Welcome to the University of Macerata
One of the oldest Institutions of higher education in Italy
1. THE UNIVERSITY OF MACERATA
1.1 A LONG TRADITION
The University of Macerata was founded in 1290. About eight centuries of social and
personal history have rolled by, and through this time thousands of girls and boys became
ruling class members, professionals, entrepreneurs, educators.
We can surely say that a bit of Italian, European and international history was built thanks to
the all-times graduates from Macerata.
1.2 MACERATA AND ITS TERRITORY
Coming to study in Italy offer a unique cultural experience for students from all over the world
and Macerata, on the Eastern side of Central Italy, has much to offer. It is a medium-sized
town (45.000 inhabitants) standing in the Province of Macerata which lies in the centre of the
Marche region between the sea and the mountains, surrounded by soft rolling hills. The area is
characterised by its excellent quality of life, due to the province’s clean air, parks, and to its
peaceful yet lively atmosphere that seems to be present in all of the cities and towns dotting
the landscape around. Macerata’s location is ideal for reaching all that the province has to
offer. The Adriatic Sea Coast, ski resorts, and the National Park of The Sibillini Mountains are
all relatively nearby the city.
The Province of Macerata is notable for its employment rate and the great number of small
and medium-sized businesses. Many companies in the Province are international leaders in
various fields including footwear, electronics, lighting technology, food products, furniture, toys
and leather goods. The Province is also of great interest from an artistic and architectural point
of view. It is rich with churches, abbeys, historic palaces, and museums that recall the tales of
different historical periods and the important people who are linked to our land. Moreover, the
theatre and outdoor opera house (the Sferisterio) each year welcomes the tourists with a rich
theatre and opera season featuring internationally famous artists and shows. The city of
Macerata offers plenty of ways to enjoy oneself, with several bars, restaurants and pubs
throughout the historic centre. These places are popular gathering spots for many university
students and young people.
1.3 THE CURTAIN RAISES
Fun, cultural events, sport, shows and happenings are on all year round, for everybody.
Three big events particularly have drawn the attention on this town, in Italy and in Europe:
the opera season MacerataOpera and the singer-songrwriter song festival Musicultura (both
taking place in the spectacular set of the Arena Sferisterio, unique in its way) and the volley
ball season with the Lube Volley team, national champion.
The University of Macerata is a partner of the Musicultura festival (the next one is the 19th
edition). The university, through this music contest, gives the students the possibility to work
as members of the editorial staff and of the jury. We are never behind the scenes. The
University of Macerata has been for years official sponsor of the volley ball team Lube Volley.
Sport, young people and education together play a good team game.

1.4 ORGANIZATION OF THE UNIVERSITY SYSTEM
THREE-YEAR DEGREES AND SPECIALISED/ADVANCED DEGREES
With the Ministerial Decree no. 270 of October 2004 the Ministry of Education brought in
extensive reforms of the Italian University system so that there now exist two levels of degree
(laurea).
•
•
the first level degree is the Laurea Triennale obtained at the end of a three year course.
It prepares students for intermediate job positions in the labour market.
the second level degree is the Laurea Magistrale, a post-graduate degree obtained after
a two-year course. It prepares students for higher, managerial and professional
positions.
Three-year undergraduate
courses
“1st Level” Master course
(Laurea triennale)
Two-year graduate courses
“2nd Level” Master course
(Laurea magistrale)
Ph.D Programmes
WHAT ARE CREDITS?
The University credit system (CFU) which is based on ECTS system, is represented by
numerical values allocated to course units to describe the student workload. Each credit is
equivalent to 25 hours’ work including lessons, hands-on practice, laboratories, internships and
self-study. The total work of an Italian student is calculated as 60 credits which correspond to
1500 hours per year. A course unit will be allocated with credits when examination is passed
by the student with a minimum grade of 18/30.
For further information on ECTS (European Credit Transfer System) the reference website
is: http://europa.eu.int/comm/education/programmes/socrates/ects_en.html
WHAT ARE CLASSES? (classi)
Under the new system, following the reform, all degree courses are grouped into classes
(classi) which relate to a specific field of study. Degrees belonging to one class all have the
same legal value.

