The Master's degree course in Plant Science is the result of an agreement between the University of Milan (UNIMI) and the University of Grenoble-Alpes (UGA), France. The master course is a collaborative effort planned to allow students to achieve two Master degrees, one from UNIMI and one from UGA. The agreement requires that students attend courses and take exams at either Universities.
In particular, during the first year, students will be attending the first semester courses at UGA and the second semester at UNIMI. In their second year, students may stay at UGA or at UNIMI, depending on the location of laboratory where they decide to carry out the compulsory experimental thesis work.
Students admitted to the Plant Science Master degree will receive a contribution to support higher costs arising from their stay at UGA. The level of each contribution will relate to the ISEEE declared by the relevant student. Students who wish to spend the second year or part of it at UGA can apply for a further scholarship, or for other support provided by UNIMI. More information is available here

This is going to be verified through 1) evaluation of the bachelor study program and 2) direct assessment of candidate scientific background knowledge. The candidate’s background knowledge in Biology will be tested by an interview with the Commission for Admittance to the Master, composed by teaching members appointed by the Teaching Board. The interview will evaluate the expertise of the candidate in topics related to Plant Science degree, and will ascertain the knowledge of the English language.
