Course calendar

The Course is divided into 12 semesters with a minimum of 12 weeks of lectures each, including one or two weeks dedicated to seminars also held by students on topics set by lecturers. The last week of the semester is dedicated to revision of the lecture’s topics. In addition, professors are strongly encouraged to hold optional seminars with the purpose of clarifying key concepts or for topics requiring an in-depth knowledge.

  • The first semester starts on October 1st and ends on February 28th;
  • The second semester begins on March 1st and ends on May 31st.

Attendance to teaching activities (lectures and traineeships) is mandatory.
