Admission Committee and Interviews

All students enrolling at the first year of the master’s degree course in “International Tourism and Destination Management/ITourDeM” (LM-49) must pass an interview to be formally admitted.


After having delivered the documentation to the administrative offices within pre-enrolment procedure, a specific Admission Committee will analyse it and evaluate the candidate’s entry qualifications (curricular requirements).

Afterwards, the Council of the courses in Cultural Heritage and Tourism Sciences will decide if the student are admitted to ITourDeM with or without gap(s) in specific subject areas.

Only in case of a successful result of the interview, students can proceed with the formal enrolment and the payment of the tuition fees, enabling them to advance in the career at the University of Macerata, by getting credits attached to exams and other teaching activities.


  • Students can attend classes while waiting for the Council’s decision and even before passing the interview
  • Students can sit any exam only after the formal enrolment and the settlement of the due tuition fees

Modalities and references for the Interview A.Y. 2021/22

The interview will be ONLY oral for those students with no specific discipline areas to cover: they will have an oral interview about background, motivation and languages. During the interview phase, the Commission verifies knowledge of English at least at level B2 (in the absence of certification), personal preparation and, for international students (from year 21/22), also the possession of a certification of knowledge of Italian language at least at level B2.
If the international student has a certificate of knowledge of Italian language at least level B2, the Commission invites him/her to present an application for recognition for the Italian language activity (optional procedure for the student).

All the others will also attend a written test (open and/or closed questions) depending on the area to cover, communicated to them after the official pre-enrollment from 15th July and the Council answer.
The written text will last around 60 minutes. Students must prepare for the written text using the text indicated for each areas here below, depending on the Council answer to their pre-enrollment.
