Verification and fulfilment of OFA (Additional Learning Requirements)

To access the degree programme, a basic understanding of Italian language and an understanding of English at level B1, at least, is required.

The list of linguistic certificates, cases of exemption for verification and the process of verification are described in the specific web page. On the contrary, they will be assigned an OFA to carry out by 30th September 2020.

Students that have enrolled in a subsequent year to their first, such as in cases of transfer, internal paths or matriculation with credit recognition, should have fulfilled the OLA by the time they are enrolled: they cannot take exams until they have fulfilled them.
