Lecture attendance

Class attendance is not mandatory but is strongly recommended. Furthermore, with a view to innovative and experiential teaching, participation in some laboratory activities, in the field and in study groups envisaged by particular courses is essential for the evaluation and attribution of grades.

Many students find that attending lectures regularly is the easiest and quickest way of completing the degree programme.

If you are enrolled in the first year, get off on the right foot! University marks a big change in the way you study and are assessed. Getting the right pace is important to avoid finding that you have already fallen behind in the acquisition of your education credits (CFUs) at the end of the first year.

Here are a few good reasons to attend lectures:

  1. A teacher's guidance and support is essential to enrich and complete the learning process. Learning is not about studying passively, but about unleashing your potential through interaction.
  2. During the entire education process, you grow and improve and develop your projects by comparing and discussing with other people. You will have the opportunity to collaborate with the other students in your degree programme, organise study groups, exchange notes on the various disciplines, share experiences and strategies to prepare for exams. A precious opportunity worth experiencing.
  3. While you are in class, you are studying; therefore, you are constantly learning without skipping a beat!
  4. It is essential to take active part in all practical disciplines, such as laboratory work.
  5. If you are a working student, read the information about how to extend your study period (flexible curriculum)

Courses that include face-to-face activities essential for assessment:

First Year of Course


Second Year of Course


RICERCA SCIENTIFICA SUBACQUEA (elective teaching, field activities)

Finally, the degree thesis must be of an experimental nature and active participation in the preparation activities must be agreed with the supervisor. For further information, consult the course web guides and possibly contact the respective teachers.
