Key Information for Erasmus Students

Language Requirements

As per the new Sapienza guidelines, students are no longer required to provide an official certificate attesting their Italian language level. However, we recommend that students have no less than an intermediate level of Italian to make the most of their stay and make daily life in Rome easier and more enjoyable.

Italian Language Courses

Language courses are free of charge for all students who wish to attend them. In order to enroll in Sapienza Italian language courses, incoming Erasmus students must fill out the relevant section on their application form and take a placement test upon arrival.
Students have the following options:
- INTENSIVE COURSE (strongly suggested to students who do not have an intermediate level of Italian): Daily classes, 3 weeks - ENTRY TEST on September, 4th 2017
- REGULAR COURSE: Classes twice a week, 3 months - ENTRY TEST on October, 5th 2017

Academic Information

For all information on your academic calendar, syllabus, exams, etc. you need to contact the Erasmus Officer at your receiving Faculty. All didactic activity is managed at a Faculty level.

Erasmus Welcome Week

Sapienza organises an Erasmus Welcome Week in from 18th to 22nd September 2017 for international students. During the event, students receive useful information about academic and university life at Sapienza. It is a great opportunity to meet the Erasmus staff and members of the Erasmus Student Network (ESN).

Enrolment in Exams for Erasmus Students – Infostud Service
