If you are enrolled in a Bachelor's or Master's degree programme at another Italian University and you want to continue your studies at Politecnico di Torino, you may ask to transfer to PoliTO.
Before starting any transfer process at your current university, you should consider two different options:
- transfer (congedo): this option is suggested if you have already passed some exams for which you intend to request credit transfer. In this case, the year of your first enrolment is the year when you enrolled in the Italian university system for the first time (years spent at your current university are calculated for your learning path at Politecnico); this is the mandatory option for Non-Italian students with a study residence permit.
- withdrawal from studies (rinuncia agli studi): this option is suggested if you have not taken any exam yet or just a few of them. After withdrawing from your current university, you will be able to enrol as a first-year student at Politecnico di Torino (years spent at your current university are not calculated for your learning path at Politecnico). N.B: this option is NOT VALID for Non-Italian students with a study residence permit, because it would invalidate the reason for which the permit was given and would then require new study visa.
We remind you that:
- if you transfer to Politecnico from another university you must earn a minimum of 60 credits including the Final Project at Politecnico di Torino in order to get your Bachelor’s degree;
- if you transfer to Politecnico from another university you must earn a minimum of 50 credits (excluding the thesis credits) at Politecnico di Torino in order to get your Master’s degree;
- transfers are possible between Italian universities only. If you are a student who comes from a non-Italian university, you must first get admission for a Bachelor or Master's Degree and then apply for credit transfer ( by Recruitment and Admissions Unit)
