Admission to the final examination

To be admitted to the final exam, each PhD student must obtain a total of 40 credits during the third year:

  • 10 credits for attending educational activities both internal and external to the Faculty, amounting to not less than 90% of the compulsory lessons of the third year on the basis of a report presented by mid-September by the PhD student and previously approved by the curriculum delegate;
  • 30 credits for the elaboration of the PhD final thesis approved by the tutor with a motivated opinion.

A further 20 credits are awarded following a final successful dissertation of the PhD thesis.

The Academic Board, having acquired the motivated opinion of the tutor on the admission of the PhD student to the final dissertation, and having verified the acquisition of the necessary credits, will express an opinion on the admission itself.

The PhD student will send a copy of the Thesis together with an evaluation on the activities carried out during the three-year period in electronic format to the Secretariat of the PhD Course (within a deadline decided annually by the Board) to submit them to the evaluation of the external referees appointed by the Acedemic Board. Following the referral procedure, the final thesis will be sent (at least one month before the date set for the final examination) to the members of the Commission appointed by the Academic Board.
