A degree program is composed of a number of mandatory and optional teaching and learning activities. Each of them corresponds to a certain number of credits. One credit corresponds to 25 hours of student work. The workload of a full-time student during one academic year is sixty credits. Credits are gained by passing examinations. In the Italian grading system the minimum pass mark is 18 out of 30 points and the top mark is 30 cum laude.
A first-cycle degree program (called Laurea triennale) leads to a Bachelor-level degree. A second-cycle degree program (Laurea magistrale) leads to a Master-level degree. Some programs leading to a Master-level degree last longer: they start at undergraduate level and take 5 or 6 years to complete. These are called Lauree magistrali a ciclo unico (Single-cycle Master degrees).
In order to take a first-cycle degree students have to acquire 180 credits in 3 years and to take a single-cycle degree they have to acquire 300 or 360 credits in 5 or 6 years, depending on the requirements of the individual program.
