Learning Italian

The Department of Ancient and Modern Civilizations (DICAM) provides free courses of Italian language for Erasmus+ students. Elementary and intermediate level courses are organized throughout the two semesters of the academic year.

The attendance of the 40-hour long course allows students to get 2 credits (reported in the transcript of records) and the Certificate of Attendance. Please note that the total number of absences allowed is 25% of the total hours of lessons.  Students will receive 1 university credit (CFU) if they attend 17-33 hours of lessons and 2 university credits (CFU) if they attend between 33-40 hours.  The credits will be registered in the transcript of each participant.  However, no university credits (CFU) will be given to students who attend less than 17 hours of lessons.

The cost of the courses is as follows:

  • Erasmus students – no charge;
  • International students from the International Cooperation sector or regularly enroled – €100,00.
  • Other members of the student community or the general community (foreign nationals) will pay a 400 euros fee for the whole course.
