The Italian Admission System to Higher Education: Quality, Equity and Mobility Issues

The Conference of Italian University Rectors (CRUI) has published an article by Niccolo Durazzi, Deputy Director at LSE Enterprise, analysing the Italian higher education admissions system.

The system has been through substantial reform over the past decades, from a 1969 law widening participation to a focus on quality and selectivity in the 1990s. The article (The Italian Admission System to Higher Education: Quality, Equity and Mobility Issues|) analyses the system’s ability to predict students’ academic success, its capacity to cater for the needs of a diverse group of learners and its ability to promote the inbound and outbound mobility of students.

The study notes the importance of strong university administration to handle the increasing decentralisation of the admissions system, looks at ways to facilitate equity in the admissions process and in the overall system, and suggests methods to open up the Italian system to foreign students.
