English OFA and OFA Test are assigned to students who enroll in a Laurea (equivalent to three-year Bachelor of Science) if any weakness is found in his/her basic education. The student is required to recover these weaknesses (through the fulfilment of OFA) during the academic year and according to the methods described in the following pages.
Students enrolled in English-language degree courses in Civil Engineering (international track), and Architectural Design (international track) must meet the English OFA additional educational obligations by submitting one of the certifications shown in the table on the students’ page for the English-language Laurea Triennale (equivalent to Bachelor of Science) programmes to the Registrar’s Office.
The TENG English section of the TOL, for students of the English-language degree course in Civil Engineering, and the ARCHED test, for students of the English-language degree course in Architectural Design, is insufficient to certify the required level of knowledge.
Attention: the assignment of OFA implies restrictions in the compilation of the Study Plan. These restrictions remain active until the student recovers the OFA. If the OFA are fulfilled after the deadline provided for submitting the Study Plan, the student can still submit one with limitations.
The Italian OFA is awarded to all international students admitted:
- to all English-language Master's Degree courses
- to the Laurea (equivalent to three-year Bachelor of Science) in Architectural Design - EN
- to the Laurea (equivalent to three-year Bachelor of Science) in Civil Engineering – EN
Foreign students will therefore have to demonstrate their knowledge of the Italian language before sitting the degree examination and completing their studies.
