The call for admission is divided into two separate sessions: the spring session and the summer session.

Selected applicants may benefit from scholarships assigned on a merit basis and depending on the expertise in the concerned research field, according to the candidate's position in the final ranking list. The winners of an ordinary position with PhD scholarship, allocated within the spring session of the call, may receive a pre-PhD scholarship with a maximum duration of six months.

Available positions are divided into: 
  • Ordinary positions 
    • Positions associated to Ph.D. scholarships without an assigned research topic; 
    • Positions associated to Ph.D. scholarships with an assigned research topic; 
    • Positions for Ph.D. in apprenticeship; 
    • Positions without scholarship.    
  • Reserved positions 
    • Positions reserved to recipients of scholarships, granted by governmental, national or international bodies, who are found eligible to be admitted in a Ph.D. programme;
    • Position reserved to students selected under specific international agreements in which Politecnico di Torino and Università di Torino are involved;
    • Positions reserved to research fellows.
Some positions are reserved to students selected by special Boards within the framework of specific international programmes, in which Politecnico di Torino is involved.

PhD students without scholarships shall comply with the same regualtions applying for students with scholarship. They shall attend courses and carry out research activities, as provided by the Academic Board.  PhD students without scholarship shall also pay tuition fees.
