The official teaching language in UNIFI is Italian, therefore the courses and exams are given in Italian. To be admitted and attend courses  an official certification attesting to the language level possessed by the student (at least B1) is required. Certification may be issued by the home university or by official certifying bodies. Before the beginning of each semester, an Italian language course for foreigners is planned for interested students, at CLA Centro Linguistico di Ateneo.

Incoming exchange students must provide:

·         Certified B1 level of Italian mandatory to attend courses held in Italian;

·         Certified B2 English mandatory to attend courses held in English, if applicable.

Incoming students can attend one Italian Language course without paying any fees. You can find all the information at CLA;

Please note that, even in the case of enrolling only in courses taught in English, a knowledge of the Italian language corresponding to B1 level is strongly recommended for day-to-day life at the University and more generally in Florence.

The Italian Language Course is not an academic exam and it does not provide ECTS credits or marks, so it cannot be added to your Learning Agreement and it will not be certified in your final official Transcript of Records.

If you don't provide your Italian language certificate when applying, you are accepted only on condition of showing it upon your arrival.

Otherwise you will be asked to attend  a language course in Firenze first of all, and only after that it you will be allowed to start with your program.


Language requirements for internship and clinical rotations

A B2 level of Italian is strongly recommended to successfully attend practical trainings.
