Language Requirements

Admission to the A.Y. 2024/25

Admission to English-language Master programmes at USI requires a good command of English. Non-native English speakers applying to the Master’s or whose previous degree was obtained in another language are required to provide an internationally acknowledged language certificate equal to the B2+ level as defined by the Common European Framework of Reference for Language Learning (CEFR) or equivalent (e.g. TOEFL, IELTS, etc.).

The B2+ level on the CEFR corresponds to the following scores in internationally acknowledged exams:

  Score
IELTS 6.5
TOEFL Internet-based: 85
Cambridge English First grade B
TOEIC Listening & Reading: 860
Speaking: 170
Writing: 170
   

Important:

  • The language certificate must be included in the application package: candidates whose Bachelor's was entirely taught in English must upload an official document mentioning the tuition language (e.g., official transcript, diploma supplement, or any other official certificate issued by the university) in the application form.
  • We only accept the above English qualifications (IELTS, TOEFL, Cambridge English, TOEIC).
  • The certificate must still be valid at the point of the application. We generally cannot accept language test results older than three years as of September 1st.
  • Certificates obtained by passing the IELTS Academic Online or TOEFL iBT Home Edition tests may also be submitted for admission to the programme.
