Credits, Assessment and Grading Scale


The italian credits CFU (Crediti Formativi Universitari) are ECTS compatible, so you can consider that  1 CFU = 1 ECTS.


Almost all exams at the Department of Psychology are oral, but often there is a written pre-exam (called Esonero) that can be a multiple choice test, a test with open questions or a composition.

For every course there are three sessions throughout the year during which you can sit exams. 

You will have to sign up for the exam at least one week in advance. 
The procedure is in italian and at the following link you have a step by step guide that explains you how to register online for exams (Appelli)

The calendar of the exams is posted on the bulletinboard of the Punto Informativo at Palazzo Badini, via Verdi 10, or on the Website, in the section Appelli.

In our Department all courses are taught in Italian. However, some professors provide Erasmus students with an English/other languages bibliography. 

As lectures and assessment are in Italian we strongly reccomend students to attend an Italian course for foreigners.

Important notice on examinations: unlike other universities in Europe, Italian universities require the student's attendance during the grade registration process. Grade registration is done immediately after the student has sat through the relevant "appello" (examination session). No grades can be officially registered otherwise.


In Italy, university grading scale goes from 18 (sufficient) up to 30 and "30 e lode" (excellent). 
The minimum pass grade is 18. Lode (magna cum laude) is awarded for exceptionally good performance.

At the end of your studies at the University of Turin you have to contact the International Mobility Office of the University of Turin to formally conclude the Erasmus period

The International Mobility Office will give you the certificate of stay, the transcript of records and, if you have passed the final exam, a certificate of the Erasmus Italian Language Course. 

In the Department of Psychology all courses are taught in Italian, however some teachers provide students with an English/other languages bibliography. You can choose to study english/other languages or regular bibliography.

For your safety, we recommend to check bibliography with the teacher.
