Language courses

Intensive Italian Language and Culture courses

Free courses of Italian Language and Culture are granted to incoming students by the University Language Center (CLA): elementary and intermediate level are taught throughout the two semesters of the academic year, while intensive courses are organized in September and in February, just before the beginning of each semester. 
The intensive courses allow incoming students to acquire or to consolidate a basic level of knowledge of the Italian language, which is essential to properly attend lectures, mostly taught in Italian. This is why incoming students are required to have at least A2 level of Italian language.

Students who do not have A2 level of Italian are strongly recommended to attend the intensive courses starting at the beginning of September and February

Language courses, set in modules of 30, 40 and 75 hours, are totally free but students will be asked to buy the book used during the lessons. Students passing the final examination will obtain, along with the certificate of attendance and the score, the recognition of credits based on the duration of the attended course. The reference parameter is: 1 ECTS/CFU for each 12.5 hours of course (i.e., 75 hours = 6 ECTS/CFU).
