How to deliver your dissertation.
We inform you that the University has implemented a new procedure on the ESSE 3 Platform to present your graduation application and to upload your dissertation document.

To those who have already submitted their works, they do not need to implement further actions.
From March 9th, as per the adopted measures, all students will have to follow the online procedure.
On the Atheneum web portal, you can find a practical guide for students and teachers.
