studentessa appena laureata con la tesi di laurea e un mazzo di fiori in mano

A university degree course concludes when students are awarded their degree certificates. The final stage of this process is normally:

  • writing a thesis or report - for undergraduate degree courses
  • writing and presenting a thesis or dissertation - for 5/6-year postagraduate degree andpostgraduate degree courses.

Graduation regulations govern:

  • how the event is carried out
  • how the final mark is calculated - including previous coursework and thesis, as well as other relevant factors.

A minimum mark of 66/110 is required to qualify for the Bachelor's or Master's degree certificate and the maximum mark is 110/110, although honours can also be awarded. In addition to honours, a distinction or dignity may be awarded by unanimous consent and in accordance with individual course regulations.


Lecturers can check the originality of theses and dissertations using university dedicated software.

Remote graduation exam for international students due to the impossibility of returning to Italy

The University of Turin, after the resolution of the Academic Senate number 3/2023/IV/15 of 19th December 2023, has established the possibility to request remote graduation exams for international students, non-EU citizens residing abroad and visa applicants, who have temporarily returned to their countries of origin and are subsequently unable to return to Italy, due to the denial of an entry visa or to objective difficulties and limitations on international travel caused by serious war crises in which the countries of origin are involved.


The request to take the degree exam online must be sent to the relevant Didactic manager's office with at least 15 days' notice, providing information and any documentation confirming the impossibility of returning to Italy.
The evaluation of the requests, after appropriate checks with the Internationalization offices, will be submitted to the President of the Study course for approval.
