Requirements

To benefit from the above-mentioned subsidies, the following requirements should be met:

  • completion of operations described under point 1, 2, and 3 of the above-mentioned procedure;
  • if you are enrolled in a bachelor’s degree programme you must not have another degree, either under the old system (even prior to DM 509/1999) or under the new system, whether obtained in Italy or abroad, or a diploma issued by the Conservatory/Fine Arts Academy, or a three-year first-level diploma issued under Italian law no. 508/1999;
  • if you are enrolled in a master’s degree programme, you must not have another degree obtained prior to DM 509/1999, specialist degree, or master’s degree, obtained either in Italy or abroad, a diploma issued by the Conservatory/Fine Arts Academy, or a two-year second level diploma issued under Italian law no. 508/1999;
  • you must not still be enrolled in a degree programme under the old system prior to DM no. 509/1999;
  • you must have completed the minimum credit requirements (credits effectively registered in your student’s record book) between 11 August 2020 and 10 August 2021 as indicated below:

Bachelor’s degree programmes

Year* Full-time students – ECTS Part-time students – ECTS
1 0 0
2 at least 10 ECTS/year 0
3 at least 25 ECTS/year at least 5 ECTS/year
4 at least 25 ECTS/year at least 5 ECTS/year
5 - at least 12 ECTS/year
6 - at least 13 ECTS/year

Master’s degree programmes

Year* Full-time students – ECTS Part-time students – ECTS
1 0 0
2 at least 10 ECTS/year 0
3 at least 25 ECTS/year at least 5 ECTS/year
4 - at least 5 ECTS/year

(*) “Year” refers to the number of years of enrolment from the first year of matriculation in any University, as in the case of transfer from another University or Department.

For the purpose of calculating merit for obtaining benefits, any years of suspension from studies are not counted, except in cases where the suspension has been determined by disciplinary measures. Furthermore, credits coming from:

  • exams/placements relative to previous studies that ended with a qualification or following withdrawal/loss of student status or from other activities, including exams taken prior to matriculation for which a credit exemption was obtained;
  • exams taken as single courses prior to matriculating in your current programme;
  • incomplete exams (for example, if you did not take all parts of a multiple-part exam).

After six years of enrolment (for bachelor’s degree programmes) or four years of enrolment (for master’s degree programmes), part-time students will be considered as full-time students and will be subject to the same merit requirements.

Students who matriculated as part-time students and subsequently switched to full-time status should calculate their years of attendance (necessary for the calculation of academic merit as shown in the table above) as follows: two academic years attended with part-time status are counted as one full-time year and a single “part-time year” will also be considered as equivalent to one full-time year. Similarly, students who matriculated as full-time students and subsequently switched to part-time status should count every academic year attended with full-time status as two “part-time years”.
