Humanitas University selects the future students of the international campus: on March 15, in fact, the Assago Forum in Milan will host the entrance test to the degree course in Medicine and Surgery (11:00 a.m.). An opportunity to look to the future and take your first steps in the world of medicine before you even took your baccalaureate. The students will be welcomed by an integrated university with a world-renowned polyclinic and research centre, with a residence just a few steps from the university classrooms, the ideal context for those who want to study in the Life Sciences field.

“More and more young people are asking us when the new entrance tests will be held, in order to be able to face maturity more serenely and plan their future. A need felt especially by those who already have clear ideas. It is with this spirit, considering the centrality of the university years for young people and families, that we decided to bring forward the date of the tests and of the various orientation meetings, which are fundamental in order to be able to make an informed choice” explains Marco Montorsi, Rector of Humanitas University.

The IMAT – International Medical Admissions Test – entry test in English will take place not only at the Assago Forum, but at the same time in 16 other cities around the world.

The first 80 places will be assigned to Italian and foreign students.

Orientation and preparation meetings for students

Since February Humanitas University has been running a special Preparation Week, a week-long intensive preparatory course designed to help students acquire a method of study that will allow them to better take the IMAT admission test.

To support the students and help them identify their path, Humanitas University organizes various orientation activities: from open days at the University, the first already on January 18, to know the details of the training courses and student activities, meet the teachers and visit the Campus, to professional days, to experience the future profession and, therefore, be even more aware of the choice.
