Test for Knowledge of Italian Language

PART III - PROFICIENCY IN THE ITALIAN LANGUAGE


1. 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 offcampus 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 test of proficiency in the Italian language is not required for courses held in other languages, for which the individual universities can check for the possession of specific certification.
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 mandate passing the test of proficiency in the Italian language.

1.1 Exemption from the language proficiency test
The following 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 (Certificazione Lingua Italiana di Qualità) quality system, which unites in one association the current certification bodies (University for Foreigners of Perugia, University for Foreigners of Siena, Roma 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) those students described in the following paragraph are 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 degree and Laurea Magistrale a ciclo unico (single-cycle) degree courses, exemption is granted to, irrespectively of the number of reserved places:
a) those students who hold the final 4- or 5-year secondary school diploma awarded by Italian State or State-recognised schools abroad;
b) those students holding one of the final qualifications from a secondary School as listed in Attachment 2;


c) the holders of equivalent certificates to the Middle 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 n. 210 of 7.6.1999 (Gazzetta Ufficiale n. 152 of 1.7.1999);


d) those students who have earned the certification in Italian language proficiency at the Universities for Foreigners of Perugia and Siena;


e) 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 (Certificazione Lingua Italiana di Qualità) quality system, which unites in one association the current certification bodies
(Universities for foreigners of Perugia, of Siena and of Reggio Calabria, Roma Tre University and the Dante Alighieri Society), also in convention with Italian Institutes of Culture abroad or other institutions.
For enrolment to 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).
