Admission to IMT's PhD program is competitive on an international level, with evaluation mainly focusing on past academic performance (grades) and scientific relevance to the selected curricula. First and foremost, however, certain basic formal requirements must be met before candidates are eligible to apply. Namely, applicants must have completed and obtained a degree equivalent to at least 4 years of university studies. (Students in their final year of undergraduate study may be admitted on the condition that their bachelor's degree is awarded before they enroll at IMT.)
Applications are open to candidates without regard to nationality, age, gender or religion. Proficiency in English is compulsory as research and teaching are conducted in English. No knowledge of Italian is requested. Candidates must apply via the online application form by the deadline set in the Call for Applications (July 13th, 2016 at 18:00 Italian time).
A university degree of at least 4 years or full time equivalent. For an Italian degree, a "Laurea Magistrale" (or "Specialistica") or a "Laurea Vecchio Ordinamento". For foreign degrees, eligibility will be assessed by the PhD Selection Committee.
Applicants obtaining their degree by no later than October 31st, 2016 can also apply.
All students admitted to the PhD program are not required to pay tuition fees. A number of grants are available to support the participation to the program (see exact number in the current call. Additional grants may become available after the launch of the call). Grants are assigned to admitted students according to the final ranking determined by the evaluation process. The grant is €13,638.47 per year (≅ €12,378.30 net/year), and can be increased by 50% during the periods spent abroad for study and research (from 2 to 9 months).
All students who are granted a scholarship have free accommodation in shared double rooms on campus residential facilities (with the exception of students whose permanent residence is within 50km of IMT).
All PhD students at IMT are offered free meals (lunch and dinner) at the School canteen located on campus. Lunch and dinner are served each day, Monday through Sunday, for the entire academic year. Vegetarian menus or take-away meals are available on request through the online canteen reservation system.
