    Hi there, it's my first add. I'm traslating my laurea certificate 'cause I need a statement of comparability.

    I've got two sentences:

    1) "ha superato l'esame di laurea in Fisica, riportando punti.."

    I put down "passed the exam for 'Laurea' in Physics, receiving the score "

    but I guess it's a bit naive..

    2) "e' Dottore Magistrale in Fisica indirizzo teorico generale"

    I'd use "is Dottore Magistrale in Physics, Theoretical curriculum"..

    of course I don't have to translate the specific terms laurea and Dottore Magistrale, since it's a task of their.

    grazie!!

    thanks for the answer!! Anyway I think there's a problem with Italian Education. In Italy you hold the title of 'Dottore' even after taking a master degree, not only after a PhD. So is there a title that qualify you after being awarded of a M.Sc. ? Can I say "I'm Master of Physics"?

    You can say "I am a Master of Physics" but it sounds a little pretentious. I would say: "I hold/have a Masters (Master of Science) Degree in Physics."

    Salve a tutti devo tradurre "ha superato l'esame di laurea in scienze biologiche con la votazione di 110/110 e lode"
    Io tradurrrei: She has passed the examination fpr the master of science degree in biological science with first class honours.
    Grazie

    She has passed the exam in Biological Science with a score of 110/110 and graduated summa cum laude.

    Nota bene che l'esame di laurea per il primo livello nell'Italia è uguale a un Bachelor's degree negli Stati Uniti è la maggior parte dei paesi anglofoni. Anche nota che il sistema di lode italiana non è uguale al sistema di lode in qualcuno paese e ogni università ha un sistema diverso di lode. Di solito una votazione di 110/110 è uguale a summa cum laude, ma non sempre.

    Ti ringrazio, comunque io ho una laurea di secondo livello, nei paesi anglosassoni penso che sia un master of science o un master degree. Che cosa ne pensi?

    @mutsil: Please see this thread.
    Laurea triennale, laurea specialistica, master, dottorato.

    At the end, PaulfromItaly has added a lot of links. Hopefully this thread explains degrees - I tried very hard to do the research necessary. Please note that there are differences between Australia, the UK, and the USA below the level of doctorate. Most people with a Masters Degree or a Bachelor's degree from Europe when coming to the USA must complete a Masters Degree or Bachelor's degree again before entering a PhD program.
