Biologia Enrollment


Enrollment in the Master Degree program requires the possession of a Bachelor's degree or university diploma in Biological Sciences or another qualification obtained abroad, recognized as suitable under current legislation.

In the case of a bachelor degree in different subjects, it is necessary to have obtained a suitable number of ECTS in the basic and characterizing Scientific Disciplinary Sectors foreseen by the Degree in Biological Sciences, considered essential for a successful continuation of the master's studies in Biology. In particular, it is necessary to have obtained at least 87 ECTS overall divided as follows into the following disciplines (or related disciplines with program verification):

  • Botany: 6 ECTS
  • Plant physiology: 6 ECTS
  • Zoology: 6 ECTS
  • Cytology: 6 ECTS
  • Ecology: 6 ECTS
  • General physiology: 6 ECTS
  • Biochemistry: 6 ECTS
  • Molecular biology: 6 ECTS
  • Genetics: 6 ECTS
  • Microbiology: 6 ECTS
  • Physics: 6 ECTS
  • Informatics: 3 ECTS
  • Mathematics: 6 ECTS
  • Chemistry: 12 ECTS

To be admitted to the master's degree program, it is also required that student possesses an adequate personal preparation. Graduates who have earned the title with a score not less than 95/110 (or equivalent grades) are exempted from the verification test of the adequacy of the initial preparation.

Graduates who have earned the title with a score less than 95/110 (or equivalent grades) will undergo verification of the adequacy of the initial preparation. The verification of the curricular requirements and of the adequacy of the personal preparation is carried out by a specific Commission, by examining the university career of the graduate and/or by evaluating the candidate with an interview that can be made also by remote connection. In case of lack of the essential requirements in terms of ECTS in the listed disciplines, or lack of adequate personal preparation, the Teaching Council indicates the training activities that the candidate must perform before the enrolment in the master degree.

Moreover, given that the official language for the master degree in Biology is Italian, a prerequisite for the enrolment is that the student must have at least a B1 certificate for Italian language.
