Sapienza University of Rome has officially published the call for admission to the 31st cycle of PhD Programmes.
Applications are invited from candidates, regardless of gender, age and nationality, who hold an Italian “diploma di laurea/laurea specialistica/laurea magistrale” or an equivalent second-level degree obtained abroad (generally equivalent to a Masters) or expect to receive their degree by October 31, 2015.
Each PhD programme adopts different admission procedures. Usually, however, the procedure includes both a written and an oral examination. Nonetheless, there are exceptions and you are advised to check the Italian version of the call (see right-hand column) for the exact procedure to follow for the PhD programme that interests you. You will often be redirected to the website of the PhD programme where you can find instructions in English.
The duration of all PhD programmes is three years. Courses may be taught in Italian.
