Graduation extra-point

Who is entitled to automatic extra point for graduation?

Extra points are automatically given:

(a) one point, if the candidate graduates within the last graduation session of the last academic year of the normal duration of the Master programme (laurea in corso); this is normally the Winter session of the second academic year (i.e. March of the year of enrolment + 3);

(b) one point, if the candidate has successfully completed an international students’ mobility programme (Erasmus Plus, Erasmus Placement, other international mobility programmes).

The fulfilment of these requirements is automatically verified upon the candidate’s academic career. Therefore eligible candidates do not need to apply nor to provide documents/proof.

Who can request one optional extra point for graduation?

A candidate who has not obtained both extra points indicated above may request one optional extra point.

This extra point can be awarded to a candidate who has completed extracurricular experiences of particular distinction and educational content and has duly filed a specific, motivated and documented request to this effect.

Meritorious extracurricular activities include:

  1. Extracurricular internships or traineeships in Italy or abroad which are particularly relevant to the Master programme or of particular distinction;

  2. Participation in a national or international moot competition as a member of the University team, in areas related to the Master programme;

  3. Other experiences showing that the candidate otherwise deserves the extra point, having regard to the curricular and extracurricular experiences (see the Regulation or the Guidance document for more info).
