The research project shall be presented in a detailed dissertation on a specific topic, executed with a critical attitude and completed with a bibliography showing the sources consulted by the candidate
The Final Term Paper shall be written in about 35.000-40.000 words (200.000 – 250.000 characters), calculated including notes but excluding bibliography.
The Final Term Paper is evaluated on a 5 points scale.
The candidate shall submit the Final Term Paper title at least three months before the evaluation date.

A Committee appointed by the Course Council and composed of five tenured professors evaluates the Final Term Paper.

The Student Enquiries Office submits the calculation of students’ average to the Examining Board. It is the weighted average of the exams taken, ie the sum between each exam mark and how many credits it is worth, divided by the total of credits.
This calculation does not take honours into consideration.
The average is calculated with this formula:
(mark x credits) + (mark x credits) + (mark x credits)
sum of credits with mark
(30 x 9) + (27 x 6) + (23 x 9) = 26.625
In order to obtain the average out of 110, do the following proportion:
average (out of 30) : 30 = average (out of 110) : 110
average out of 110 = average (out of 30) x 110
from the previous example:
average out of 110 = 26.625x110
average = 97.625
- The average calculated by the Students Office software can vary when rounding up compared to the student’s calculation;
- The weighted average is available onlineby logging onto your MyUniTO profile
