A student has the right to pursue studies leading to a first-cycle polytechnic degree or a second-cycle polytechnic degree in accordance with the degree programme concerned and its syllabus and the requirements stipulated in the degree (L 932/2014). 

Education leading to a Bachelor's degree

A student must complete the studies within the time at most exceeding one year, the extent determined for it (regulated time + 1 year) (932/2014).

Enrolment is binding.

The student loses his/her right to study when he/she has not:

  • enrolled in the statutory manner
  • completed his/her studies in the statutory time

Education leading to a Master’s degree
