Preselection Application for Non European Candidates
Outstanding candidates who are not citizens of the European Union (EU) member states may be admitted by means of a preselection which takes place every Spring, based on their academic and scientific qualifications.
Applicants interested in participating in this preselection must have a University degree which qualifies them for a Ph.D. program. For more information about the various courses, you can click here.
An online application must be filled and sent using the procedure available at this page usually by the end of March.
Candidates should upload the following documents in pdf format:
- Curriculum vitae et studiorum;
- A certificate of University examinations taken (with marks) in Italian, English, French, German or Spanish;
- A final degree certificate (if already obtained) in Italian, English, French, German or Spanish.
The final degree must be obtained before October 31st, so if a candidate does not have it at the time of application, he/she can present it even after the deadline.
- Any further information which the candidate may consider useful will be welcome.
When choosing the Ph.D. course(s) candidates will have to indicate the names and email addresses of two professors that will be asked to send a recommendation letter through the same online procedure.
A confirmation message will be sent to the candidate when he/she will complete the application process.
The candidate will then have to print out the admission request form, sign it and send it, together with a copy o fan ID document (i.e. passport) by fax or post to the address printed on the form itself.
The request form must reach SISSA 8 days after the deadline at the latest. Late arrival of the application, for whatever reason, will not be accepted.
The results of the selection will be known by the end of April.
Admitted candidates will be expected to pass a qualifying examination within the first year of study. All necessary information about the online procedure can be found at this page.
