No need to wait until spring to apply for study at UniTrento: admissions are open. This time, the University of Trento launched the admission procedure to the academic year 2023/24 in November, earlier than usual. The calls for admissions to many undergraduate and single-cycle degree programmes will open tomorrow, Friday 18 November.
Tolc tests are different based on the type of programme, but the calls do not change. There will be two rounds of admissions, the first in February and the second between March and April. For the first session, applicants must register between 18 November and 17 February 2023 (by 12.00 noon), while the second session runs from 1 March to 21 April 2023 (12.00 noon). A third session should be held in August, in that case another call for admissions will be published, to fill any available places.
Prospective students wishing to apply for study at UniTrento must therefore choose quickly. This solution – the University's Admissions Office explained – offers prospective students many advantages. First of all, they can reserve a spot at UniTrento well in advance, so that they can focus on their high-school final exam. And this gives more time to those students from out of town to find a place to rent in Trento or Rovereto.
After two years in which tests were online only because of the pandemic, now we are returning to in person tests: these will take place in the computer rooms of the University, but prospective students can still take the test from home. Besides, those who want to apply for a programme with admission test will improve their chances of passing, because they can take the test on different dates and locations throughout Italy through the CISIA Consortium, and retain their best score (by 17 February 2023 for the first round of admissions, and by 21 April 2023 for the second).
The calls for admissions to programmes where students are selected based on the TOLC test will be published by Friday 18 November.

The call for admission to Medicine and Surgery will follow the publication of the Ministerial Decree. Applicants will take a computer-based test ("TOLC MED" type) in April or in July, and can retain their best score (therefore they have more chances to pass).
