External scholarships 






Two of the scholarships are specifically reserved for students who graduated from non-Italian Universities.

The selection of the foreign students applying for the two reserved scholarships, will be carried out exclusively through the evaluation of the submitted titles and a telematic interview (e.g. Skype). Participants who are not resident in Italy will participate in the selection and oral interview via a remote platform which will be activated specifically for this selection.

The selection announcement will be available starting in March and will remain available for participation for 30 days after its publication on the official website of the University and the Department of Pharmacy.

The various tests and assessments will be carried out by the end of May and the PhD course will start from November 2, 2020.
