Simultaneous enrolment - Degree Courses and Masters

Upon publication ofMinisterial Decree n. 930 of 29-07-2022, regulating the he simultaneous enrolment of students on a degree or master's degree course, research doctorate or specialisation courseat the same University or at other Universities, Schools or Institutes of Higher Education with special regulations, eCampus University hereby announces that, as from academic year 2022/2023, all students, even those enrolled at other Universities, may apply for simultaneous enrolment, provided that they meet all the requirements laid down by the regulations in force.

Below is a summary of the provisions contained in the Decree and the necessary requirements.

It is possible to enrol simultaneously, thus obtaining two different degrees.

  • to two different three-year degree courses
  • to two different master's degree courses
  • to an academic master, research doctorate or specialization course, except medical specialization school
  • at the same University or at other Universities, Schools or Institutes of Higher Education with special regulations
  • at italian or international institutions


It is not allowed to enrol simultaneously into two different Universities, two Institutes of Higher Education with special regulations

  • two bachelor's degrees or master's degrees belonging to the same class
  • to the same Academic Master

please note: enrolment in two degree or master's degree courses, belonging to different degree or master's degree classes, s allowed if the two courses differ in at least two-thirds of their educational activities.


Students intending to enrol in a second course of study  or willing to change course within the same university or transfer courses between different universitiesupon enrolment, must present a self-certification, to be renewed annually, in which he/she declares his/her intention to enrol in a different university courseelf-certifying that he/she meets the necessary requirements (it is not, for example, possible to enrol simultaneously in a Bachelor's degree and a Master's degree for a student who has not yet graduated)

please note: this self-certification must be submitted to both universities..

FAQ (for further questions, please refer to the FAQs published in the official website of the Italian Ministry of Education)

From an administrative point of view, the national inter-university courses, qualify as a single course of study. Therefore, enrollment to a second course is permitted under Law No. 33 of 2022.
The possibility of two identical master's degree courses must be assessed by the university, given that it is unlikely that the same university will operate two identical master courses and that two different universities will operate two identical master courses.
The advanced training courses provided for in art. 6, par. 2, lett. C), law 341/1990 are not contemplated by art. 1 of law n. 33/2022. The enrollment in more than one advanced training course is permitted.
For the purpose of the differentiation for at least two-thirds of the educational activities - given that the calculation must be made on the basis of the objective characteristics of the course of study with reference to the planned teaching offer and in particular to the SSD/SADs attributed to the basic characterising, related or supplementary and additional activities as well as to the relevant CFU/CFA - the competent teaching structure shall refer to the sum of the absolute values of the differences of the CFU/CFAs for each disciplinary sector. Whenever necessary, the competent didactic structure will have the the task of identifying the mandatory SSD/SADs to be used for calculation purposes. In the event that the differentiation is to be calculated between study courses of different durations, the calculation of the two-thirds is to refer to the study course of shorter duration. In addition, it should be noted that it remains within the autonomy of the institutions - where appropriate - to make use of further criteria (e.g. teachings and/or syllabuses of teachings), in order to correctly calculate the differentiation for at least two-thirds of the educational activities.
Given that Law 33/2022 does not regulate simultaneous enrolment in a PhD course and a Master's degree course, we defer assessment of the possibility of simultaneous enrolment in similar cases to the respective collegiate bodies, which will verify whether the conditions for the acquisition of the knowledge and skills required to achieve the educational objectives of each course exist.
The students enrolled in a Joint degree course are not excluded from the possibility of dual enrollment. However, students enrolled in a Double degree course are excluded from the possibility of dual enrollment. Article 2, Paragraph 7 of Ministerial Decree 930/2022 states: "In case of enrollment in international study courses providing double, multiple or joint degrees with foreign universities; and joint degrees awarded in the case of national inter-university study courses, please refer to the regulations in force on the subject".
Taking into account the provisions of Law 33/2022 and Ministerial Decree 930/2022, we defer the assessment of the possibility of simultaneous enrolment in the case in question (i.e. PhD course and school of specialisation or master's degree and school of specialisation) to the respective collegiate bodies, which will verify the compatibility of the obligation to attend with the existence of the conditions for the acquisition of the knowledge and skills necessary for the achievement of the training objectives of each course.
No. However, simultaneous registration is legally possible, subject to the provisions of Article 3 of Ministerial Decree 930/2022.
[Questo significa che è possibile la contemporanea iscrizione ma, poiché il corso di specializzazione si configura come un corso a frequenza obbligatoria, è consentita l’iscrizione ad un secondo corso di studio che non presenti obblighi di frequenza (art. 3 DM 930/2022). Detto quindi che il corso di sostegno è compatibile con la contemporanea iscrizione a un altro corso a frequenza non obbligatoria, resta da capire se la norma trova applicazione già con riferimento al VII ciclo (che ricordiamo ha anno accademico 2021/2022); facendo riferimento alla faq emanata con riferimento ai corsi di specializzazione, è possibile dare una risposta affermativa, tenuto conto che la predetta faq, a questa pagina identificabile col n°9, così chiarisce: “[…] tutte le scuole di specializzazione di area sanitaria ad accesso riservato ai medici sono attivate con riferimento all’accademico precedente rispetto a quello in essere rispetto agli altri corsi di studio. La circostanza che le scuole di specializzazione siano attivate con riferimento all’anno accademico precedente non rileva rispetto all’applicazione della legge n. 33/2022.” Con questa FAQ il Ministero chiarisce quindi che, per quanto riguarda i corsi di specializzazione, attivati con bandi a.a. 2021/2022 (anno accademico precedente rispetto all’anno di effettiva frequenza), questa discrasia temporale non rileva ai fini dell’applicazione della legge n. 33/2022. La situazione è perfettamente analoga a quella dei corsi di specializzazione per le attività di sostegno.]
