The call for applications with the admission procedure for a.y. 2023-2024 is available!
Yes, an entry test is required as the score determines the ranking of the list of applicants. For a.y. 2023-2024, we accept TOLC-I, TOLC-S and SAT tests to this end, with scores obtained from January 2021. The minimum scores to be included in the ranking are 18 for TOLC-I and TOLC-S, and 960 for the SAT. For further information on the ranking method, minimum scores, and other requirements, please consult the call for applications for a.y. 2023-2024.
The entry test is necessary for the pre-selections too! For more information, visit the pre-selections page.
For the schedule and location of the tests, we suggest you regularly check the websites of CISIA and College Board (the organisers of the TOLC-I/TOLC-S and SAT tests, respectively). The schedule of the English TOLC-I tests is available at https://tolc.cisiaonline.it/calendario.php?tolc=ingegneria&lingua=inglese, the schedule of the TOLC-S tests is available at https://tolc.cisiaonline.it/calendario.php?tolc=scienze, and the schedule of the SAT tests is available at https://collegereadiness.collegeboard.org/sat/register/dates-deadlines
All the TOLC university centres guarantee the same procedures. Therefore, the result of the TOLC-I or TOLC-S tests is valid to us regardless of where it physically took place: https://www.cisiaonline.it/en/area-tematica-tolc-cisia/regolamento-tolccasa/
You can take the TOLC-I, TOLC-S and SAT tests multiple times. The best score among those you achieved will be considered (for SAT scores: provided you submitted them via the College Board portal). To know more about the frequency with which tests can be repeated, please visit the websites of CISIA and College Board (the organisers of the TOLC-I/TOLC-S and SAT tests, respectively).
We consider the following certificates and test scores to testify to the knowledge of English required to attend our courses:
Candidates are exempted from the submission of the aforementioned test scores testifying their knowledge of English if they submit one of the following:
Yes, of course. The full calendar with deadlines and selection round dates is available in the call for applications.
The pre-selection is required to start the visa process and is a requirement for non-EU students residing abroad to participate in the selection rounds. The pre-selection process is explained at the dedicated page.
The selection procedure is described in the program’s call for applications.
The pre-enrolment refers to the mechanism with which successful students in the first selection round can secure their place in advance, as the final enrolment takes place in September (see, e.g., Articles 5 and 6 in the call for applications).
You should first take part in the pre-selection process for non-EU students. For further information, please consult the dedicated web page.
Upon the acquisition of the pre-selection letter from Sapienza and your acceptance notification, you can take part in the selection rounds as per the call for applications.
The pre-selection process does not suffice for admission. To complete your enrolment, you should follow the instructions contained in the program’s call for applications.
Once the pre-selection application is closed and submitted, data will be saved in the system and made available to the evaluation committee for review. From that point till the decision of the committee, no further change is granted, so we recommend you make sure to carefully check every piece of information entered and every document attached before submitting them. We express our gratitude in advance for your collaboration and understanding!
Thank you for applying! The university staff is working full-time to analyze the input and cross-check the pre-selection applications. We are happy to confirm we are receiving a very high amount of requests. They will be back to you as soon as possible. Thank you in advance for your understanding.
The pre-acceptance letter reads: “Please note that once you accept your offer for the Bachelor's Degree in Applied Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence, you will not be able to accept other admission offers or apply for other programmes for the current academic year.” First things first: if you read that line, it means you have been pre-selected, so congratulations! Now, your choice about the acceptance would be binding in the sole context of Sapienza offers – namely, you should only accept one offer if you applied for a pre-selection in multiple Bachelor programmes. Notice, however, that the Universitaly portal will require you to indicate one specific university programme. For the rest of the world, no constraint is meant to, or even can, be exerted. Please take your time to decide what destination suits best your plans!
As said above: congratulations, first of all! As ACSAI is a restricted-access degree programme with a limited number of seats available, we would kindly ask you to decide whether you wanted to accept the pre-selection within 45 days after the notification. Thank you very much for your understanding!
Of course: Please submit your SAT Score via the College Board portal using the Higher Ed. Institution Code of the Sapienza University of Rome: 9038.
Fingers crossed for you! We require that you submit the SAT score via College Board portal as described above. TOLC-I and TOLC-S results are immediately accessible by Sapienza as soon as the test is graded. So, no, you do not need to send any scores via email. If you are applying for the pre-selection phase, you should attach the PDF of the result via the pre-selection portal.
The ranking update occurs if selected candidates renounce or do not proceed with their enrolment: say, e.g., two candidates do not enrol in the programme though they got no. 32 and 42 in the ranking list (thus within the 50 places available); the candidates who initially got positions no. 51 and 52 enter the top 50 upon the following ranking update.
Based on our experience, we’d say that the sooner the students apply, the better it is for all counterparts: The students can secure their places earlier (see the FAQ below) and the university can distribute the resources in the management of the process more efficiently.
Those students who are successful during their round can proceed with pre-enrolment and enrolment, independently of the performance of other applicants in the following rounds. The place is secured unless the applicants themselves do not deem otherwise — another reason why it might be better to apply sooner than later (see the FAQ above).
The full calendar is available in the call for applications. If you are non-EU student, please make sure to have submitted your pre-selection application before the date specified on the pre-selection page.
The English TOLC-I and SAT tests are not only required to ascertain that the candidate can write, speak and understand concepts in English, but especially to have a unified score with which applicants can enter a ranking out of which the top N (where N depends on the selection round) are admitted. Therefore, even for native English speakers, an entry test is required.
Please check the documents you have, or have not, uploaded. For example, it could be the case that your evidence of English language proficiency or your admission test score is missing or does not meet the requirements to be preselected for ACSAI.
Notice that only a selected set of international tests (IELTS, TOEFL, CAE, and others) with given minimum scores are accepted to certify an adequate knowledge of the English language. Please consult the detailed list of requirements on the pre-selections page. The certificate must be in PDF format, conforming to the original, and show your data and results. A certificate of completion of the test alone or a screenshot is not sufficient.
One of the admission test scores accepted by ACSAI (TOLC-I, TOLC-S, and SAT) is required to certify an adequate level of mathematics and science, logical reasoning and verbal comprehension. Please consult the detailed list of requirements on the pre-selections page. The test score should have been acquired from the 1st of January 2021. The certificate must be in PDF format, conforming to the original, and show your data and results. A certificate of completion of the test alone or a screenshot is not sufficient.
As soon as you notice what is missing, please upload the necessary documents via the pre-selection online portal reachable from the pre-selections page.
The call for applications regulates both new matriculation processes and transfers from other programs and universities. Notice that transfers are subject to a preliminary selection via an entry test. Notice that the process involves the Hello - Foreign Student Office (see https://www.uniroma1.it/en/pagina/office-students-international-degrees) for international students, and the Student Affairs Office of the Faculty of Information Engineering, Computer Science and Statistics
