ASP – Alta Scuola Politecnica

ASP Diploma & Diploma Supplement

The Alta Scuola Politecnica (ASP), given the high academic value recognized to its program, will award students of all cycles the “ASP Diploma” approved jointly by the Politecnico di Milano and the Politecnico di Torino.

In addition, for each student graduating from the Alta Scuola Politecnica, the ASP career will be included in the Diploma Supplement (DS) which is the only official supplementary document recognized, nationally and internationally, at the end of the university course. The Diploma Supplement (DS) is a document that integrates the official qualification obtained at the end of a course of study at a university or higher education institution.

The DS describes the nature, level, context, content and status of the studies undertaken and completed by the student according to an 8-point standard model, developed on the initiative of the European Commission, the Council of Europe and UNESCO. It facilitates the knowledge and evaluation of new academic qualifications by employers and helps the academic and professional recognition of Italian qualifications abroad and the international free movement of graduates.

This certification is issued in a bilingual (Italian-English) edition and consists of about ten pages. 

Therefore, ASP students at the end of the programme will receive both the “ASP Diploma” and the “Diploma Supplement” integrated with the ASP activities.

Since both universities are involved, it is recommended to the students to submit a thesis work under the supervision of a tutor from their own Politecnico and a supervisor from the partner Politecnico. Finally, the Thesis will be discussed in regular graduation sessions in students’ own university.
