Title application procedure

The online application for obtaining the title is active. Masters students must connect to the link with their university credentials and follow the instructions contained in the guide attached below.

  • regular enrolment in the academic year (regular enrolment in the second year for two-year masters)
  • student career (be up to date with the payment of all necessary contributions)

After submitting the application, the master student must upload the final thesis, in PDF/A format, at the same link of the application, following the instructions contained in the guide below.

Please note that students attending postgraduate courses, after completing the application procedure for obtaining the qualification, will not be able to modify the data relating to the authorization of the disclosure of their personal and career data to third-party companies. This data, selected during the compilation of the title application, will therefore be considered definitive.
