Application &

How To Apply

Torrescalla hosts Italian and foreign students enrolled in Bachelor’s and Master’s. Spots in the Residence are awarded based on an admission test, which consists of the evaluation of the applicants’ academic record and two individual interviews.

The candidate must enter personal data and fill in a questionnaire consisting of school or academic record, linguistic and computer skills, hobbies and personal interests, etc. It is important to upload a short self-presentation video (4 minutes maximum ) which can be followed by a motivational letter. Incomplete applications will not be considered.

The assessment not only takes into account the applicant’s academic merit, but also their extracurricular activities, plans for international experiences, attitude and motivation to participate directly in life at the Residence.

The admission tests are held at the Residence headquarter, where a presentation of the college and its educational training program is given to applicants and their families. It is an opportunity to tour the grounds, meet the direction team, and hear what living and studying at the residence is like from current residents. Due to Covid-19 restrictions the admission tests are held on line.

If you want to apply, register online via our MyCollege platform (please, read below for more information).
