The evaluation of the different discipline areas of Italian universities concerns both undergraduate and graduate programmes and is based on two sets of indicators: student progress (number of students who continue from 1st to 2nd year; “on-track” students; number of students who graduate on time) and internationalisation (student mobility after graduation; number of universities involved in student mobility programmes; percentage of foreign students).

The five-year degree programmes in Law and the master’s degree in Psychology reached the top position, the degree programmes in the science discipline area (physics, computer science and mathematics) achieved the second positon, and undergraduate degrees in social and political sciences, languages, and economics-statistics placed third.
