At the end of the First Levele Degree program, students are required to write a thesis under the supervision of a professor. Few days before the official graduation date, students discuss their work in front of a committee made up of professors belonging to areas close to the topic of the theses. On the day of the official graduation, after the final committee decides the grades of the candidates, an official ceremony takes place.

Note on "Redazione di un testo scientifico"

Students are required to pass a test called "Redazione di un testo scientifico" ("Writing a scientific text"). After the student completes the application for graduation, this exam is automatically recorded on Uniweb by the professor in charge (the director of the degree program), with no need for the student to make an explicit request.
