Examination registration information

In order to register for an examination, one must:
1. Having completed the PROGRAMME OF STUDY online The student must submit the Programme of Study online otherwise he/she will not be able to enrol and, therefore, take the examinations of his/her year but only those of the previous year. For example, a student in year III may only register for examinations in years I and II but will not be able to sit for year III examinations or complete the teaching evaluation questionnaires until he/she submits the Programme of Study.
2. Having completed the EVALUATION QUESTIONNAIRE
3. FREQUENCY The student may only sit examinations at the end of the semester in which the course was taught (from December for first-semester courses; from May for second-semester or annual courses). For courses from previous years, attendance is deemed to have already been acquired, so the student may take the examinations at any call.
N.B. When the student inserts a new 'elective' course in the current academic year's Programme of Study, even if it replaces a course chosen in previous years, he/she is obliged to comply with the semester requirement. 
Students transferring from other universities are requested to inquire at the Student registry office about any attendance already acquired at their university of origin.
4. Having complied with the compulsory "PROPAEDEUTICTIES", if provided for by one's own regulations
5. Be up-to-date with the payment of fees (under penalty of cancellation of the examination wrongly taken).

Enrolment for examinations by e-mail - Students enrolled in a study course closed to new candidates

Students enrolled in  study course closed to new candidates (four-year degree course in Law, specialised degree programme in Law, first-cycle degree course in Legal Sciences, first-cycle degree course in Legal Services) may NOT use the ESSE3 system.
Therefore, students wishing to register for an exam MUST send an email directly to the lecturer in charge of the teaching, during the registration period: 15 to 4 days before the date set for the call.
What to write in the email The email should be sent with 'high priority' and should have as subject 'Examination registration.......on.....'.
The text of the email must specify the name, matriculation number, the degree course in which the student is enrolled and the year of enrolment.

Student opinion survey questionnaires (OPIS)

The survey of students' opinions concerning teaching is implemented by means of the 'Student Opinion Survey Questionnaires (OPIS)' and is an indispensable element in enabling the improvement of teaching, quality and organisation of study courses.
A 90-minute information video is available at https://youtu.be/TmqvjU6DQdY. This video provides information of interest to male and female students.
The Questionnaire should be completed by the student at the end of the lecture cycle of each course.
For students who have not previously taken the assessment, the ESSE3 IT system requires mandatory completion of the questionnaires when registering for the examination.

The degree course has produced an INFORMATIVE VIDEO to be consulted for a correct interpretation of the questionnaire, also in the light of online teaching:
Since students are only allowed to express their opinions with regard to their year's courses, they are asked to complete all the questionnaires activated in the academic year by the deadline. 2023/2024.
The second-cycle degree coursein Law, for the compilation of the questionnaires relating to the a.y. subjects. 2023/2024, has identified the following start periods:

  • 06/11/2023 to 30/09/2024 (1st semester teachings)
  • 18/03/2024 to 28/02/2025 (2nd semester and Annual teachings)
