You Have to Know

Incoming students

1) Introduce yourself to the School of Law and handle a copy of your personal data (address, Italian telephone number, mail) to the Mobility assistant, during the Office opening hours;
2) Check with the Administrative assistant the courses you chose;
3) If any amendments are needed, please submit them until 30 days from your arrival.

The procedures to register (or sign up) for the exams of the courses you have chosen on your Learning Agreement are entirely computerized.

1. You can start signing up for an exam about from 20 days before until 3 working days prior to the official exam date. Once you have duly signed up on BACHECA APPELLI your university data (Surname, Name, student number, chosen course), your name is added to the preprinted exam registers.
If your name is not in this register, you cannot take the exam.
On the day of the exam (the official “appello”), you have to be presentin order to accept the grade you receive.

2. If the exam is passed.
Registration of the grade. The teacher will fill in the exam register at the end of the exam (oral and/or written), and your grade is simultaneously validated and it will appear on the TRANSCRIPT OF RECORDS which will be sent to your home university at the end of your stay.

3. If the exam is not passed.
You will have to sign up for the exam again, following the same procedure as described in point 1.

Even if you have done an exam before the official exam date you have to be present on the day of the exam, otherwise your grade will not be valid!!

a) if you do not correctly follow the sign-up and registration procedure for the exams you have chosen to take, your TOR will be dispatched late, due to long procedures of tracing the exams you have taken, and this might have negative consequences on the development of your career at your home university.
b) each national university system and each university in Europe employ different validation procedures for exams and the procedures applied in your home university will not necessarily coincide with the ones applied at the Università degli Studi di Milano Bicocca.

If you have any doubts, do not hesitate to consult the School International Office staff. They are at your disposal!

Please don’t hurry your departure: do not book a plane home before having finished all the following procedures:
a) Come to our office to get a signature on your Certificate of Good Standing.
b) Leave us a declaration about the exams you have taken and the last version of LA and amendments form (if we don’t have it already).
c) Complete the signing-out procedure at the International Office.
