IMPORTANT

·         For courses taught in English, it is recommended that International students produce an International English Language Certificate preferably at level B2 (Independent User) of the Common European Framework of Reference for Language Learning and Teaching.

·         For courses taught in Italian, before matriculation, International students must prove their competence in Italian. They are normally asked to sit for an exam (usually held at the Italian University in September). However they may also meet the language requirement by submitting documentary evidence of already having competence in Italian.
