What to do after enrollment  

Study Plan

Presentation of the study plan is mandatory. This can be done by logging into the Online Services and selecting "Study Plan - Presentation".

  • Students who are enrolling for the first time in a three-year Laureamay not have to submit a Study Plan because it is defined directly by the School they belong to. To find out for which courses the Study Plan is submitted automatically, you must contact the School in question.
  • For students enrolled in a Laurea Magistrale, the submission of a Study Plan is always mandatory.

The number of university credits (CFU) inserted in the study plan affects the fees and contributions that you must pay with the second fee instalment.

The Study Plan must be submitted on an annual basis (i.e. it must include all the first and second semester courses you intend to take).

If you enrol in a Laurea Magistrale only in the second semester, then the Study Plan may be submitted for that period only ( i.e. you may include just the new courses for the second semester) .

The deadline for submitting the study plan varies, based on the School. If you do not submit the study plan in time, you will be charged a €100 fine to be paid with the second fee instalment.

As regards the textbooks, we suggest you wait for specific instructions from the lecturers at the start of each course.
