Academic calendar and exams sessions

Academic calendar

The academic calendar contains:

  • administrative deadlines (enrollment periods, tuition fees payment, request to graduate, etc.);
  • learning deadlines (lesson periods, exam sessions, graduation sessions, etc.);
  • university closures

The calendar, although referring to a single academic year, may also contain some deadlines relating to the previous year (eg. autumn/special graduation session) or successive years (eg. pre-enrollment in limited admission programmes).


Exam sessions scheme

The academic calendar is divided into 2 semesters, which are organised into 2 terms each.
Courses may last one period (5 weeks + 1 for extra/rescheduled lessons) or one semester (15 weeks).

Different exam sessions are scheduled during the academic year and each course includes at least 4 different dates in which the related exam can be taken.
Students are allowed to take all the exam dates included in this calendar, with the exception of the exams concerning the language of the Bachelor's and Master's degree programmes of the linguistic area, for which students will be required to choose one of the exam dates available in the the exam session.

The organisation of the exam sessions depends on the course scheduling (that is the semester or term the course will take place) and is described in the chart here below.
To look for the exam schedule go to your Bachelor's or Master's degree website and follow the path Study > Exams.
