Students admitted

University of Ferrara
- maximum 3 students with the requirements to attend the first year of the Master of Science in Mathematics (Laurea magistrale)

Participating on this project, students will achieve two academic certificates, one in each university, which will be issued in two different academic qualifications and countries.

The three universities in agreement have established a list of exams from each plan of study that may be recognised to access the double degree program, indicating for each of them the number of ECTS and other specifications, in order to establish a clear and transparent equivalence.

Selections

Each university will be responsible for the selection of students participating in the double degree program:

- at the University of Ferrara, students who wish to participate in the call must apply, on the basis of the information available on the web page of the Mobility office (http://www.unife.it/studenti/internazionale/doppio-titolo/dipartimento-di-matematica-e-informatica-1). A Selection board evaluates the qualifications presented by the students, also interviewing them, in accordance with the approved selection criteria (academic merit, knowledge of Spanish language, motivational interview).
In addition, the selection process considers the academic documentation.
At the end, the home university sends the host university a full file of each student. The host university, after verifying the requirements, formalizes the registration.
