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obtained abroad, or a four-year secondary school diploma and diploma for the relative supplementary year, or, where no longer active (e.g. teaching high school), will be assigned additional learning credits.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. Excellent knowledge of Italian.
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 these exams - Physics (I+II); Fundaments of Chemistry with Laboratory; or Mathematics (I+II) – scheduled for the first-year study plan, 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

The chief objective of the Degree Programme is to produce graduates who possess the basic expertise in chemistry to hold down a job requiring familiarity with the scientific method, ability to apply innovative methods and techniques and use complex apparatus. The grounding acquired will enable the graduate to keep abreast of developments in the subject, interact with professional trained in similar subjects, and go on to achieve a Master's degree. The teaching programme is modelled on the "Chemistry Eurobachelor" as well as on the Italian Chemistry Society "Core Chemistry" benchmark programme for Class L27 degree programmes.
