Students may ask to be transferred to another degree programme of the University by presenting an application to the Rector from the 1st August to the 20th October of each year.
Upon hearing the joint teaching committees, the study programme councils recognise the formative credits acquired in other degree programmes, assessing them in accordance with its own study regulations, whether they regard disciplines involved in the scientific-disciplinary sectors, relevant to basic, specific, similar or integrative learning areas, or whether they are to be related to the different learning activities provided for, on the basis of what is set forth by the specific regulation. Any possible unrecognised credits shall appear on the complementary certificate to the degree diploma.
Students may ask to be transferred to another University by presenting an application to the Rector from the 1st July to the 20th October of each year, provided that they have paid the transfer tax in the established amount in accordance with the rules that regulate the course on which they wish to enrol. Students who request a transfer should not renew their enrolment. The application is considered valid upon its acceptance. From the date of its acceptance, the student cannot sit any exam or carry out any curricular career activity, unless he/she has withdrawn the application prior to forwarding the discharge papers. In any case, the deposited fee will not be reimbursed. If the transferred student returns to the Università degli Studi di Perugia without having carried out any curricular career activity, he/she may be re-integrated into his/her previous career, provided that the due fees and taxes have been paid.
Transfers from another University may be authorised by the 31st December of each year. In the event of serious matters the Rector may accept applications presented after the 31st December. Such transfers from another University are subject to the payment of due taxes and fees to the Università degli Studi di Perugia.
The transfer to capped enrolment degree programmes by students enrolled on other courses is subject to the rules defined by the competent structures and to the availability of places.
Recognition of non-formal and informal learning provides the possibility to achieve a higher education qualification to those who have not been able or who have not wished to do so in a traditional way, for instance, through other types of learning activities, work or life experience.
Higher education institutions should award credits for learning outcomes acquired outside the formal learning context as long as such learning outcomes satisfy the requirements of their qualifications. In the recognition of informal and non-formal learning, the number of credits awarded should be the same as the credits given to formal educational components with similar learning outcomes.
As with formal education, credits are awarded upon an assessment which verifies the achievement of learning outcomes. The evaluation criteria should be constructed so as to measure the achievement of the required learning outcomes at the appropriate level, without reference to specific learning activities. It is important that they become widely diffused in order that learners can access information regarding elements such as feedback on the results of the assessment or the possibility for learners to appeal.
Adopting procedures for the recognition of non-formal and informal learning helps strengthen the social dimension of higher education institutions, whose main aim is to provide easy access to learners from a range of non-traditional learning contexts.
