Credits required to complete the Joint programme in Physics (UNITN-SISSA): 132 ECTS
Notes: according to the Sorbonne (1988) and the Bologna (1999) declarations university-level study programmes in the European Higher Education Area are structured in university credits (ECTS). A university credit corresponds to 25 hours of student workload, time for personal preparation included. The annual average of workload for a full-time student is conventionally fixed at 60 credits.