SPINETOLI
The City of Fermo, located on a hill facing the
Adriatic sea and a short distance from the area’s
principal roads, conserves within its urban structure
medieval elements of exceptional interest: the
harmonious Piazza del Popolo and the town hall, the
Palazzo degli Studi, and the 12th century Duomo on
the flat ground of Girfalco. One of the town’s
extraordinary treasures is the collection of antique
books housed in the municipal library. The cultural
traditions and the artistic legacy come together to
form a strong, productive fabric, strongly intent on
moving forward, toward international markets.
Further information on: http://www.fermo.net/
Jesi was an important city during the Middle Ages
and the Renaissance. It is the birthplace of
Frederick II and illustrious humanists and musicians
(Angelo Colocci, Giovan Battista Pergolesi). The
industrial network is among the most highly
developed in the region and includes companies
that are world leaders in their fields. The University
is housed in the historic Palazzo Ghislieri, a few
steps from the Town Hall.

2.3 HOW TO SELECT SINGLE COURSES
In order to facilitate them in their period of study, the University of Macerata allows all
exchange students to attend any and every course of whichever faculty they are interested in
(even if different from the area provided by their Bilateral Agreement) on the condition that:
- their Learning Agreement has been approved by the Erasmus coordinators of both the home
and the hosting institution;
- the course attended belongs to the current academic year.
After having selected your courses, you will attend your lectures without having to register
in advance – you simply go to the first lesson available. More details on timetables, rooms,
professors’ office hours and final exams are available on the web page of the single faculties
(http://www.unimc.it/didattica/facolta). No exchange students are admitted in one-year
Master courses and Ph.D Programmes.
2.4 PROFESSORS’ CONTACTS AND WEB PAGES
Professors have a personal web page with information on their contacts, courses and office
hours. To find all the professors’ personal pages, just write the professor’s surname in the
search string “CERCA” (yellow button) on our homepage http://www.unimc.it/
2.5 COURSE PROGRAMMES
The programmes of the singles courses are available on:
http://www.unimc.it/materie-subjects

2.6 FINAL EXAMS
2.6.1 STUDENTS MEMORANDUM:
- To take the final exam, you will have to register about 10 days in advance by sending an
email message to the professor, specifying your name, the exam title and the date you will be
sitting for the exam. To find all the professors’ email addresses and personal pages, just write
the professor’s surname in the search string “CERCA” (yellow button) on our homepage
http://www.unimc.it/. To find the exam dates, look on the web sites of the single Faculties
(http://www.unimc.it/didattica/facolta).
- On the day of your exam, don’t forget to bring your Libretto degli studi (records book). Your
teacher will record your exam, your marks and the number of ECTS credits awarded, both on
your Libretto degli studi and on the official exam register (the Libretto is not legally valid and is
only a student memorandum).
2.6.2 TEACHERS MEMORANDUM
- The foreign students coming within mobility programmes can access to all degree courses
without distinction, both of first and second level, attend the lectures and take the related
exams (except from the Specializing Schools, Doctorates and Master’s degree courses).
- The exams of mobility foreign students are to be recorded following exactly the same
procedure adopted for Italian students, carefully filling all the fields provided in the exam
register.
- When recording an exam, the teacher must always report the number of credits achieved,
according to the Italian study plan. Should the student ask to take an exam with a number of
credits lesser or greater than those indicated in the current study plan, the Sending Institution
Coordinator will have to request it in a specific request in writing and with the due reasons.
Then, the Delegate to International Relations of the pertaining Faculty in our university will
evaluate if the request is relevant. However, only special cases will be considered to apply for
this procedure.
- In the exams register, in the space for the matriculation number, the teacher must write the
type of mobility or exchange programme. So, for example, « Erasmus student », « Bilateral
agreement student », etc. (as provided in the student’s university record book under the item
« Università degli Studi di Macerata »).
- The session in which the international student takes the exam must be correspondent to the
academic mobility year of the student. For instance: if a student is part of the Erasmus
exchange for the academic year 2008-2009, he/she cannot take exams scheduled for students
of previous academic years, otherwise the exam will be automatically cancelled.
- The foreign students must take the exams following the prearranged schedule and the
enrolment procedures as requested by the various Faculties. If the exam calls overlap and the
students cannot extend their mobility staying until the next exam call, the students can submit
to the teacher a specific request, duly proved and with the detailed reasons, to put off the
exam. The teacher can re-open the exam session (always complying with the session terms)
and record the exam by clearly specifying that the re-opened session is reserved only to
foreign students who have concomitant exams. However, only special cases and oral exams
will be considered to apply for this procedure.
- The teacher must submit, through the university post service, the copies of the exams
registers (yellow sheets) to the Student Secretariat of the pertaining faculty immediately
after closing the exam call as, according with what is submitted to the Student Secretariat,
the International Relations Centre will draw up the transcript of records to forward to the
Sending Institution in good time.

