The preparation course for medical studies in Italy is intended for students willing to study in a Medicine Faculty in Italy. In order to be admitted to Italian University, one must pass an entrance examination on scientific subjects (in Italian). For those students who need to take an entrance exam for a restricted access faculty, we provide a special course.
Leonardo da Vinci is among the first schools that offer preparation
courses for medical students. During our thirty years of experience
we have put together a program which in its composition corresponds
to the official program of the entrance exams. In our courses, the
main emphasis is put on the language tuition and a thorough preparation
in the various examination subjects.
the preparation course the students are taught by highly qualified
and experienced lecturers. Purpose of the courses is not only to
successfully pass the entrance exams at university, but, thanks
to a careful tuition of many examination subjects of the first university
year, to enable the students to immediately take up their studies
at the university.
the last thirty years we have prepared several hundred students
to successfully pass the entrance exams for Italian universities.
Students from EU-member countries may apply for the entrance exam directly at the University in Italy (more information: http://www.universitaly.it/). Requirements for enrollment: the upper high school qualification must be translated, authenticated and provided with a "Certificate of equivalence of qualification" (dichiarazione di valore), issued by the Italian Consulate in their country.
Students from other countries must apply to the entrance exam at the italian consular delegation in their country. Before attending the entrance exam (scientific subjects) students must pass an Italian language proficiency test.
are at your disposal for any further information.
Here an example of the course program (subject to changes):
aim of this language program is to provide foreign students wishing
to study Medicine in Italy with the knowledge of the Italian language
necessary to be able to participate in our special courses and to
pass the university entrance examination.
purpose of this course is to provide future medical students the
special scientific vocabulary needed to pass the university entrance
examination and to participate without difficulty in the lectures
and the advanced tutorial classes of the first year of university.
abilities are developed enabling the participant to understand a
scientific subject, to discuss it and to express his opinion in
writing about it. Furthermore, the student is instructed on how
to find his way through the relevant literature and to interpret
in this course requires a good knowledge of the Italian language,
corresponding to Intermediate B1.
