Language courses

Intensive Italian Language courses

Free courses of Italian Language 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 set in modules of 40 and 60 hours. Courses 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., 60 hours = 5 ECTS/CFU).

We strongly recommend students to attend our language courses especially if they do not have at least B1 level of Italian language.
