The Scuola Leonardo da Vinci® organizes preparation courses for entry to Italian universities, dedicated to foreign students. Courses aim to prepare students in all of the different areas of knowledge, on which they will be tested during the entrance exam. The test is, in fact, a way to select students who want to enter faculties with a fixed number of students (Medicine, Dentistry, Architecture), but it is also obligatory for many other faculties (Engineering, Maths, Statistics, Chemistry, Biology, Law, Economics and Business, Languages, Literature, Philosophy, Health professions) that do not have a limited number of places. Tests are composed of multiple choice questions about: a) logical abilities and comprehension of texts; b) general cultural knowledge; c) knowledge about specific sectors related to the different degree courses. Our courses are structured to best prepare students in each of these three sections, working in specific ways, using past papers and in-depth lexical analysis.

The cultural element includes lessons, in addition to a final written work in which each student will have the opportunity to explore the themes which have interested them the most, during the course.
