Co-supervisor request and antiplagiarism that will be delivered by mail, complete in all its parts, at the Double Degree office to Mr. Federico Franceschini. The student will have to look for a second Italian supervisor, who will be informed about the progress of the student’s work and will also support him/her during the final discussion in front of the Degree Committee.
The DD students must put, in the Co-supervisor form, the name and mail of both supervisors, first and second.

All Double Degree students must undertake to deliver to the DD office an evaluation report of the thesis, if it is submitted before at home/host University, at least 15 days before italian graduation session. Without this home/host university evaluation report the student will not be admitted to the graduation session. This evaluation report may consist of a mark or a brief evaluation in the form of an analysis. The report or transcript or records with the master thesis grade has to be sent to:

As regards the conversion of the marks, this is the formula that will be applied: the marks of the exams got abroad will be converted in according to the conversion tables of marks established between partners. It is possible that the resulting conversion grade corresponds to a value range of marks of italian marks, in this case will be choosen the minimun or maximun value taking into account the overall performance of abroad studies.
It’s easy that the number of credits of single foreign exams doesn’t correspond to italian number of credits, and it’s likely may encounter the following three cases:

  • the number of credits of foreign exam is slightly lower than Italian exam to be converted, [e.g., 4,5 ECTS => 6 CFU]. It is possible to maintain this conversion credits ratio (if the total credit conversion is balanced [e.g. 35 ECTS => 35 CFU]) ;
  • the number of credits of foreign exam is lower than Italian exam to be converted, [e.g., 3 / 6 ECTS => 9 CFU]. In this case, the student has to merge more foreign exams. It will be calculated the weighted average of marks obtained on the foreign exams considered and the result will be converted into the Italian mark, in according to the conversion grade table established between partners;
  • the number of credits of the foreign exam is higher than that of the Italian exam to be converted, [e.g. 9 ECTS => 6 CFU]. In this case, and if necessary, the remaining credits of the foreign exam can be added to other foreign exams to convert the remaining Italian exams. In the case in which, at the end of the conversion, some extra foreign credits result, at the indisputable discretion of the commission that deals with the conversion, it will be possible to attribute some extra points among the votes already attributed. The conversion will be calculated according to the conversion table established between the partners.
