Graduates of class L-25 (Agricultural Sciences and Technologies) or of the pre-existing class 20 (Agricultural, Agri-Food and Forestry Sciences and Technologies) will have access to the Master's degree programme in Agri-environmental Sciences, as they meet curricular requirements.
Those who have a degree from a national university, as well as those who have another qualification obtained abroad and recognized as suitable, may also access the programme.
Curricular requirements include solid foundations in mathematics, physics, botany, organic and inorganic chemistry, biochemistry and ecology, and at least 60 CFU in the agricultural, biological, chemical, geological subject areas.
Assessment procedures will be published on the website of the degree programme and the Faculty.
Candidates should have a knowledge of English at or above B1 level, according to the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages (CEFR).
English language proficiency is assessed by the SLAM - University Language Centre during the admission procedure based on:

The certification must be uploaded when submitting the online application;

In case of failure to pass the test, the candidate is not admitted to the Master's degree programme and cannot access further tests.
An examining commission will evaluate the curricular requirements and initial knowledge of candidates through specific interviews, which will be held on the following dates:
- graduates : 18 September 2020 at 2.30 pm, Aula Maggiore, Faculty of Agricultural and Food Sciences, Via Celoria 2;
- students graduating by 31 December 2020: 11 January 2021 at 2.30 pm, Aula Maggiore, Faculty of Agricultural and Food Sciences, Via Celoria 2.
Graduates from the University of Milan in Agricultural Sciences and Technologies, Improvement and protection of mountain environments, Agricultural technology for the environment, Management of Cultivated Plants and Landscaping are exempted from the admission interview.
The examination scores and the related UFC obtained in the partner universities are almost entirely acknowledged by our university for the curriculum studies.
Other possibilities exist in terms of cultural exchange with non EU universities (in China, Japan, Latin America) not involved in the Erasmus programme.
