Thesis/Final examination

In order to qualify as a midwife, the student must take a final examination, which he or she can enrol on after passing all the other activities envisaged in his or her training.
Pursuant to Art. 7 of the Inter-Ministerial Decree of 19 February 2009, the final examination consists of:
a) a practical test (State Examination) during which the student must demonstrate that he/she has acquired the theoretical-practical and technical-operational knowledge and skills pertaining to the specific professional profile:
b) the degree thesis.
The two different parts of the final examination must be assessed equally, both contributing to the determination of the final examination grade.
In the event of an inadequate evaluation of the practical test, the examination is interrupted and considered failed, and must therefore be repeated in its entirety at a subsequent sitting.
The following parameters contribute to determining the graduation grade out of 110:
• Average of the marks obtained in the curricular examinations
• Final examination mark, awarded by the Commission, calculated according to the average mark (out of 30) of the final examination
• The examination is deemed passed if the mark is at least 66/110.
It is possible for the student to write the paper in English.
To be admitted to the final examination for the award of the degree, the student must: a) have passed all the prescribed course unit exams and assessments and have acquired the certificates and credits laid down in the regulations;
b) be up to date with the payment of fees, university contributions and incidental expenses;
c) be registered for the final examination.
The final examination of the degree courses has the value of a state exam qualifying successful candidates for professional practice.
