At the end of the application procedure and within the same deadline, the following payments must be made:

  • € 16.00 (stamp duty) of graduation application fee;
  • € 16.00 (stamp duty) of parchment contribution.

The Ph.D. thesis, together with the final report, will be examined by two external reviewers appointed by the Board of Lecturers. Within 30 days of acceptance of the appointment, the reviewers will express an analytical evaluation of the Ph.D. thesis and propose its admission to the public discussion in the event of a positive judgment or minimal revisions requested (minor) or its postponement for a period of up to six months if they consider that significant additions or corrections are necessary (major revision).

The possible outcomes of the evaluation are:

  • POSITIVE OUTCOME: the thesis automatically acquires the final status.
  • MINOR REVISION REQUESTED: the revised and corrected thesis must be uploaded within 30 days.
  • MAJOR REVISION REQUESTED: within six months the updated thesis, revised and corrected as requested, must be uploaded and submitted for a second evaluation by the reviewers.

In the event of conflicting evaluations, the worst opinion prevails.

Based on the evaluations received, the Board of Lecturers admits/does not admit each Ph.D. student to the public discussion (University Ph.D. Regulations).


The discussion of the thesis takes place in a public session in front of an Evaluation Board appointed by a Rector's Decree on the proposal of the Board of Lecturers.

The final thesis approved by the supervisor will be automatically sent by the system to the members Selection Board.

At the end of the discussion, the Ph.D. thesis is approved or rejected with a motivated written judgment issued by the Evaluation Board. In the presence of results of particular scientific importance, the Commission can unanimously decide to award honours.

The title of Ph.D. (Dott. Ric.) is issued upon passing the final exam.

After the achievement of the Ph.D. title or upon the expiry of the requested embargo period, the University of Urbino will deposit the thesis in the open-access institutional archive IRIS ORA.

Moreover, the University will take care of the legal deposit of the Ph.D. thesis at the Central National Libraries of Rome and Florence.