3.2 INTRODUCING THE CRI
Who we are
We are a reference point for all foreign students who decide to study at our university and for
those Italian students as well as graduates who would like to study abroad.
What we do
We keep in touch with foreign universities, follow programmes for research and international
cooperation also to obtain recognized qualifications. In particular, we run European
programmes such as LLP, Erasmus Studio, Erasmus Placement and Leonardo, plus six nonEuropean Exchange programmes with Albania, Australia, Canada, Russia, Palestine, the U.S.A.
(we also have a summer course at Princeton) and Tunisia.
Why to use us
If you intend studying at our University we can assist you during your permanence here:
•
•
•
•
•
We will take care of your enrolment and the final recognition of your credits.
We will help you find accommodation.
We will introduce you to an Erasmus Buddy – a student who will help you to find
yourself at home in our town.
We will put you in touch with MacErasmus, the European network ESN (Erasmus
Student Network) that organizes outings, cinema forums and ad hoc cultural activities
for international students.
We will help you better your Italian offering you free courses. You can enroll either
for an online course that will be activated before your arrival or for language courses
during your first and second semester which will give you Ects credits.

We will be happy to chat or video chat in English, French and Spanish, so find out when you

All useful information for incoming exchange students can be found on our website:
http://www.unimc.it/incoming-erasmus
3.3 ITALIAN LANGUAGE COURSES
The University of Macerata has established free Italian language courses to help foreign
exchange students with any difficulties in understanding University lectures. These courses are
at no cost for the students and are aimed at developing the language skills required for your
subsequent studies. The courses available are:
ON-LINE COURSE: before arriving to Italy, in September 2010
ON-SITE COURSES: in classroom, once arrived in Italy
o 1st sem.: from the middle of September to the first week of October 2010
Level: beginner, intermediate, advanced.
o 2nd sem.: from February 2011
Level: to be decided according to the number of the applicants and to their
Italian language skills.
If you wish to attend our Italian language courses (either on-line or on-site) please, mark the
appropriate entry in your Application form.
The on-line course is based on a web environment, organized to let students get
familiar with the Italian Language, the University of Macerata and Italy in general before your
arrival. Although not intended to be a proper language course, it offers a chance for interaction
and intercultural communication among all the students, to share ideas about Italy, Italian,
and Italians. In the on-line environment you can “virtually” meet and get in touch with all the
other visiting students, and moreover with some other persons, from the University of
Macerata itself, who are involved with their future arrival. There, you’ll be given the chance to
do some activities in order to get ready to your stay in Italy, according to both the linguistic
and cultural point of view.
The on-site courses are held in the 1st and 2nd semester of every a.y. You will attend a
beginner, intermediate or advanced course (40 hours) depending on the results of an exam
testing your Italian language skills. 8 ECTS credits are recognized for these courses for
students attending 75% of the classes and passing the final exam.
3.4 ERASMUS BUDDY
The International Office gives all exchange students the opportunity to apply for an Erasmus
Buddy: a student from the University of Macerata who will help them get integrated into
Macerata’s university and social life. If you want to take part in the programme, tick the
relevant item in the Application Form. We always try to find Erasmus Buddies for all foreign
students. However, as the programme is on a voluntary basis, there might not be enough
Italian students for all the applicants.
3.5 ERASMUS STUDENT NETWORK - MacErasmus
The International Office will put you in touch with MacErasmus, the European network ESN
(Erasmus Student Network) that organizes outings, cinema forums and ad hoc cultural
activities for international students. Visit MacErasmus webpage to discover all the scheduled
activities: http://www.macerasmus.it/

to the Registry Office of Macerata as soon as you can and produce the following documents:
•
•
•
•
•
•
an ID card or passport;
the LLP/Erasmus certificate issued by the CRI, attesting your enrolment at the
University of Macerata and the length of your stay.
a document certifying the availability of adequate financial resources (at least €
5.061,68). You can self-certify that using a form provided by the CRI. In the form you
must specify the amount of your Erasmus Grant and the details of your bank account or
credit card. The Italian law provides that your financial resources should be always
superior to € 5.061,68 during your stay in Macerata and the registry office is entitled, if
necessary, to control the information given.
a statement of your place of residence, issued by your landlord (if you live in a private
flat) or by the CRI (if you live at the University Residence).
the E-106 form issued by the Health authority of your country, before leaving for
Italy. It is free and can be obtained immediately by simply presenting your Erasmus
Certificate. It will let you enter the Italian Health Care System which includes the whole
standard medical assistance financed by public funds. Unfortunately the European
Sanity Card will only entitle you to the primary care medical services.
