Please Note: This page is only intended for foreign students or for Italian students living abroad who wish to take the entry test for Holden Original by email.

Otherwise, please refer to this page in Italian.

You will be able to take the test by email from 1st March to 15th September 2020.

How? We will explain it to you below, in four simple steps.


Fill out the application form.

Once you have completed it, we will send you the test by email.
No prior study is required. The point of the test is to better understand you and your vision, not your overall capability.


Take the test.

You have seven days to finish and send back your answers, so take your time and don’t rush.
During your test week, we’ll arrange a Skype call so we can get to know each other better.

THIRD MOVE (unforgettable)

Think of something else and wait.

You’ll receive your results a week after you’ve submitted the test and you will also find out if you have been admitted to Holden Original. If you haven’t, then sorry, you can always try again next year. If you have, go celebrate and then move on to the next move.


Seven days after you get your results you’ll have to officially register for Scuola Holden. Remember that the College designed for foreign students is called International.
You can however choose another College, if you speak Italian.

You have a week to decide and let us know your preference. In order to be officially admitted to Holden Original you just have to pay the deposit as mentioned (also within seven days).

Speaking of money: two 5,000 euro scholarships are provided for each year of the course (10,000 euro in total) reserved for foreign students. They are assigned by merit, based on the results of the admission test.

That’s all there is to it.

The first day for College International students is 28th September 2020.
