Any suitable graduate student (or graduate-to-be) can apply to the Ph.D. programme according to the call of the University of Bologna. Selected candidates must hold a second level degree at the beginning of their Ph.D. programme (November, 1st).

The selection of candidates proceeds through 2 stages: first the CV of the candidates is evaluated (through the info each candidate submits electronically by the stated deadline). Then, the selected candidates are invited to an oral (or skype) interview with the admission committee. The admission committee then publishes the ranking and the selected Ph.D. candidates are then requested to officially enroll in the programme at the dedicated University office.
