State Examinations

Each year, the MIUR holds sessions for State Exams, licensing applicants to practise the relevant professions. The announcements for 2023 State Exams can be found on the MIUR website (Chartered Accountants,  Regulated Professions and non-regulated professions). Please note that the Ministerial Decree of 25.04.2020 announced a deferral of the exams – there will now be a single oral test carried out online.

It is possible at UPO to pursue a professional licence to practise in these fields:
