Transferable skills

Acquiring transferable skills provides students with the basic knowledge, abilities and qualities required to translate competences into suitable behaviour for organizational purposes.

Transferable skills of the University of Bologna a.y. 2023/24

The list of transferable skills for the 2023/24 a.y. is available within the Course unit catalogue.

In 2023/24 a.y. the University will offer many courses introduced over the past years, including Information Literacy, Creative Thinking, Project Management, Sustainable Development and Climate Change, Global Citizenship, Data Literacy. Activities are held both in Italian and in English.

Who can enrol

All students regularly enrolled in the 2023/24 a.y. in a First Cycle, Single Cycle, or Second Degree Programme can access the transferable skills course units that have been identified as being consistent with the curriculum of their degree programme. Transferable skills can be included only in the year in which the course structure diagram allows students to receive credits for elective learning activities.

How to enrol

You may include learning activities in your curriculum, within your elective credits (letter D), directly by filling in the study plan online, from 9 October 2023.
Some learning activities are identified by a number (1, 2, 3, 4) that refers to their edition; these are replicas of the same activities, therefore, if you are interested in including them in your curriculum you must do so only once.

The course schedules are being finalised and will be available in the relevant webguides.

All courses have limited places and are assigned on a first come, first served basis to the students who include them in their study plan first. Attendance for some of these learning activities is compulsory for 70% of the hours (this is mentioned in the online programme). Attendance must be accumulated in the year in which the teaching activities are included in the study plan.

A counting system prevents students from adding the activity once places are no longer available (the counting system books the place at the time the study plan is closed).
