Please note also that:
- Courses NOT available for Exchange Students are “Conoscenza lingua straniera” or “Ulteriori conoscenze linguistiche” and “Prova finale di laurea”
- The Italian Language Course offered by Centro Linguistico di Ateneo - CLA is not an academic exam and does not provide ECTS credits or mark, so it cannot be added to your Learning Agreement and it won't appear in your final transcript of records;
- Exchange students can choose exceptionally courses s from just another one school (e.g.: Scuola di scienze politiche, Scuola di economia e management, etc.…) but they must not overcome the 40% of the total number of courses selected in the learning agreement.
- Once filling in your Study plan form please remember to include the alphanumerical codes (ex. Course: RESTAURO, code B016699), so that it is easier to register you once all the pre-enrolment procedure is completed. Usually we recommend getting maximum 30 ECTS for 1 semester and maximum 60 ECTS for full year exchange.
