The entry qualification documents are accepted in the following languages: Italian.
You must take the original entry qualification documents along with you when you finally go to the university.
If you are a non European student residing abroad, you need to do a pre-enrollment via Italian Consulate and start the visa procedures. The official admission at the University of Pavia will be possible only after you will have done this pre-enrollment. Please get in contact with the Italian authority in your country as soon as possible (more information on how to proceed with the pre-enrollment are available at this page).
Non-eu students residing abroad who would like to enroll in a study course completely taught in Italian, have to prove their knowledge of the language through an Italian language test.
The following are excluded from this obligation:

The Master’s Degree Program in “Neurobiologia” aims to provide students who are in possession of first level training in the biological or biotechnological field, with in-depth knowledge of the morpho-functional organization of the nervous system, the cellular and molecular correlates of neural functions, and modalities in which these functions are realized at the systemic level, as well as on the neurobiological bases of the pathologies of the nervous system.
The aim of the Course is to allow the acquisition not only of a cognitive training, but also of specific skills such as:
• Modalities governing experimental and applied neurobiological research, regarding its recent trends, and the technologies it relies on
• Applications of neurobiological knowledge and techniques in the industrial, bio-system and bioinformatics fields
The primary objective of the training course will be to highlight the fundamental problems in the neuroscientific field (integrated functions, cellular mechanisms, genetic and molecular substrates, bases of pathological processes), underlining the importance of multidisciplinary approaches for the progress of knowledge.

Neurosciences are, together with genetic-molecular disciplines and cancer research, the field of biological sciences that experienced the most impetuous development in recent decades.
A specific preparation in the neurobiological field therefore offers concrete possibilities for inclusion in work positions expected to expand.
Universities, hospitals, public and private research institutions, pharmaceutical-biotech companies, biomedical instrumentation development and sales companies are the entry points into the world of professional activities for graduates in Neurobiology.
In addition, the graduate in Neurobiology may consider joining the educational-dissemination activity aimed at spreading knowledge on the nervous system and the biological foundations of neural functions, school education, once the teaching qualification process has been completed and the competitions required by current legislation are passed.
