Medical certificate for physical fitness for sporting activities

If you enrol in the Sport Science course, when enrolling and for each subsequent year of enrolment, it is obligatory to present a medical certificate (with a duration of one year) attesting to your physical fitness for sporting activities when the previous certificate expires.

If you are offered a place on the First Cycle degree course in Sports Science, when you enrol (or as soon thereafter as possible) you must send it, via the ticket service available using the link Infostudente, containing the following documentation:

  1. Medical certificate of physical fitness for sporting activities
  2. photocopy of ID (front and back) 
  3. declaration of conformity for Sports Science medical certificates.

The same documentation must be submitted if you enrol in subsequent years after the first year of the Sports Science course. You must replace any previous certificates that have expired with another valid medical certificate.

IMPORTANT GUIDELINES

The requested medical certificates shall be valid for one year (expiry is indicated on the certificate). When the certificate expires, students must, as long as they are enrolled in the Sports Science degree, renew their medical documentation and submit a new valid certificate.
