The Board will assess your performance using your curriculum as a reference. During the dissertation discussion, you may use slides and the Commission may ask you in-depth questions on methods, results and any developments of your work.

1) Graduation session

The defense of the final thesis entails the discussion of a dissertation that is written under the guidance of a supervisor. Usually, the session covers more than one day. Students are generally informed about the exact date of their defense and the composition of the Graduation Board one week in advance through their institutional e-mail address. This piece of information is also available at www.studenti.unibo.it in the section called “Graduation”.

2) Application

The application for the graduation session is available 20 days before the deadline. A graduation fee of €132 is due at the time of the application for the graduation session. If you decide not to graduate within the session you have chosen, you have to send an e-mail to the Registrar Office (Segreteria Studenti) at segecosta@unibo.it from your institutional e-mail address. Thus, the Registrar Office will cancel your reservation and allow you to book forthcoming sessions. In this case, no further fees are due within the same academic year

The title of your thesis – as previously agreed with your supervisor – has to be specified in your application. Please remind that this title will be reported in the official degree certificates.

Candidates who cancelled a previous reservation can book another graduation session within the given deadlines. In this case, no additional graduation fee is due within the same academic year.

3) Requirements fulfillment

Candidates have to:

  • Pay all due fees and/or taxes. The Registrar Office verifies the fulfillment of the payments of fees and taxes. Candidates are contacted at their institutional e-mail addresses in case of anomalies. In case of taxes that happen to be due after the aforementioned deadline candidates should fulfill the mandatory requirements within the deadline anyway (i.e. the fee related to integration for ERGO students).
  • Pass all the exams included in their study plan. All exams you have passed throughout your career – which are part of your study plan – should be registered. The Registrar Office will contact candidates through their institutional e-mail addresses in case of anomalies.
  • Fill in the “AlmaLaurea” online form. Candidates will find the appropriate link to Alma Laurea during the completion of their application (successful procedures will be acknowledged by the system about 2 hours later).

4) Upload of the final thesis

Candidates have to upload their thesis in pdf format (max 30 MB) in the appropriate section of their application. It is not possible to upload a thesis after the deadline. Candidates who do not manage to upload it within the required terms are not allowed to graduate in the chosen session.

Candidates should check that the title of their thesis as indicated in the application is consistent with the title they have indicated in the pdf file. The title of the thesis can be modified within the upload deadline. Please remember that the indicated title will be included in degree certificates.

5) Approval of the final thesis

Your supervisor will approve the final dissertation within 3 days since the upload deadline. Please check the state of approval of your thesis and contact your supervisor if needed.

Degree diploma and certificates

Students will receive their diploma directly at the address they have indicated in www.studenti.unibo.it for communication purposes. Please check carefully the address you have indicated within your application and remember to modify it if needed.

Students can get their degree certificates on www.studenti.unibo.it.
