In the following data, for the sake of synthesis, the data relating to first level graduates and two-year master's degrees are reported.

CITIZENSHIP AND PROVENANCE

One of the strengths of the University of Trieste is the percentage of graduates of foreign citizenship: a total of 6.3% (5.7% among the three-year period and 7.2% among the two-year term). The Trieste figure is higher than the national average of foreign citizenship graduates: the total is 3.5% (3.1% of the three-year period, 4.6% of the two-year magistrals).

The number increased compared to last year, when the overall percentage of foreign citizenship graduates was 5.9%.

64.9% of graduates have completed internships recognized by their course of study: 63.9% among first level graduates and 71.4% among two-year masters (a figure that rises to 85.7% if we also consider those who have only completed it in the three-year period).

These figures are also increasing compared to 2018.
