* This course is open to all; however, all students registering for the first time with the university/Law Degree programme must take an entrance test to verify logical reasoning-interpretational and linguistic aptitude – this is held in November, simultaneously in Alessandria and Novara. Any student who does not pass this test is obliged to follow a 30-hour remedial course to complete the compulsory educational requirements as laid down by MIUR (Italian Ministry of Education, Industry and Research). This remedial course is held alongside the regular course and is coordinated by a member of the teaching staff and/or by 5th year student tutors. The remedial course concludes with a final test to check that all initial gaps in knowledge have been resolved.
