All non-EU students residing abroad (who have requested a Visa) must sit for an Italian language test in order to be admitted to University academic programs.

The following categories are exempted from having to take the italian language test:

  1. Students wishing to enroll in a study program taught entirely in English;
  2. Students possessing a certificate that allows them to be exempted from having to sit for the Italian language test and from the limits of the quota reserved for Non-EU students residing abroad:
    • Secondary School Diploma (four or five years of schooling, if awarded by an Italian or equivalent private school abroad);
    • Or one of the Secondary School diplomas as specified in Annex 2 of the regulations set by the MUR Ministerial Circular (http://www.studiare-in-italia.it/studentistranieri/)
    • A certificate attached to the Diploma, obtained in Argentina and certifying that the study program includes an Italian language course with a minimum duration of 5 years;
    • Italian Language and Culture degree awarded by the University for Foreigners of Perugia or Siena;
    • C1 or C2-level certification of knowledge of the Italian language (according to the CEFR), issued within the framework of the CLIQ quality system*;
  3. Students holding a certificate that allows them to be exempted from having to sit for the Italian language test but not from the quota reserved for non-EU students:
    • Certification of Italian language proficiency (at least a B2 level or CELI3 of the Council of Europe), issued within the framework of the CLIQ quality system*.
* The CLIQ (Italian Language Quality Certification) system brings together the current Certifying Bodies (Università per Stranieri di Perugia, Università per Stranieri di Siena, Roma Tre University and Dante Alighieri Society), also in agreement with the Italian Institutes of Culture abroad or other organizations.
