Pay attention. This page is intended only for foreign students or for Italian students living abroad who want to enrol in College Storytelling. Otherwise, please refer to this page in Italian.


First move

You fill in the Application Form.


When we receive it, we will send you the test by email.

You’ll have to complete seven different tests, one for each College, but don’t worry; you don’t need to study. It’s not to test your capacities, but to better understand you and your vision.

Second move

You do the entry test.


You have ten days to complete the tests and send your answers back. Take your time, don’t be hasty, but don’t lose time either.

During this ten days, we’ll fix a Skype call just to say hi and to get to know each other better.


Third move (unforgettable)

Think of something else and wait.


In a week time, you will receive the results of your test. Then, you will also know if you have been admitted to Scuola Holden and have won a scholarship.

You’ll have to pass four tests on a total of seven to be admitted; you’ll have to get straight A’s in four tests to win a scholarship.


If you haven’t been admitted, sorry, stop here, the game is over (try again next year). If you do have, go celebrate and then step on to the next move.


Fourth move

In seven days’ time, you’ll have to officially register to Scuola Holden.


As you remember, there is a test for every College. If you get at least a C in the corresponding test, you can enrol in that College. If you don’t get any D’s, you can enrol anywhere.

Remember that the College designed for foreign students is Storytelling. However, you could also choose another College if you speak Italian perfectly.


You have a week to decide, let us know what’s your choice.

In order to officially be admitted to Scuola Holden you just have to pay a deposit (also within seven days).


That’s it. You can relax for a while.

The first day of school is October 18th, 2018.


A suggestion

You’d better make all of your moves fast, without waiting until the last minute.

Why? Because Scuola Holden has 170 places and it would be terribly annoying if you made up your mind when there were no more left. Plus, there are only 20 scholarships this year and, like many other things in life, at some point they may run out too.
