Recognition for competitive sporting activities of students who perform sports to a high level meets objectives deemed important by the University. These include:

  • Providing a further means of individual growth, thereby helping to foster sporting culture;
  • Offering an opportunity to come together with other people and create a shared identity for all students at University of Brescia, whilst also increasing the University’s stature;
  • Encouraging high-level athletes to enrol in University of Brescia.

As a result, with a resolution passed by the Academic Senate (no. 172 dated 28.10.2018), University of Brescia welcomes and encourages adoption of any actions that foster competitive sporting endeavours of students enrolled at our university.


By request of those concerned, extraordinary calls are reserved for athlete-students involved in competitions at Olympic, European or National level in disciplines recognised by the Italian National Olympic Committee or the Italian Paralympic Committee if the sporting commitments clash with the exam calendar.


At the sole discretion of the Programme Boards and the Department Boards, flexible attendance measures and awarding of university educational credits (CFUs) may be incorporated into the Course Regulations for sporting and competitive activities performed on a world and European Olympic level, or on an Italian level within intermediate categories, up to a maximum of 9 CFUs (from the open-choice subjects) as per the following guidelines:

a. sport practised at Olympic, world and European level: up to 6 CFUs;
b. sport practised at Italian level and intermediate categories: up to 3 CFUs.


Possibility of tutorship programmes for athlete-students during the most intense study periods.


The sporting activity must be proven by submitting the certificate released by the Italian National Olympic Committee or the Italian Paralympic Committee, or by the Italian University Sports Centre (CUSI) displaying the sporting activities concerned, how they are carried out and the results obtained.
