Specific Instructions for International Applicants
If you intend to select POLIMI as one possible entry destination in your EIT Digital study trajectory, and if you have a degree obtained outside Italy, you should submit also a local application through the Online Services of POLIMI in addition to the main EIT Digital application. Your POLIMI application will be linked by our Student Office to your main EIT Digital application and it will be subject to the final results of the general selection process at EIT Digital level.
How to apply at Polimi level
Your local application through Polimi Online Services requires only a few steps and it’s done entirely online.
- First of all, you need to register for POLIMI Online Services: https://www.polimi.it/en/online-services/
- Then, fill out the online application form on POLIMI Online Services, labelled: “Apply to a Master of Science programme (only for international and Italian candidates graduated abroad): Submit online application form, results release and enrolment“
- All the EIT Digital candidates should apply for the local MSc programme in “Computer Science and Engineering” (regardless of the specific EIT Digital study path, you won’t see it in the list). At this stage you need to select the general study track T2A Computer Science and Engineering. You will be moved to the proper EIT Digital study track afterwards.
- Upload the required documents. You can provide the same application documents that you are using for the main EIT Digital application on the Master School’s portal: Bachelor’s documents, English certificate, Letter of motivation, Curriculum Vitae. Additional documents for Polimi: program of bachelor courses and a reference letter from a professor or employer.
More information about the local application process can be found here.
EIT candidates don’t have to pay the local application fee to POLIMI, nor the administrative fee. Please, ignore the last step with the payment request and ignore any automated reminders/emails asking for the POLIMI application fee. As such, your local application is considered valid only for the EIT Digital programme and your admission to POLIMI is subordinated to the final results of the general EIT Digital selection process. Only if you intend to apply to Polimi for its local MSc programmes independently of the EIT Digital Master School, or if you are also applying for other local master degrees not related to EIT, in these cases the regular Polimi’s application fee is due.
Specific Instructions for Applicants from Italian Universities (Laurea Triennale)
If you have (or if you are completing) the Laurea Triennale in Italy, you just need to apply through the EIT Digital Application Portal.
If interested, get in touch ASAP with Federico Schiepatti, programme manager at Politenico di Milano email@example.com.
What you need to do
No additional local application to POLIMI is needed at this stage. Based on the results of your main application through the EIT Digital portal, if you are successfully accepted to the Master School with Polimi as your first-year university, then we will follow up directly with you about the next steps for completing the enrolling at Polimi level. Registrations to Polimi open yearly from July to August, with enrolment in September (first semester intake).
For conditionally admitted students (not graduated yet), the bachelor degree is required by November to finalize the enrolment in Polimi.

If you are a student from Ingegneria Informatica at Politecnico di Milano, you can easily obtain the required academic documentation for your application in pdf (proof of current enrolment or degree certificate, transcript of records with all the exams passed), signed and stamped, by writing an email to email@example.com. We offer a dedicated support to EIT Digital applicants, so let’s get in touch!

Study trajectory: entry and exit university
In your EIT Digital application, you can express up to three preferences as entry university and three preferences as exit university. We invite you to put Politecnico di Milano once, as your first preference for the entry university. On the exit-year side, select up to three exit universities that you would like to attend for the second year, in the order of your preference. In the end, based on the availability of places at each university and on their evaluation of your application, you will receive a study offer on a specific trajectory of entry-exit university combination.
Language requirements for Polimi as entry university
If you choose Polimi for the first year, make sure that you have a valid English proficiency test. You need to submit the English proof at the same time as your EIT Digital application through the EIT Digital portal.
- IELTS >= 6
- CAE (Cambridge Advanced): grades A-C are accepted
- FCE (Cambridge First): only grades A-B are accepted

The other exit universities may have different English requirements even for the second year.
