Key Considerations:

  • EU Places: Increased in Cattolica Rome (from 30 to 40), Humanitas Med and MedTech (from 140 to 150 and from 70 to 80), Siena (from 22 to 23). Decreased in Padova (from 80 to 75), Poli Marche (from 25 to 20), and Campus Biomedico (from 78 to 72). Other allocations remain unchanged.
  • Non-EU Places: Increased in Humanitas MedTech (from 10 to 20), Padova (from 20 to 25, rebalancing EU places), Poli Marche (from 55 to 60, rebalancing EU places). Decreased in Milan (from 25 to 15, increasing competition). Other allocations remain unchanged.
  • Final Seat Announcements: Confirmed for Catania (30 EU + 30 non-EU) and Bolzano (50 EU + 10 non-EU).
  • Total Public Seats: EU Med → 919; EU Dentistry → 42; non-EU Med → 475; non-EU Dentistry → 18.
  • Year-on-Year Comparison: Last year, total EU seats for Med and Dentistry were 914. This year, it’s 961 due to the new entry of Cagliari. Dentistry seats remain constant for both EU and non-EU.
