Simultaneous enrolment in different courses

It is possible to enrol on two courses and obtain two degrees in the same timeframe.

What it consists of

From academic year 2022/23, it is possible to enrol simultaneously on two higher education courses as provided for by Italian law no. 33 of 12 April 2022.  

On 29 July 2022, Ministerial Decree no. 930 was published, which regulates the procedures to allow students to enrol twice at the same time.

On 2 August 2022, Ministerial Decree no. 933 was published, which regulates the provisions to allow simultaneous enrolment in two AFAM (Higher Education in Art and Music) courses or one AFAM course and one university course.

Which courses it applies to

It is possible to enrol simultaneously on a maximum of two courses, with both courses of study able to be at the same university or courses at different universities or institutions of higher education in art and music, including foreign ones. 

It is possible to enrol on

  • two 1st Cycle Degree programmes
  • two 2nd Cycle Degree programmes
  • one 1st Cycle Degree programme and one 2nd Cycle Degree programme
  • one 1st or 2nd Cycle Degree programme and one PhD course
  • one 1st or 2nd Cycle Degree programme and one Professional Master’s programme
  • one 1st or 2nd Cycle Degree programme and one non-medical specialisation course
  • two Professional Master’s programmes, provided that they are not the same Professional Master’s programme
  • one PhD course and one non-medical specialisation course
  • one PhD course and one medical specialisation course - in this case, Art. 7 of MD 226/2021 applies
  • Professional Master’s programme and one medical specialisation course
  • Professional Master’s programme and medical specialisation course.

If enrolment involves two 1st Cycle Degrees, 2nd Cycle Degrees, or Single cycle Degrees, these must not belong to the same class and must differ in at least two-thirds of their educational activities

To enrol for the various levels of degree courses, you must have the qualifications required by national and University regulations and, where necessary, to sit assessment tests in order to verify knowledge, curricular requirements and adequate personal competencies.

In the event that one of the two study courses is compulsorily attended, enrolment in a second course where attendance is not compulsory is permitted, with the exception of courses for which compulsory attendance is envisaged only for laboratory and internship activities.

Scholarships and exemptions

Right-to-study benefits are provided for a single enrolment. Total or partial exemption from student contributions is granted for both enrolments if the requirements set out in the current regulations are met.
