Admission of foreign students

The procedure is made of two steps: application (Step 1) and formal enrollment (Step 2). The steps are described below.

The window for applications of international (EU and non-EU) students to the 2020-2021 academic year is January – March 31st. This is necessary in order to meet all the bureaucratic requirements before the program starts. However, candidates (especially non-EU ones) are suggested to apply as soon as possible.

As a minimum requirement, candidates are expected to have already passed exams on topics related to Economics and Mathematics/Statistics for 48 ECTS credits, of which at least 12 from the area of Mathematics/Statistics. A CEFR B2 or higher level on spoken and written English is also required.

STEP 1: Application

Please read carefully the call for application for pre-admission and non-EU students scholarship available at  call for application for pre-admission and non-EU scholarships (English translation of the call and annex available). Deadline: March 31st 2020.

Perspective international students must fill the online application form available here  and upload the following documents in English (please refer to the call for pre-evaluation for details):

  • Curriculum vitae
  • Statement of purpose /motivation letter: a short text (one or two pages) explaining why the applicant is interested in MAGEC
  • Official transcripts of any university degree achieved, with indication of the exams passed (Diploma Supplement or equivalent). EU students are required to report ECTS credits
  • Scanned copy of passport data page
  • Copy of degree certificate or a certificate of enrolment which states the expected completion date

The Admission Committee will assess applications individually and on an ongoing basis. Students will be informed by email about the outcome of the assessment. As a general indication, around 10% of the applications we receive pass Step 1. For further information on the pre-admission process please contact:

NOTE that in line with the enrichment of the course of studies with additional modules on applied economics and data analysis, the course appears in the application form under the denomination of “Economics and Data Analysis

Beware that passing Step 1 does not automatically imply admission, as the original documents first have to be validated by the university administrative staff.

STEP 2: Enrollment

Students passing Step 1 must follow the rules listed  here
