Domus Academy projects

Find out all the details regarding the qualifications required to apply to Domus Academy Master’s Programmes.


To be eligible to enroll in a Domus Academy Academic Master’s or Double Award Master’s Programme, you must have:

A first-level academic degree (bachelor’s degree or academic diploma) in a field related to your selected master’s course.

Our master’s programmes are also open to students with a different degree or diploma, provided that the applicant is motivated by strong interest in the programme’s topics and demonstrates the necessary technical skills.

The programme leader and members of the Admissions Committee evaluate each application and determine whether the candidate’s previous education and technical skills meet the entry requirements.

Certificate of English language proficiency on entry: IELTS 5.0 for the Academic Master’s Programmes, IELTS 5.5 for the Double Award Master’s Programmes.

Knowledge of the English language, both written and spoken, is a prerequisite for admission. See below for English language requirements for entry into our Academic Master’s*/ Double Award Master’s Programmes + Preparatory programme. Your certificate must be submitted at least two months before the beginning of the programme and should not be older than two years.

* If you are applying to one of our Academic Master’s Programmes and meet the academic requirements but your IELTS score is 4.5, you can get your score up to 5.0 by taking our Intensive English course at the same time as the Master’s Programme.


To qualify for admission to Italian universities/academies and to receive a recognized degree (Academic Master / Master Accademico di Primo Livello), students holding a bachelor’s degree from a school outside the Italian system must contact the Italian embassy or consulate in the country where the degree was issued in order to obtain the:

  • Declaration of Value of the bachelor’s degree (a document in Italian describing the degree awarded, used to assess the degree’s equivalency within the Italian system)
  • Notarized translation, into Italian, of the bachelor’s degree
  • Notarized translation, into Italian, of any academic transcripts

You must submit the original copies of these documents to the Domus Academy International Admissions Office as soon as they are available, and no later than the course start date.

For a complete list of Italian authorities worldwide, visit the website of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs.

Upon successfully completing the program, eligible students will receive the title of Academic Master, worth 60 ECTS (credits) and recognized by MUR (Italian Ministry of Universities and Research) via Nuova Accademia di Belle Arti (NABA).

Students not holding a recognized bachelor’s degree/academic diploma, or who do not submit a Declaration of Value, will not earn the Academic Master title. Instead, they will receive a Domus Academy diploma (a private title not recognized by MUR).
