Following a recent reform, Italian Universities now confer three main degrees, patterned along the three-level scheme common to several education systems across the world.
The first-level degree is a three-year Laurea. This is an undergraduate program equivalent to a Bachelor. The second-level degree is a two-year Laurea Magistrale. This is a graduate program equivalent to a Master. Possession of a first-level degree is required to access the Laurea Magistrale.
The third-level degree is a three-year Dottorato di Ricerca. This is a post-graduate program equivalent to a Ph.D. Possession of a second-level degree is required to access the Dottorato di Ricerca.
In the framework of the Italian university system, first-level or second-level Professional Master's Programmes (in Italian: 'Master universitari di primo o di secondo livello') involve at least 1 year of postgraduate specialization or executive education and training after the achievement of a Bachelor's or Master's degree.
