Teaching Vademecum

What is a CFU

A Credito Formativo Universitario (CFU) is the Italian equivalent of the European Credit Transfer System (ECTS). One CFU corresponds to an average of 25 hours of work, including classroom lectures, labs, projects and independent preparation.

What is the master's degree

A Master's degree course aims to provide you with advanced training for the pursuit of highly qualified activities.

To obtain a Master's degree, you must acquire 120 CFU, equivalent to 2 years of study.

You can only enter the Master's degree if you have obtained a graduate degree or an equivalent qualification (former university degree, university diploma - 3 years, direct school for special purposes - 3 years)
