Single courses

Depending on their background and aspirations, asylum-seekers who have not yet obtained the refugee status can enroll to single courses (chosen within one of our programmes).

People can register to single courses if they are not yet enrolled in any Programme at the University of Parma.

  • For single courses offered within BA programmes, a five-year secondary school diploma is required.
  • For single courses offered within MA programmes, a Bachelor degree certificate is required.

Registration to singles courses is valid for an academic year. People can enroll to single courses for a maximum of 30 CFU (University Credits) for each academic year (except for lower limits established by specific Programmes).

Please note that courses in the Health area (Medicine, Nursing etc.) cannot be chosen as single courses. 

Degree courses


Refugee and people with international protection can enroll to one of our degree course. When they obtain international protection, also asylum-seekers who took single courses will be able to enroll to our programmes and the credits they got in single courses will be recognized in the related first cycle or second cycle degree course.

Please note that most fisrt cycle (bachelor) courses are in Italian and require the knowledge of the Italian language (B1 level).


Every year Unipr finances some scholarships (and related catering services) for students holding international protection. Scholarships are awarded through the general calls for applications for Er.Go scholarships. In order to obtain the scholarships, refugees must submit their application following the regular procedures and within the deadlines set by Er.Go for the scholarships.

The Er.Go Call is usually published in June.
