note1 - taking into account the resolution of the Pedagogical Council of 12th September 2013, which is still in force in accordance with information given by the Organisational Unit, the registration can include a maximum of 18 ECTS credits of re-registration in a semester, but the total of 24 ECTS credits per year cannot be exceeded.

note2 - possibility of extended ECTS credits limits resulting from the transition of the Integrated Master’s Degree Courses to the 1st and 2nd Cycle of Studies.

note3 - the part-time registration is applied in the whole University to the cycles of studies organised in semesters: if it is a semester and part-time registration, the maximum limit number is only 15 ETCS credits.

n.a. - not applicable to the situation.

Can you register for more than 60 new ECTS credits?

You can register for new curricular units up to a maximum of 75 ECTS credits if in the academic year in which you enrol and register you are also a finalist student.

This situation happens, for example, after a change of course/institution, readmission or access by means of a Bachelor’s Degree obtained before the Bologna Process.     

You can register for new curricular units up to a maximum of 84 ECTS credits if you meet all the following conditions:
  1. you completed all the curricular units for which you had registered in the previous academic year, with a minimum of 60 ECTS credits, and
  2. the weighted average of all the curricular units until the end of that academic year is an A in the European scale of comparability (accessible by means of the Record at Inforestudante, in the details of each assessment).

What is the European Scale of Comparability of Classifications?

It is a relative scale based on percentiles, divided in five classes of positive classifications, identified by letters from A to E, which correspond to the percentiles 10, 35, 65, 90 and 100 respectively, of the best students who complete a course and a negative class (F) which corresponds to the students who fail to complete a course.
