Graduating in Humanities

To be awarded a bachelor's or master's degree are provided three sessions per year:

  • Summer session
  • Autumn session
  • Winter session

In the Deadlines and calendars paragraph are available the dates for each session and all necessary steps to sustain the final exam.

Students who graduate by the third session of academic year need not pay the first instalment for next academic year.

To be admitted to the final exam, students must apply online for graduation, respecting session deadlines.

The Graduation fee amounts to 116 Euros (including a 16 Euro revenue stamp) to be paid through one of the following procedures:

  • by credit card during the online enrolment procedure
  • in a bank or at the Post Office using the MAV (notice of payment) form printed at the end of the online enrolment procedure, accessible through Unimia (online services, Registrar services, payments) by the deadline indicated on the form, or the candidate will not be allowed to sit the exam.

Students must fill in the graduand questionnaire by the deadlines established for each exam session or they will not be allowed to sit the exam, as established by the Academic Senate (resolution of 16 September 2008).

The survey may be accessed only once the application for graduation has been submitted.

Each application is valid for a single exam session.

Students who forfeit an exam must promptly notify the Registrar through the Infostudenti Service. Students must submit another application through the online procedure, indicating the newly chosen exam session.

Once paid, the graduation fee is valid for the new session also. Postponements are not allowed.

Avviso sessione autunnale straordinaria A.A. 2019/2020

Come da Decreto rettorale sulle misure straordinarie per la didattica del 31 luglio, le sedute di laurea triennali si svolgeranno con la commissione riunita in forma telematica e consisteranno nella valutazione dell’elaborato redatto da ciascun candidato, senza la discussione con il candidato stesso. 

La commissione al termine delle valutazioni degli elaborati comunicherà il punteggio ottenuto ai candidati tramite messaggio di posta elettronica.

Nel momento della pubblicazione del voto di laurea su Unimia, lo studente avrà concluso formalmente il proprio percorso di studi triennali, conseguendo il titolo corrispondente.

La cerimonia di proclamazione dei laureati triennali si svolgerà il 6 novembre ore 14.30 in diretta live su MSTeams. I laureati triennali verranno informati sui dettagli della cerimonia di proclamazione attraverso messaggio di posta elettronica.

Come da Decreto rettorale sulle misure straordinarie per la didattica del 31 luglio le sedute di laurea magistrali si svolgeranno in presenza nelle giornate del 15 e 16 ottobre 2020. Al fine di poter condurre la discussione della tesi, gli studenti dovranno essere presenti negli orari e nei giorni in cui le commissioni svolgeranno i lavori, secondo l’ordine indicato nel calendario che verrà pubblicato nella pagina Laurearsi in Studi umanistici > Calendari di laurea. La comunicazione del voto di laurea avverrà alla fine della discussione. Si ricorda, come da circolare, che per garantire il rispetto delle condizioni di sicurezza il numero degli accompagnatori è consentito solo al massimo di due persone.

La cerimonia collettiva di proclamazione dei laureati magistrali in presenza potrà svolgersi solo quando la situazione sarà completamente normalizzata.
