We are going to provide a series of Italian courses for students who participate in a placement test, which will take place on the Aulaweb in early October.
Following the tests, a number of Italian 50-hour courses - level A1 through to C1 - will be made available to students. Each student can attend a maximum of 2 courses during the same academic year. Students who have added the courses to their learning agreement will be allocated 2 CFUs per course at the end of each course and only upon passing a relevant test.
Students are required to add the course/s to their learning agreement by a given date which is yet to be disclosed.
In the first semester there will be only one placement test that will be available from 5th October (from 9:30 AM) to 11th October (08:00 AM) on Aulaweb. The entitled students will receive an email with the password to access the test on October 5th.
VERY IMPORTANT NOTICE: those students who did not manage to matriculate in time to sit the 15-11 October placement test will be able to sit another test in the first days of November. However, only those students singled out by the International Mobility Office will be entitled to take the test and will receive an email with further details within the first week of November.
The class lists will contain the Unige matriculation number but not the timetables and will be published on this page as of 18th October.
The courses will probably start in mid-November.
Even if you have never studied Italian before, please fill in the questionnaire published here.
If you do not fill it in, you will not be added to the classes for absolute beginners.
Course titles and codes
Codes to fill out learning agreements:
- A1 Italian Course: 89896
- A2 Italian Course: 89897
- B1 Italian Course: 89898
- B2 Italian Course: 89899
- C1 Italian Course: 89900
You will receive CFUs, which will then be transferred onto your Transcript of Records, only if the course is included in your Learning Agreement and if you take and pass the relevant exam at the end.
The 2 credits are not accompanied by a grade but they are comparable to a positive assessment (idoneità).
How are courses held?
Unless otherwise specified, term 1 classes will be held online on the Teams platform in a synchronous modality, which means that a teacher will be holding a class during scheduled times.
Students can access the final test only if they have attended at least 50% of the classes. Attendance counts only if students attend classes during class hours and NOT if they then watch or listen to the recorded classes outside class hours.
How do I obtain a level assessment statement (certificate)?
If you need a level assessment statement, please write to erasmus.clat[at]unige.it providing your name, surname, matriculation number, course name and attained level. In order for the statement to be issued, the payment of a 16 Euro stamp duty must be made. You will be sent a link to make a virtual payment after your mark has been validated. The Settore Sviluppo Competenze Linguistiche will send you the link and will then issue the statement upon receipt of said payment.
