Test for Knowledge of Italian Language

These procedures are subject to the current and future emergency provisions of the Italian Government and of the European Union regarding the prevention and containment of the epidemic of the COVID virus 19.


PART III - PROFICIENCY IN THE ITALIAN LANGUAGE

TEST OF PROFICIENCY IN THE ITALIAN LANGUAGE
Higher education institutions are obliged to test the linguistic ability of students for access to courses. Each institution
must organise a test of proficiency in the Italian language, obligatory for all Laurea degree and Laurea Magistrale a ciclo
unico (single-cycle) degree courses, except for those cases which are exempted as indicated in the paragraph below. This
test is to be held preferably off-campus and before the visa application, thereby allowing for the certification of this
proficiency during the request for a study visa, for an acceleration of such procedures and to lessen the pressure on the
candidate.
The outcome of the evaluation of linguistic knowledge must be certified in the pre-enrollment application and in the
eventual letter of eligibility for registration, in order to exempt the diplomatic-consular Missions from the
aforementioned verification.
Even in the case of courses held in other languages, this language element must be indicated in the pre-enrolment request
and in the eventual letter of eligibility for registration, considering that for such courses a knowledge test of Italian is not
required: in all these cases, students must deliver satisfactory certification of an adequate knowledge of the foreign
language in which the course is held. Nobody may be admitted to further competitive or aptitude tests - if any - who has
not passed the language test. As regards the Laurea Magistrale (non single-cycle) degree courses, independent decisions
by the universities may include passing the test of proficiency in the Italian language.


1.1. Exemption from the language proficiency test
The following students are exempted from the Italian language test, but subject to the limit of the specific number of places
reserved for visa applicants and residents abroad:
a) those students who have obtained certificates of proficiency in the Italian language with a grade not inferior to B2 level
of the Council of Europe, awarded as determined by the CLIQ (Italian Quality Language Certification) quality system,
which unites in one association the current certification bodies (University for Foreigners of Perugia, University for
Foreigners of Siena, Rome Tre University and the Dante Alighieri Society) and University for Foreigners "Dante
Alighieri" of Reggio Calabria, as well as in convention with Italian Institutes of Culture abroad or other institutions.
These certifications may be gained in the country of origin, in the approved exam centres found all over the world;
b) the students described in the following paragraph are also exempted from the preliminary Italian language test and are
enrolled independently of the fixed quota of places.


1.2. Exemption from the language test and quotas
For enrolment to Laurea and Laurea Magistrale a ciclo unico (single-cycle) degree courses, exemption is granted to,
irrespectively of the number of reserved places:
c) those students who hold the final 4- or 5-year senior secondary school diploma awarded by Italian State or Staterecognised schools abroad;
d) those students holding one of the final leaving qualifications from a secondary School as listed in Attachment 2;
e) the holders of certificates pertaining to the Lower Secondary School final qualification obtained in Argentina, which
certify the attendance of a study course which includes the teaching, for at least 5 years, of the Italian language,
according to Law no. 210 of 7.6.1999 (Gazzetta Ufficiale no. 152 of 1.7.1999);
f) those students who have earned the Diploma in Italian Language and Culture at the Universities for Foreigners of
Perugia and Siena;
g) Those students who have earned the certification in Italian language proficiency, with a grade of C1 or C2 of the Council
of Europe, awarded as determined by the CLIQ (Italian Quality Language Certification) quality system, which unites
in one association the current certification bodies (Universities for Foreigners of Perugia and Siena, Roma Tre
University and the Dante Alighieri Society), as well as those issued by the University for Foreigners “Dante Alighieri”
of Reggio Calabria, also in convention with Italian Institutes of Culture abroad or other accredited institutions.
h) For enrolment in Laurea Magistrale degree courses (should the University autonomously require the test) exemption
is granted to those students holding the qualifications outlined in the previous letters d) and e).
