Ranking examination

In order to understand the examination, applicants must possess a knowledge of Italian (minimum level B2), and an intermediate-level of English. After having applied, potential students will receive a link to where they can test their linguistic competences. Applicants whose linguistic competences are lower than the specified levels are not excluded in advance from taking the ranking examination

Written ranking examination
The written exam is divided into two parts:

  • Analysis of the contents of a text on a current topic related to the area of study, and other questions and exercises of an aptitudinal nature. The test does not require specific preparation, however being updated on the Leisure area can be useful. This first test also provides the opportunity to assess the level of proficiency in Italian for non-Italian native speakers.
    This test will take place on Saturday, May 13th 2023 in the morning. Timetable information will be communicated later.
     
  • English exam aimed to test understanding, writing and listening skills. Candidates in possession of international certificates or certifications obtained from other universities which attest that their English level is equal to or higher than B2, can ask for an exemption. The exemption is not automatic and can be recognized only after a careful evaluation of the certificates sent. Certifications must not have been issued by more than three years and must be sent to deass.leisure@supsi.ch.
    The test will take place, as the previous one, on Saturday, May 13th 2023 in the afternoon. Timetable information will be communicated later.

The results achieved in written exam will determine which applicants can proceed to the oral examination.
All communication with the candidates will take place exclusively by e-mail to the address indicated during the application process.

Oral ranking examination

This individual interview aims to test personal aptitude, motivation and perception of future educational and professional development activities. The interview will take place in Italian and in English, from 23 May 2023 on.

The scores achieved in the oral examination will determine the final ranking of applicants admitted to the Bachelor in Leisure Management.

Admission requirements

The ranking examination is open to applicants holding one of the following qualifications:
  • vocational school-leaving certificate in commerce/business or equivalent;
  • vocational school-leaving certificate in a non-related area and a work experience period congruent with the contents of the study programme;
  • foreign high school diploma will be evaluated and can require a work experience period.

Applicants admitted on the basis of prior learning

Applications are also accepted from those who are aged more than 25 and who lack the required qualifications, but whom the Course Directors believe possess an education and a work experience that are significant and appropriate for the sector. These applicants must take an oral test on the fundamentals of management. Successful completion of this test will qualify them to take the ranking examination.
The preliminary oral exam for admission on the basis of prior learning will take place in the period 1st-10th May 2023. The procedure, the time and the duration of the examination will be communicated by e-mail to all candidates a few days in advance.
