POLIMI opens doctoral training to external candidates

Starting 2019, Politecnico di Milano has established to open its doctoral courses to all interested external candidates. To be enrolled, candidates must register at the POLIMI website ( -> "Register") and then they will find in their online services webpage the function “Application for doctoral single courses”

By selecting it, candidates will be asked to choose the course(s) of interest (up to 10 credits per year) and to upload a CV and a motivation letter.

Their request will be evaluated promptly. In case of positive evaluation (which depends also on the course slots availability), candidates will proceed with the registration and may start attending the course. After successful completion of the course training, the candidates will be able to download from the same website a certificate attesting the earned credits.

The registration fee amounts to 500,00 € / 5 credits. Selected categories (including Visiting PhDs, PhD candidates of Institutions with which agreements have been signed, and employees of companies which have signed a “Joint Research Center” agreement with POLIMI) will receive a fee waiver, and will be requested to pay only the cost of the stamp and the insurance: for the academic year 2018/2019 the total amount is 32.20€.
