Services provided to universities

The inter-university consortium AlmaLaurea supplies reliable data in a short time to the Governing Bodies of the universities that are part of the consortium, to the Assessment Units and to the Committees dealing with Teaching Activities and Career Guidance. These data serve as a basis for fostering all decisional processes and activity planning, with a particular attention for all training activities and services targeted at students.

AlmaLaurea not only follows with interest what happens to the students both during their studies and when they start to work, but it also guarantees what follows:

  • The whole basic documentation collected by AlmaLaurea on its associated universities.
    The databank, which was created through the collection of administrative documents, pre-degree questionnaires and documents collected through targeted phone interviews, is for each university an essential source for further investigation and analysis in addition to the analysis made by AlmaLaurea itself.

  • Training targeted at the personnel chosen by universities for dealing with the basic documentation.

  • Yearly report on graduate profile.
    This report is divided into the following sections: university, faculty and degree course. It takes into consideration all the students who graduated during a given year and it examines several variables, such as: the age at which a student graduates, obtained marks, graduation mark, degree taken in the time prescribed, duration of the course of studies, parents' qualification, social class, secondary school diploma and school-leaving examination mark, regular attendance, courses attended abroad, use of laboratories, traineeships or internships, time needed to write the degree thesis, assessment of the academic experiences made, language skills, IT skills, work experiences made during studies, intention to continue studies, preferred job and job sector and significant aspects of the preferred job.
    The report, which is generally issued by the month of June of the year that is subsequent to the year analysed in the report itself, meets the requirements of the Assessment Units and of the Governing Bodies of the universities that are part of AlmaLaurea. Moreover, it provides career-guidance staff, secondary school students facing the choice of faculty and their families with up-to-date and reliable data.
    Both an electronic and a paper version of the report are available, like all other documents, on www.almalaurea.it, where it may be compared with the reports of the past years.

  • Yearly report on graduates' employment situation.
    This report, which is divided in two sections (university and faculty), examines the employment condition of graduates after one, three and five years from the graduation. Moreover, it takes into consideration the labour market prospects and the correlation that these prospects have with the academic studies carried out.
    Like the above mentioned report, this report is also available in an electronic and paper version. All documents related to www.almalaurea.it are available on www.almalaurea.it, where they may be compared with the documents of the past years.

  • Data regarding the employment situation of PhDs who graduated from the universities that are part of the consortium are constantly updated.

  • An archive containing the titles of all degree thesis and PhD dissertations is also available.

  • Students are protected against any legal dispute arising from errors in their curricula -even from errors caused by optical reading systems- through the activation of an interactive service of control and correction of the curricula. The interaction with all associated universities is based on the data recorded by secretariats.

  • Graduates' curricula are checked and in case any errors are found, they are sent back to the university, so that they can be corrected.

  • A service for curricula updating and implementation is available.

  • Databank internationalisation: all curricula have an English version and the translation into other languages will be soon activated. For this reason they can be consulted by foreign companies looking for Italian graduates.

  • Activation of databank translation and of a support for translation according to what the university reform of 2001-02 provides for.

  • Reports targeted at the press, companies, professional organisations and specific information campaigns.

  • The management of the databank of AlmaLaurea is carried out by specific consultation counters. The advantages of this service are both the monitoring and the fostering of the relationships with companies. Moreover, 80% of the sums collected by the consultation counters are then managed by each university. In compliance to the so-called "Legge Biagi", AlmaLaurea supplies -autonomously or in association with the universities- a service of candidates' selection and pre-screening which is aimed at reducing the time that companies need to find their personnel.

  • AlmaLaurea gives the opportunity to post on the web site job advertisements aimed at the selection of the personnel to be hired by universities.

  • Finally, it gives the opportunity to bring all web site visitors near to the different kinds of courses promoted by each university, such as: second level degree courses, postgraduate courses, specialisation schools, first level master's degree courses, second level master's degree courses, PhD degree courses.
