Scuola Leonardo da Vinci® Florence, Milan, and Rome organize a preparation course geared towards foreign students who wish to attend University in Italy. Some of the universities require students to take an entrance exam in order to be accepted into a specific program/major. Whether or not an exam is required for matriculation, our course prepares students for success throughout their degree’s curriculum.
In some cases, an entrance exam is required for all applicants, with a limited number of students accepted into a specific University program. In other circumstances, students will take an exam solely to introduce them to topics related to their major, with an open number of applicants and as well as student acceptance.
Our University preparation course at Scuola Leonardo da Vinci® will prepare students by reinforcing language skills, enhancing writing competence, and by focusing on subject matter and vocabulary closely related to each specialized program.
- Critical thinking and reasoning and general Cultural themes (40 classes)
- Specific knowledge in each University course (100 classes)
To attend and complete the course, competence in Italian is imperative. At a minimum, a level of B1 or B2 according to the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages is required.
Course Structure and Method
Critical thinking and reasoning
Throughout the course, students will work on the materials of the admission tests from previous years. The goal is to incorporate specific types of logical reasoning and practice testing. In particular, the Critical Thinking section centers upon summarizing and drawing conclusions, identifying assumptions, assessing the impact of additional evidence, and detecting reasoning errors. As for the Problem Solving section, students will practice with questions related to numerical and spatial skills. Exercises will be divided into three areas: relevant selection, selecting specific information to discover a solution; finding procedures, finding the method in which you can use to generate a solution; and finally identifying similarity, being able to identify the same information presented in a different way.
General Culture and Scientific topics
Both areas during the course introduce the fundamental content that has been represented through the admission tests from previous years. The scientific-driven portion of the course, in addition to the vital content, lends special attention to science-specific vocabulary. It is essential to be familiar with this vocabulary in order to be successful during the exam and also at University.
Specific knowledge in scientific areas
Especially in the lessons focused on specific scientific sectors, special attention will be given to specialized lexicon – besides content – since it is necessary to have a good knowledge of such a vocabulary in order to face the entrance exam.
Below you find in detail the different topics dealt during the lessons with relation to the different majors.

Medicine and Dentistry are limited enrolment majors and students necessarily have to pass an entrance exam. For this reason, Scuola Leonardo da Vinci in Florence, Rome, and Milan created a specific training program.
