EIT Digital Double Degree – Local Recruitment at POLIMI for 2022/23
If you missed the main round of application, here is the last chance to start the EIT Digital Master School in 2022/23: join as a Parallel Entry Student for the first year at Polimi. Then you will be invited to apply directly for second-year admission to an EIT Digital partner university (exit university) where to complete your studies and get the double degree. Express your interest by 30 September at the latest!
At the beginning of the semester, among the local students newly admitted to the master degree in Computer Science and Engineering at Polimi, we recruit for the EIT Digital double-degree programme a small number of Parallel Entry Students (aka ‘PES’) to be moved to the specific EIT Digital study plans since the beginning of the first year.
They are called “parallel” because for the entry year they are Polimi local students, but they attend first-year courses and all the dedicated educational activities together with the class of EIT Digital students. PES are pre-selected by us to start the first year at Polimi and follow the EIT Digital study plan. During the first semester, PES will be invited to officially apply to EIT Digital for admission to second year at another university (exit university) where to complete the double-degree programme in the following academic year.
Consider starting the EIT Digital Master School as a Parallel Entry Student at Polimi!
Requirements for applying as Parallel Entry Students (PES)
Being successfully admitted to Politecnico di Milano to the first year of the local master’s degree course in Computer Science and Engineering
Enrolling at Politecnico di Milano in September (first semester intake)
How to apply as a PES at Polimi?
By the end of September (the sooner the better), students enrolling to the first year of Computer Science and Engineering may express interest in being considered as PES for the EIT Digital double-degree programme, by writing an email to Federico Schiepatti: firstname.lastname@example.org. If you are not a local student from Polimi’s laurea triennale, please also attach a transcript of records with the exams passed during your bachelor studies
By the end of September at the latest, the selected students will receive our confirmation on their acceptance on the local EIT Digital study track as PES, so they can start along with the other EIT Digital entry students. The Student Office will change the study plan accordingly, enabling the EIT Digital study track
During the first semester of the first year, our selected PES will be invited to apply online through the EIT Digital portal for admission to an exit university, where to move for the second year of studies after the first year at Polimi. During the application, you can express up to three preferences of exit universities. Results about final admission to the exit university are expected by February
For the first year at Polimi, PES will follow the normal student contribution that applies to all Polimi enrolled students.
Only for the second year, PES officially earn the “full status” of EIT Digital students, thus benefitting from the total exemption of the local university fees, which are entirely waived off both at Polimi and at the exit university where they enrol for the second year. University fees are replaced by the EIT Digital tuition fees (to be paid directly to EIT Digital).
Possible merit-based tuition fee waivers (partial or total) are assigned by EIT Digital to top-ranked applicants to cover participation costs, together with the second-year study offer.
