Those who, in their previous studies, acquired at least 20 credits (CFU) in subjects taught in the 1st year of the Bachelor's degree programme in Medical Biotechnology or equivalent programmes may be admitted to years subsequent to the first. Those students must submit during the admission application the self-certification with exams and credits.

The Teaching Board must consider the equivalent courses - both for number of credits (CFU) and scientific disciplinary sector (SSD) - valid in order for them to be recognised.
