  CHANGING YOUR APPLICATION

What to do if:

  • You want to edit dissertation information: If you wish to cancel your dissertation information you previously inserted, you can email conseguimentotitolo.studenti@unipd.it before the application period closes
  • You want to change the title of your dissertation: Your supervisor is required to email conseguimentotitolo.studenti@unipd.it and specify the latest version of the dissertation title (both in Italian and in English) as well as your student ID.
  • You have a new supervisor: New supervisors are required to email conseguimentotitolo.studenti@unipd.it to notify they are going to replace the previous supervisor. They must also specify the latest version of the dissertation title (both in Italian and in English) and your student ID.
  • You want to move your application to a later date, *but within the same session*: If more than one set of dates is available within the same period, you can apply to graduate later in the same period by emailing conseguimentotitolo.studenti@unipd.it before the last day of the first set of dates you initially registered for. Note: you cannot graduate before the dates you initially registered for.
  • You want to graduate in another session: To graduate during the session following the one you registered for, you are required to cancel your previous registration on Uniweb and submit a new one by the set deadlines. If no changes are to be made to the title/supervisor, you will keep the approval you gained on your first registration. However, you will have to pay € 16.00 through the new payment slip.

  CERTIFICATIONS AND DIPLOMAS

Diplomas are usually handed out during the graduation ceremony; if for some reason the diploma wasn't available on that day, you can submit a request so that it can be shipped to you: Bachelor's and Master's diplomas.
