Information for international students


They may be held in semesters or annually, depending on the Departments:
Six-month term:
–  1st semester:
From mid/last week of September to the end of February
–  2nd semester:
From mid/last week of February to the end of July.
Lectures usually finish before the end of the term to allow time for the exam period.
Exams are held on different dates during the academic year.
All lectures and exams are held in Italian. In some courses, Erasmus students may also agree with the lecturer an alternative readings list in English and may request to take exams in English.

Before taking your exams, you are asked to verify the correcting wording of the exams, the exact number of credits and the Degree Course in the Student Guide and/or the University you are attending. Make sure that on passing the exam, the examining professor fills out the form called “Modello 100” indicating the same wording of the subject and number of credits previously verified, with the seal of the department. If you take only one part of an exam (module, etc.), make sure the examining professor clearly specifies the number of credits. At some departments, it will be necessary to get your password on-line in order to be able to take your exams.
By doing so, it will be possible to issue the final certificate, at the end of your study period at this University. The final certificate will record your marks and credits that will be recognized by your University.

Credits indicate the workload required for a student with adequate initial preparation to acquire the knowledge and skills envisaged by the course syllabus.
One credit is usually the equivalent of 25 hours of study. These hours include both classroom activities (lectures, practice, seminars), individual study and other training activities like work placements, etc.
The average yearly workload required for a full-time student has been set to 60 credits. Credits are earned by passing the final examination or by successfully completing other forms of assessment. They do not replace grades.
