Student orientation services

The new website of the Student Orientation Office, with new form and content, is the result of a long process aimed at providing a better and more comprehensive service to its many users. Users are mostly secondary school pupils approaching the University for the first time, and schools' University Orientation Services which organise activities to assist their pupils in post-school choices. Making a decision means choosing the best alternative to satisfy one's expectations, preferences and aspirations.

Course of study in brief

Degree programme annual factsheet (SUA-CdS)

As part of the Quality Assurance system, complete, updated and easily available information on objectives, study plan, resources used and results achieved for each degree programme is made available through the SUA-CdS - Scheda Unica Annuale del Corso di Studio (Degree programme annual factsheet). This includes an Overview and three public sections (Learning Objectives, Student Experience, Learning Outcomes) which together provide a wide range of information about each degree programme. The SUA-CdS also contains an administrative section (Administration and Quality Management) that is for internal use only.

The Degree programme annual factsheet (SUA-CdS), which is currently available only in Italian, is a valuable tool that can be used by the University to design, implement and reorganise, as well as to evaluate, each degree programme. However, the SUA-CdS factsheet is also useful for students, to help them choose the right programme of study.

Obiettivo del corso è formare laureati in grado di progettare, coordinare e condurre l'attività di preparazione fisica e atletica in vari sport di squadra e individuali, comprese le attività sportive agonistiche per persone con disabilità, utilizzando correttamente l'esercizio fisico e l'allenamento come strumento di preparazione alle attività sportive, mantenendo altresì una specifica attenzione alla dimensione educativa, di promozione della salute e del benessere individuale.

Tali obiettivi si realizzano nel nuovo percorso formativo articolato in due curricula.
E' previsto un primo gruppo di insegnamenti in comune, finalizzati all'approfondimento di discipline biologiche e dell'adattamento all'esercizio fisico, in riferimento anche agli sport individuali e di squadra;
motorie e sportive, biomediche, psicopedagogiche
sociologiche.
Il piano didattico si snoda, quindi, in due percorsi caratterizzati dall'acquisizione di conoscenze e competenze scientifiche, professionali, organizzative avanzate nell'ambito di attività declinate sugli sport individuali e di squadra, di diverso livello agonistico e ricreativo oppure sugli sport di montagna e outdoor. Questo secondo curriculum è caratterizzato, da una particolare attenzione agli sport della montagna, all'organizzazione di eventi sportivi e all'innovazione tecnologica applicata in questo contesto.
I due percorsi sono finalizzati all'approfondimento specialistico ma anche all'acquisizione di conoscenze e metodologie inerenti:
- Le tecniche e le teorie dell'allenamento nei vari contesti di pratica sportiva
- I metodi e le tecniche delle attività motorie e sportive per differenti discipline sportive nei diversi contesti sia sportivi che di genere che per classi di età
- I metodi e le strumentazioni della valutazione funzionale finalizzata alla prestazione sportiva nel contesto di specificità di genere e di classi di età e di eccellenza, anche in ambienti naturali e di montagna
- le tecniche e le metodologie riferibili alla preparazione fisica per le differenti attività sportive svolte sia in forma individuale che di squadra, indoor e outdoor:

Sono, inoltre, previste ampie e specifiche esperienze pratiche svolte sia nel contesto di laboratori di fisiologia, biomeccanica e valutazione funzionale sia nel contesto proprio di realizzazione dei vari sport.
Il CdS prevede, inoltre, un tirocinio formativo presso enti esterni qualificati e di alto livello nonché in strutture e laboratori collegati all'Università dove consolidare le competenze con esperienza diretta nell'ambito professionale.

Quality Assurance

The quality of a degree programme is the extent to which it achieves its educational objectives and meets the quality requirements of the educational activities offered, which are determined in line with the needs and expectations of students and representatives of the world of work.

This programme has adopted a teaching Quality Assurance system in line with the University’s quality assurance guidelines and based on the e ANVUR national quality assurance guidelines, by carrying out the following activities:
  • periodic consultations with representatives of the world of work to assess the adequacy of the cultural and professional profiles offered in their courses;
  • design of educational contents and planning of resources;
  • organisation of educational activities and teaching services;
  • monitoring the effectiveness of teaching and planning measures to improve teaching and services;
  • provision of complete and up-to-date information on its website, relating to the programme (professional roles, expected learning outcomes, learning activities).
The above activities are scheduled and interrelated, based on the PDCA principles (Plan, Do, Check, Act).

In a Quality Assurance system, students play a fundamental role: each student can play their part by participating in the Quality Assurance groups of their degree programme and in the Faculty-Student Joint Committees or, more simply, by taking part in the Student Survey on teaching, or questionnaires. It’s in this context that specific workshops for student representatives (‘Laboratori di rappresentanza attiva’) are periodically made available to students by the University and the University’s Quality Assurance Board.

Other useful things

Crediti Formativi Universitari (CFU/ECTS credits): Italian university courses are based on the CFU system. 1 CFU is equal to 25 hours of study. The average annual academic workload for a full-time student is generally assumed to be 60 CFU. CFU and ECTS credits serve the same purpose and generally have the same value.
Degree class: Bachelor's and Master's degree programmes that have the same learning objectives and activities are grouped into “degree classes". The educational content of each programme is set autonomously by each university; however, universities are required to include certain educational activities (and the corresponding number of CFU credits) set at the national level. These requirements are established in relation to each degree class. Degrees in the same class have the same legal value.
Double/Joint degrees: the Italian universities may establish degree programmes in partnership with other Italian or foreign universities. Upon completion of these courses, graduates are awarded a joint or double/multiple degree, one from each Partner University.
