general information

General Information

If you want to sit an exam you MUST enrol online for it!

In order to enrol, you will be asked to complete the evaluation of the course. This is required by the Ministry and is part of the Quality Assurance Process of Italian universities. The evaluation is your chance to tell us if the course is well structured or not and if professor is doing a good job or not. It is completely anonymous and the data are aggregated, so do not be afraid to be honest: you will help us to improve!

If you  are not able to enrol for an exam please check this possible reasons:

  • the deadline (3 days before the exam) has expired
  • you have not certified the official teaching language
  • the exam is not in your “study career”
  • you have not paid your tuition fees

Should none of the above-mentioned reasons apply, please contact the Faculty Secretariat immediately!

exam sessions

Exam Sessions

The Academic Year is divided in two semesters:

  • 1st (October-January)
  • 2nd (February-June)

During the academic year there will be 3 exam sessions.

Winter session (December/January/February) 

  • 1st call for 1st semester courses
  • 3rd call for 2nd semester courses of the previous academic year

Summer session (May/June/July)

  • 1st call for 2nd semester courses
  • 2nd call for 1st semester courses

September Session

  • 2nd call for 2nd semester courses
  • 3rd call for first semester courses

The best strategy is to try the exam only when you feel prepared, so you do not waste one exam session. Also remember that positive grades are automatically registered and you cannot refuse a low grade: therefore, if you want to keep a good grade average, be sure to study well.

After the 3 exam sessions of the academic year have passed, you will have to study the content foreseen by the course of the new academic year (there might be changes in the syllabus, in the assessment or in the lecturer).

Academic Calendar

enrolment and cancellation

Enrolment and cancellation


You have to enrol online for each exam you want to sit: exams sat without enrolment are not valid. You will receive an e-mail when enrolments open (usually one month before each exam session).

The deadline for enrolment and cancellation of enrolment is THREE working days before the exam date (exam date and Sundays are not considered).

Cancellation of enrolment to exams

If you decide not to take an exam for which you are already enrolled, you must cancel your enrolment online.

The deadline for the cancellation of enrolment is the same as for enrolment (THREE working days before the exam date)


In this case you have to send an e-mail to the Faculty of Agricultural, Environmental and Food Sciences by the day the examination takes place. What is more you have to hand in a valid medical certificate, which explicitly identifies the days on which you were ill within a week after the exam date.
