* Free choice courses
Students can choose courses of their choice. Every year the Faculty publishes the list of free choice courses offered.
The degree can be successfully concluded after the elaboration and defense of an original thesis work, which can be performed at either universities.
There is no compulsory attendance at unibz, although attendance of lessons, exercise classes and lab work is strongly recommended. Attendance is instead compulsory for part of the courses offered at the University of Innsbruck.
