3rd UNIVERSITY LEVEL

In Italy the university system consists of 3 levels (stipulated by the Bologna process): undergraduate degree (level 1), postgraduate (master’s) degree (level 2) , and Research Doctorate (PhD) degree (level 3). There is also a further range of courses issuing degrees, including Postgraduate Specialist Courses: level 3 courses through which the student can acquire the knowledge and skills needed to practise a profession at the highest possible level. The qualification obtained is called a Postgraduate Specialist Degree.
