Additional Training Obligation (OFA)
The results of the admission test will be analyzed to verify the need to assign Additional Educational Obligations (OFA). This will be in relation to the level of average skills of the individual student classes in the so-called basic disciplines (biology, chemistry, physics and mathematics). Any OFAs assigned are considered to have been completed in taking the courses which are provided during the first two years of the degree. For the recovery of any OFA, training support initiatives will be organized to achieve an adequate degree of homogeneity of the class in relation to the training programs.
During enrolment, foreign students will be evaluated in the level of the Italian language. If the level of knowledge of the Italian written and spoken language is lower than a B2 level, the student is assigned additional OFAs to be done during the third year of the course. These additional OFAs are considered fulfilled with the passing of a test. For the recovery of Italian-speaking OFAs, appropriate courses and teaching materials are offered to students.
