GUIDES TO THE UNIVERSITY
Single courses for visiting students
In addition to traditional lessons, teaching for mainly MSc courses may also include case study discussions, practical exercises for which students are asked to prepare beforehand and active class participation. Teachers can also assign individual and/or groups assignments, if necessary assisted by a tutor.
Student workload is expressed in credit points. Each credit point corresponds to an average of 8 hours of classroom teaching activities. With reference to such activities include:
As for the innovations in the learning methods on use, using the computer is a compulsory condition to attend the lessons of some courses, therefore each student should be equipped with a personal laptop PC. For further info, see paragraph 1.7.1. Student's personal laptop computer.

Class attendance at lectures is not compulsory. However, it is strongly recommended, as it meets the proposed educational model designed to favor gradual learning, the active participation of students in class, and the creation of a dialog between students and teachers.
Some courses may include attendance recording. Depending on the student's attendance, there may be different assessment methods for attending and non-attending students: when attendance is a decisive element for assigning the “attending” status to a student, the only method available for recording participation is through Attendance, the University online procedure.

The educational activities are organised into class groups.
Each class group of compulsory courses is assigned a specific classroom.
All students belonging to the same class group follow the lessons in their assigned classroom and have the same teachers.
To facilitate educational activities planning (class group numbers and classroom capacity) students cannot change their assigned class group. The class groups remain the same for the entire academic year.
An e-learning class group for a very limited number of elective courses will be activated. In the e-learning class groups, traditional educational activities in class are replaced, by participation in specific on-line activities, both asynchronous and synchronous.
