Our courses of Italian language for international students enrolled in BAs/BScs or post-graduate degree courses taught in English or enrolled in PhD course are usually held in term 2 of every academic year.
The duration of each couse is 40 hours, with two-hour classes, two classes per week. More information on course delivery mode later. There might be some changes in the kind of courses offered.
If you are a student enrolled in a BA or BSc taught in English, or are enrolled in a post-graduate degree course taught in English, or are a PhD student and wish to attend an Italian course, you are required to take a placement test which will allow you to take a course which is better suited to your level of Italian.
If you find that the level of the course you are attending is not suitable, you can ask your teacher to be moved into a different level course within the first week of attendance.
If the level of the course does not suit you, you can ask your teacher to change it during the first week of the course.
