Second-cycle degrees

Second-cycle degree courses (Laurea magistrale) are open to graduates with a first-cycle or foreign equivalent degree and require a further 120 ECTS credits, which can be accumulated over an average of 2 years. Previous specific curricula in the first cycle are required for admission.

Such programmes aim at providing students with an advanced level of education for highly qualified work in specific areas, and graduates are awarded the qualification of Dottore Magistrale.

The corresponding qualification both in English-speaking countries and in the European Higher Education Area is a Master's degree.

The laurea magistrale grants access to research doctorate programmes.
