Extension of the exam session and final examination deadline to 15 June 2020

Due to the Covid-19 emergency, the exam session and final examination deadline for the 2018/19 a.y. has been extended to 15 June 2020 (Decree-Law No. 18 of 17 March 2020).

Who is eligible for extension

If you were unable to graduate in March due to issues related to the emergency, you can submit a graduation application for the extraordinary session, but only if you are enrolled regularly, “fuori corso” (past envisaged completion time for the degree course) or as a repeating student in the a.y. 2018/19 in the last year of a full-length degree programme.

You are only eligible for extension if your study plan was complete and you fulfilled all attendance requirements by the end of the a.y. 2018/19.

In detail:

  • for Bachelor degrees: if you are enrolled regularly, “fuori corso” (past envisaged completion time for the degree course) or as a repeating student in the a.y. 2018/19 in the third year and, by the end of the academic year, you included in your study plan all the learning activities planned in your degree programme in order to take the exams and graduate;

  • for Two year Master degrees: if you are enrolled regularly, “fuori corso” (past envisaged completion time for the degree course) or as a repeating student in the a.y. 2018/19 in the second year and, by the end of the academic year, you included in your study plan all the learning activities planned in your degree programme in order to take the exams and graduate;

  • for five-year or six-year Single cycle degrees: if you are enrolled regularly, “fuori corso” (past envisaged completion time for the degree course) or as a repeating student in the a.y. 2018/19 in the fifth or sixth year respectively and, by the end of the academic year, you included in your study plan all the learning activities planned in your degree programme in order to take the exams and graduate.

If you have to take exams in order to meet all the necessary requirements, please contact your contact teacher directly. If you did not take the language proficiency test, from 3 April 2020, on the University Language Centre website, you will find all the information you need to take the test.

Please note: the deadline of 15 June 2020 will not be extended for degree programmes concerning Health Professions and for the Single cycle degree in Conservation and Restoration of Cultural Heritage.

Who is not eligible for extension

You are not eligible for extension if:

  • you failed to meet attendance requirements by the end of the a.y. 2018/19;

  • you made changes to your study plan in the a.y. 2019/20 and took exams related to that study plan;

  • you did not have a complete study plan, so in the a.y. 2019/20 you had to make changes to include exams:
    - for Bachelor degrees: you are enrolled regularly, “fuori corso” (past envisaged completion time for the degree course) or as a repeating student in the a.y. 2018/19 in the third year, and in the a.y. 2019/20 you made changes to your study plan to include exams because you did not have the 180 university educational credits you needed to graduate;
    - for Two year master degrees: you are enrolled regularly, “fuori corso” (past envisaged completion time for the degree course) or as a repeating student in the a.y. 2018/19 in the second year, and in the a.y. 2019/20 you made changes to your study plan to include exams because in your study plan you did not have the 120 university educational credits you needed to graduate;
    - for Single cycle degrees: you are enrolled regularly, “fuori corso” (past envisaged completion time for the degree course) or as a repeating student in the a.y. 2018/19 in the fifth or sixth year (in the five-year or six-year degree programme respectively), and in the a.y. 2019/20 you made changes to your study plan to include exams because in your study plan you did not have the university educational credits you needed to graduate.

Please note: this is not an early session of the a.y. 2019/20. If you are enrolled in the a.y. 2019/20 in the last year of a full-length degree programme, you are not eligible for extension.

You are also not eligible for extension if you had enrolled regularly in the a.y. 2018/19 in the last year of a full-length degree programme and are now enrolled in the a.y. 2019/20 as a repeating student.
