The Catalogue includes, for each course, calls, lists, test venues, the list of subjects, lesson timetables (as to the latter, from September on).
The Bachelor’s and the Master’s Degree Programmes (altogether, the study programmes) have different access procedures. In compliance with the ministerial provisions in force, there are:
DEGREE PROGRAMMES WITH ACCESS TESTS FOR SKILLS ASSESSMENT
Such programmes do not impose any access restrictions but require the student’s participation in a test. Terms and procedures to participate in tests for single or groups of programmes are governed by the call. Enrolment in such programmes is subject both to participation in a test and to completion of the enrolment procedures in compliance with the terms and deadlines provided for by the call, regardless of their ranking in the list. Upon completion of the test, students may be assigned some additional learning requirements to be fulfilled according to the procedures provided for by each Faculty.
RESTRICTED ACCESS STUDY PROGRAMMES
Such programmes provide for access restrictions on the number of students to be enrolled, that is indicated in the call issued for each study programme. To enrol in restricted access study programmes, students must participate in a test in compliance with the call procedures, achieve a suitable ranking with regard to the set number of places and complete the enrolment procedures within the deadline provided for by the call.
FIRST-LEVEL AND SECOND-LEVEL PROFESSIONAL MASTERS
First-level and second-level masters are postgraduate courses (following a Bachelor’s or a Master’s Degree) managed by the University in cooperation with professionals and entrepreneurs.
They are aimed at:
- offering new graduates a further training and specialization in the scientific field of interest;
- improving the specific skills of professionals thanks to refresher courses.
PhD is the highest academic educational level and is open to all those who already hold a single-cycle or a Master’s Degree.
Three years is the length for PhD courses. The admission is subject to call and access is restricted to a small number of graduates.
Those who have successfully completed a PhD course will be awarded a PhD degree.
ADVANCED PROFESSIONAL COURSES
The University promotes, also in collaboration with public and private bodies, postgraduate and refresher courses, in compliance with the regulations in force and with art. 2, paragraph 10, of the University Educational Regulations. The advanced training courses have access requirements specific for each course and are of a shorter duration than professional masters’.
Professional courses are aimed both at cultural and professional enhancement (vocational and continuous training, cultural activities, preparation courses for public competitions and for professional qualifying examinations, refresher courses for staff).
