Course units and programme of study

The programme of study is the set of compulsory and elective course units that the student must take in order to graduate.

Submission of the programme of study for one's year of enrolment is compulsory and is necessary, above all, for registering for examinations and completing the teaching evaluation questionnaires.

All current students must submit their programme of study online via the Esse3 system.

The programme of study may differ depending on the academic year of enrolment ('cohort'); it may also provide for a choice between different study paths ('curriculum').

For a list of the course units that can be included in the programme of study, select the academic year of enrolment and the curriculum.

How the programme of study works

Contact professor: prof. Gualtiero Rota (President of the Degree Course)

The choice of free ECTS credits may be made from among the course units offered by one's own course or those offered by other three-year and/or master's degree courses at the university in the current academic year, provided that no course units already taken in the three-year period or copies of course units already taken are selected.

First-year students are allowed to take free ECTS credits and the internship in advance.

Second-year students are allowed to include in their programme of study up to 12 ECTS credits in addition to the minimums laid down in the curriculum: these examinations, once included, become part of the student's plan for all purposes and must necessarily be taken before graduating.

Programmes of study for students enrolled part-time (part-time): the programme must be completed in hard copy. The copy and useful information will be sent by email (University Account), in case of non-receipt please contact the Course Didactics Service at

Programmes of study for outside prescribed time for course completion students: the programme of study cannot be changed. In the event of justified teaching problems, the student must submit a request for amendment to the Course President for approval by the Course Council. 

A change in the programme of study implies enrolment in the a.y. 2021/2022 and the consequent possibility of graduating from the first useful session of that academic year (July 2022).
