Curricular requirements must be fulfilled prior to verification of individual preparation. 

You meet the curricular requirements if you graduated from UniGe in:

  • Naval Engineering
  • Naval Engineering - Livorno campus
  • Naval Engineering - La Spezia campus


If you graduated from UniGe with a recent degree (former DM 509) and your degree meets the curricular requirements, you should directly link to the Online Services.


If you are a UniGe graduate but your degree does not automatically meet the curricular requirements or you graduated from another university, you must:

  1. Link to the Online Service of UniGe
  2. Upload your career of studies (only for students from other universities), including the statement of exams taken with the indication, for each subject, of the disciplinary scientific sectors and the relevant CFUs for the verification of curricular requirements.
    . On this occasion you will have to choose the date on which you will present yourself for the Verification of Initial Preparation.
    N.B. Documentation must be uploaded within 10 days of the date you intend to attend.

The outcome of the verification of curricular requirements will be communicated to you prior to the scheduled date for Verification of Initial Readiness.

If you fail the verification of curricular requirements, you will not be able to take the initial preparation verification. In this case you will be suggested a "bridging career" to fill the highlighted curricular deficiencies.

If, on the other hand, you do not pass the initial preparation check, you will be able to take the test for a different Master's degree or submit to a later test.

N.B.If your bachelor's degree grade in Naval or Nautical Engineering, Italian or foreign, or title judged equivalent is at least 9/10 of the maximum or earned a final grade corresponding to the "A" or "B" classification of the ECTS system, you will not have to take the initial preparation check.

You can take the initial preparation test even if you have not yet graduated, as long as you have already passed all the exams and your career meets the curricular requirements.

In this case, after pre-registration, you need to log on to Unige's Online Services and choose the date on which you would like to take the initial preparation check.

N.B. Because you have not yet graduated, remember that you will not be able to take advantage of any exemption for the grade you earned.
