Grading system and credits recognition for incoming students

Since 1999 (Ministerial Decree no. 509/99), Italian university studies have been fully reformed so as to meet the objectives of the "Bologna process". The Italian University system is now organised in 3 cycles: the 1st cycle academic degree, that is the "Laurea" (Bachelor degree), grants access to the 2nd cycle the "Laurea Magistrale" (Masters degree), corresponding to the 2nd cycle and giving access to 3rd cycle doctorate programmes resulting in the degree called "Dottorato di Ricerca".

The European Credit Transfer System (ECTS) is used by Italian universities to evaluate and measure the workload of single courses, as well as entire qualifications. ECTS credits represent the total student workload (class time, individual study, exam preparation, practical work etc) needed to complete a course/module/degree. According to Italian legislation, one ECTS/ CFU credit is equivalent to 25 hours. Exams are graded using a grading scale of 30, where 18 is the minimum passing grade and 30 cum laude the highest grade.

For further information on the Italian Higher Education System, please visit: http://www.miur.it/guida/guide.htm

 

In order to do the recognition process in the Home University, the following formula can be used:

Voto = the final result

V = grade to be converted

Vmin = minimum grade to pass in the Home University

Vmax = maximum grade student can get for an exam in the Home University

Imin = 18 (which is the minimum in Italy) Imax = 30 (which is the maximum in Italy)

 

For the letters:

A = 30

B = 28

C = 26

D = 23

E = 18
