Candidates suffering for dyslexia are required to give notice of disability to CARIS with the same modality. For these students, a 30% extra-time will be granted for the oral interview.

Admission, Evaluation Criteria and Results Communication

For both calls, the selection of candidates aims at verifying, on the basis of the evaluation of the documents submitted (evaluation of the Personal statement and supporting documents) and on the basis of an interview, the adequate preparation of the candidate. In particular, to be admitted to the Course of Study in Global Governance, the candidate shall prove the required knowledge and aptitude for the Course disciplines, i.e.:

  • The knowledge and the ability to argue with clarity and comprehensiveness about the main challenges posed by global phenomena;
  • The knowledge and the ability to argue with clarity and comprehensiveness about the Global Governance training project, also in relation to the candidate’s personal development project.

Following the same procedure, English language knowledge and skills will be verified according to the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages (entry level B2).

The evaluation is carried out on a scale of 0 to 100 total points, divided as follows:

  • Up to 50 points: evaluation of the Personal statement and supporting documents. Students that have achieved a minimum score of 20/50 in the evaluation of the submitted documents shall be declared eligible for the interview; students that have not achieved 20/50 might receive a rejection notification before the end of the selection period.
  • Up to 50 points: oral interview. During the interview, held in English, the Committee shall evaluate the candidate's ability to understand and speak English and the knowledge required by the Course, i.e. the knowledge and the ability to argue with clarity and comprehensiveness on the main challenges of global phenomena, as well as on the Global Governance project, also in relation to the candidate’s personal development project.

The results of the evaluation of the documentation, along with the notification of the date, time and place of the interview, will be announced via email, at the email address provided in the application form, by:

  1. First call: deadline March 31st, 2018.

  2. Second call: deadline June 13st, 2018.

The interviews with students living outside the Lazio Region will be held via videoconference using the Skype software; for students living in the Lazio Region the interview will be held at the School of Economics of the University of Rome Tor Vergata (Via Columbia 2).

It is the responsibility of the candidate to ensure the availability of the required hardware (PC, webcam), software and reliable internet connection.

Candidates who do not show up by the deadlines set in the interview calendar will be excluded from the final ranking list.

Students declared eligible for the interview but not admitted in the first call that apply again in the second call will not have an additional oral interview, and they will maintain the score awarded of the oral interview. However, they will have the possibility to improve their score related to the evaluation of the documents by providing additional experiences gained during the period which has elapsed since the last application.
