Engineering for natural risk management
Master degree

Prerequisites assessment

How it works 

If the admission criteria are met, you will have to take a prerequisites assessment in front of a committee to ascertain your general knowledge.

To be admitted to the Master’s degree course in Engineering for Natural Risk Management, if you hold the curriculum requirements, you are supposed to successfully undergo a test to verify your personal preparation (except in the cases indicated below; see “Exemptions”).

The test is carried out in the form of a public interview, a written test, or a video-interview through teleconference.

You can certify your English proficiency at the B2 level or higher by means of appropriate certificates in your possession or by passing the B2 test organized by the Language Center of the University of Genoa (CLAT UniGe). The English proficiency requirement is also satisfied if you hold a degree in English, to be certified through an official document or letter issued by the corresponding university and indicating that your studies were pursued in English. If the previous conditions are not fulfilled, English proficiency must be evaluated within the aforementioned personal preparation test by the corresponding Examination Committee.

Exemptions  

The adequacy of personal preparation is automatically verified for those who have obtained a Bachelor’s degree, Italian or foreign – or a qualification judged equivalent according to what has been indicated about the assessment of curricular requirements –, with a final mark of at least 9/10 of the maximum achievable mark of their degree, or who have obtained a final mark corresponding at least to the “A” classification of the ECTS system.
