In the computation of the expected workload for each exam, please note the total equivalence (1 CFU = 1 ECTS) between the Italian CFU (Credito Formativo Universitario) system and the European ECTS (European Credit Transfer and Accumulation System).

Grading System

Regarding the success of a exam and its corresponding grading, please note the different system between Italy and Europe. Incoming students planning to take some exams at Sapienza and then to come back to their own home institutions (for example, Erasmus incoming students) should refer to the home institution Grade Conversion Scale that will convert the Italian grading system, a 30-point scale divided in two: non passing (0 to 17), and passing grades (18 to 30 cum laude) into the home institution grading system.
