Unlike the Master's Degrees of the universities, the University Programs of Alma bring the participants to apply concepts to problems, timeframes and methods of work and facilitates their immediate entry to the world of work.
Second-level Master's of Alma are accessible only to those who have a Master's Degree of the old university system or a Master's Degree (Specialistica) of the new system. To enroll in a first-level Master a 3-year Bachelor's Degree or a Master of the old system is sufficient.
A study credit (Credito Formativo Universitario, CFU) represents a basic teaching unit consisting of 25 hours, which are divided in class-room activities, individual study and alternative study. Each Master's Program entails a minimum of 60 credits, of which at least 40 credits are for didactic activities, and an internship (or project work for employed participants) accounting for 12 to 20 credits. The acquired credits can be recognized for other study programs.
In order to enroll in a first-level Master's Program, at least a 3-year Bachelor's Degree (or a Master's Degree of the old system) is required, whereas for the second-level University Programs one needs to possess a Master's Degree (Specialistica in the new system).
