CODE 84510


The “Altre attività” (other activities) allow students to broaden their horizon and integrate the acquisition of additional knowledge and skills into disciplinary learning, useful for training and for entering the world of work.



The other activities that can be achieved according to a typology described in the Didactic Regulations of the course aim at enhancing communication and IT skills and abilities, related to transversal skills; for students of the Entertainment curriculum they specifically concern laboratories and internships carried out in institutions related to music, entertainment and the media.


Depending on the student’s free choice, participation in Further activities will allow:

  • to acquire transversal and broad knowledge with respect to the training course (participation in conferences, seminars, etc.)
  • to acquire extra-curricular skills and competences (participation in workshops)
  • to acquire skills and abilities in the field of foreign languages.
  • to acquire skills and abilities in the IT field.

Participation in laboratories and other professional activities (e.g. through the activation of an internship in a work, public or private context), contribute in particular to developing the student's ability to apply the knowledge and skills being acquired in the training.


The CdS recognizes the following activities:

  • Laboratories that have been activated by the Department or are recognized by the Course and are listed on the CdS website;
  • Erasmus or Cinda stays: 2 ECTS for 12 ECTS acquired abroad, 3 ECTS for 18 ECTS acquired abroad, regardless of length of stay.

  • Internships and traineeships approved by the Course and the Department for a total of three non-divisible CFUs earned in 75 hours. The criterion also applies to activities similar to internships and traineeships that take place as part of international mobility programs.
  • Certification of language skills beginning at level B1, issued by UniGe-accredited bodies or a suitable public and/or private institution in Italy or abroad, with certification of successful completion of the relevant verification. For a total of three non-divisible credits (note: the certification used for the language assessment test cannot be reused for the credits of other activities).
  • Participation in scientific initiatives (conferences, congresses, seminars, training courses, and so on) subject to the following conditions: 1) The activity must have previously been approved by the course of study; 2) the presence of a signature sheet registering your participation for the duration of the conference or seminar; 3) preparation of an articulated and detailed report on the work of the conference or seminar, which will be followed and supervised by the proposing teacher (where required).
  • Post-secondary diplomas issued by university or para-university institutes and by public bodies, certificates of courses of the same type (3 CFU not divisible) with proof of passing of the relative verification.
  • Civil Service certified and performed at legally recognized institutions (at least one year, for three CFU) and deemed relevant to the Degree Course by the Commission.
