- The university educational credits system was introduced to facilitate the mobility of students at both national and international level.
- Credits (CFU) are units that are used to measure the total amount of coursework required from a student, in terms of hours of study and tuition.
- One credit corresponds to 25 hours of work. An academic year requires a total of 60 credits.
- Credits are obtained by passing examinations or through other forms of assessment established by each university. They do not count towards the overall mark and are therefore independent of the grade obtained with examinations or assessments of other kinds.
- Grade debits, on the other hand, indicate a lack of adequate preparation for admission to a particular course of study.
