed by the Didactic College of Chemical Sciences and Technologies. The test to verify the adequacy of the preparation of candidates is selective even if the above curricular requirements are met.
In particular, the verification of knowledge and personal preparation will be verified in the following ways:

a) execution of the European chemistr Test (https://ectn.eu/committees/virtual-education-community/echemtest/) for the assessment of skills in Chemistry, provided by the European chemistr Th
Network. The test includes questions, in English, multiple choice on topics grouped into four sections: Analytical Chemistry, Physical Chemistry, Inorganic Chemistry and Organic Chemistry.
The test is considered passed if at least 20% of correct answers have been given in each of the four sections. In case of slight deficiencies (15-19%) the Access Commission reserves the right to summon the candidate in any case to better assess his preparation;

b) interview with the Access Commission that will focus on topics related to the disciplines dealt with in the fundamental courses of the Degrees of the Class L-27. The negative result obtained in the interview with the Access Commission, entails the foreclosure of access to the Master's degree course for the current year.

The EChemTest will take place in July and September 2023, according to a calendar that will be communicated on the website of the Course of Study (https://scienzechimiche.cdl.unimi.it/it). The test will be delivered remotely. An identification document is required to carry out the test. In the following days the interview with the Access Commission will be scheduled (possibly even remotely). A further edition of the EChemTest, for any recoveries of deficiencies, will take place in December 2023, with its subsequent interview. It is possible to take only a recovery test, subsequent to the one carried out and in which insufficiency has been found in one or more parts of the same.
The test and the interview can be carried out even before the graduation, subject to the possession of the curricular requirements indicated above.

ALL CANDIDATES, INCLUDING THOSE WHO PLAN TO GRADUATE BY DECEMBER 31, 2023, ARE WARMLY INVITED TO PRESENT THEMSELVES AT THE FIRST (July) or SECOND (September) TEST AND THEN INTERVIEW BY ADMISSION.

Graduates who have successfully passed the verification tests will be able to enroll after 5 working days from the date of verification, in the terms indicated on the site https://www.unimi.it/en/study/bachelor-and-master-study/degree-programm…

For etra EU students, who may have visa and/or residence permit problems, an EChemTest will also be scheduled in May. In addition, it will be possible for them to schedule the interview remotely using a video conferencing platform. We strongly advise these students to use this opportunity to avoid the risk of not being able to obtain all the documentation for matriculation in good time.
