Italian universities offer courses in a limited number are on the increase and grow the student protests against the excessive presence of barriers to entry. Reading the data provided by the Ministry of Education, it turns out, in fact, that between courses and planned access to national and local level, those for which it is necessary to take the test selective are now well on 55 percent of the total.

The increase of the degree programs in a limited number of Italian universities. we are talking about 1,293 to 1,705 against the limited access that does not require it has aroused the wrath of the students, who in recent days have shown their dissent through occupations and demonstrations in Rome, Turin and Bari, in particular, in the capital and in the Piedmont capital, occupied the classrooms of the Board of the Department of Languages ​​and Chemistry, while Bari were able to avoid being introduced on a limited number in the faculty of political science. For the next few days are planned more protests, Padua and Pisa, against restricted access to Engineering.


The national spokesperson of Link – Coordination university, Campailla Alberto says that it is “a real warning about what we want to launch the substantial increase in degree courses with barriers access.” According to students, the increase of the courses in a limited number of Italian universities is basically the result of the current rules. Laws that “require a minimum number of teachers incarnated in relation to that of students enrolled, the block of turn-over, and limitations about the recruitment of new teachers, “effectively reducing the possibility of access to university graduates.

And when the number is not closed to discourage students, we think the ever-increasing amounts that young Italians are forced to pay if they want to continue their studies. According to a recent publication of a world center for research, collaboration and innovation McKinsey, 39 percent of respondents said they had not continued his studies in the causes of high taxes, a number much higher than that found in most other European countries, where the average of those who have continued to study economic problems is around 30 percent.
