Admission requirements and assessment of previously acquired knowledge/competences

To be accepted on this degree programme you need to have a five-year secondary school diploma or equivalent qualification obtained abroad, or a four-year secondary school diploma and diploma for the relative supplementary year, or, where no longer active (e.g. teaching high school), will be assigned additional learning credits.
You also need the following learning background: good general knowledge; ability to reason logically and understand written texts; good knowledge of basic mathematics.
This is a restricted-access degree programme for which a ranking list will be formed according to the results of an access test which all students must sit. The procedure and criteria of the access test will be outlined in the Call for applications. From the ranking list a pass-mark will be set allowing those above it onto the programme without any catch-up requirement. Those included in the intake but below that pass-mark will be set an additional learning requirement (known as an OFA). The OFA must be fulfilled during the first year of the programme and within the deadline set by the University.
If a student has passed at least one of the exams Mathematical Analysis - Linear Algebra (Integrated course) or Internet Programming – Internet Programming Laboratory (Integrated course), scheduled for the first-year study plan and marked out of 30, the OFA will be deemed to be fulfilled.
Students who fail to pass the OFA by the deadline will enrol next a.y. to repeat the first year and in the course of that year will have to go through the OFA procedure again.
Students who already have a degree or university diploma, or who enrol in the restricted-access degree programme by a switch from another Bologna University degree programme or transfer from another university, must nonetheless sit the admission test abiding by the rules outlined in the Call.
Foreign students may enrol in the degree programme up to the maximum number stipulated in the Call.

Programme profile
