Recognized activities

Other internal activities

Some of these activities are organized within your Course, such as the training internships and orientation (promoted by the Tutoring and Orientation Committee) and the Courses in Computer Science.

Also fall under Other Activities internally, all seminars and laboratories that allow you to gain useful experience in starting work.


You may include in your study plan, as "other activities", additional language knowledge if you pass an examination of an extra foreign language taught in the Department, besides the Language A and B provided in the standard curriculum.

You must include in your study plan the "Third language" teachings with the code related to 6 CFU (e.g. Arabic Language I code 55868, 6 CFU). Under no circumstances can the third foreign language included in the study plan be validated in the manner provided for "other external activities" (see below).

If you want to allocate "other" credits to the third language, we recommend that you contact the Study Plans Committee, which will help you evaluate how to do so.

If you have spent a period of study abroad at another university and have passed proficiency exams for an appropriate number of CFUs (set annually by the course council based on the guidance of the national Erasmus agency), you can apply for your stay to be recognized as Another Activity up to a maximum of 6 CFUs.

Other external activities

Language courses belong to this category:

  • different from those included in your study plan
  • frequented at Italian and foreign public institutions (assessable at the discretion of the "Recognition of other external activities" committee on the basis of the documentation submitted, which in any case must include a certificate of passing an exam or acquiring a level of proficiency)

Language acquisitions also include courses attended during your Erasmus stay (appropriately included in the learning agreement). Remember, however, that the languages studied must be different from those included in your study plan and that you must pass the relevant exam.

Temporary work activities with tasks that explicitly require mastery of skills provided by the courses and, in particular, the written and oral use of the languages studied can be recognized.

You may obtain credits for Other Activities if you have participated, for a total commitment of 30 hours (1 CFU), in:

  • conferences
  • seminars

of proven cultural authority, organized by the University or public or private institutions.

You will have to write and submit a report on the topics covered or the performance of activities related to the event (e.g., interpreting activities).

N.B.To check the relevance of the topics covered, we recommend that you consult in advance the committee "Recognition of other external activities".
