Final examination: modalities and deadlines

To graduate, you have to sit a final examination designed to verify that you have reached the education objectives set by the Degree Programme.

The final exam consists in the submission of a Thesis (original manuscript report) related to original experimental activities in the research fields that concern the Master Course. The thesis is discussed in front of a Commission designated by the Council of the Master Course. The experimental part that constitutes the basis for the thesis is carried on during the PROJECT (dissertation internship) and can be carried out in a structure of the University or in other external structures, in Italy or abroad. Unless otherwise agreed with the Degree Council, upon specific request, the Thesis Tutor is the Academic Tutor of the dissertation internship, chosen among Professors and Researchers of the Department or having contributed a teaching to the Degree Course ACS. The Tutor asserts the congruity of the Thesis topic within the purpose of the Master Degree. For the admission to the final exam, the student must have completed all the training credits of the Master course programme, except those reserved for the final exam.
Oral presentation and discussion take place in one of the three graduation sessions established for each academic year. The Degree Council appoints the Commissions for final exam and their Presidents. The Commissions are made up of at least 4 members, chosen amongst the Professors and Researchers contributing to the Master Degree, and includes the Tutor of the thesis under discussion. The Commission shall evaluate the candidate taking into account the curriculum and the completion of the final test. The rules for the award of the vote are established by the Degree Council and may be reviewed annually.

The amended rules will come into effect from the summer session of the next academic year.

The main criteria for final evaluation are the following:

- maximum 7 points awarded by the Commission included  the supervisor

The commission also considers the number of exams passed cum laude and the regularity of the student's course of study.
