Students coming to Sapienza

Welcome to the Sapienza University Erasmus Programme!

Key Information for Erasmus Students

Language Requirements

As anticipated last year and in line with the new Erasmus+ Agreements, Sapienza will only accept students with an intermediate-level knowledge of Italian (i.e., threshold level B1 or higher of the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages).

Students may demonstrate their level of Italian by sending us the results of the online assessment provided by Online Linguistic Support (OLS). Alternatively, students can prove their level of Italian with an official certificate (CILS - Certificazione di Italiano come Lingua Straniera, CELI - Certificazione Italiano generale, PLIDA - Progetto Lingua Italiana Dante Alighieri, IT - Certificato di competenza generale in italiano come lingua straniera, CITA/TELC European Language certificates and UNIcert) or with other certifications (i.e. certificates issued by universities, language centres, schools, etc.). The test results and/or the certificate should be sent  to us before your arrival (August 30, 2016 for 1st semester students - January 30, 2017 for 2nd semester students ). Further information will be sent directlyto the students.

PLEASE NOTE: An intermediate level of English is accepted instead of Italian proficiency in the following cases: (a) students who wish to attend degree programmes in English or single courses for visiting students; (b) students coming for their final research project or for training work, whose tutor accepts English as working language.

Italian Language Courses

Language courses are free of charge for all students wishing to attend them. In order to enrol in Sapienza Italian language courses, incoming Erasmus students have to fill out the proper section on their application form by June 15th, 2016 and take a placement test upon arrival. Students who are not interested in these courses, do not have to fill out this section (courses are not compulsory).

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.

 International Student Welcome Week

Sapienza organises an International Student Welcome Week for international students coming in September. During the Welcome Week, students receive useful information about academic  and university life at Sapienza. It's also a great opportunity to meet with our Erasmus Coordinator, Prof. Luciano Saso, Erasmus staff and members of the Erasmus Student Network (ESN).


Enrolment in Exams for Erasmus Students – Infostud Service

As an Erasmus student at Sapienza, once you have filled out your on-line application form, you will receive a username and a temporary password to access the Infostud service. Please remember that you are not supposed to register by yourself!

At this point, your registration number (“matricola”) will not be active, yet. You will have to change your password to access other Infostud services. Your registration number will be fully actived only once you arrive in Rome and pick up your Erasmus student card at your faculty Erasmus office.

If you lose your registration number and/or your password, please contact:

Summer School in Italian Language and Culture
Sapienza organises a Summer School for students to study and discover many aspects of Italian literature, arts and cinema, whilst perfecting their language skills. The Summer School includes two independent and parallel courses, taught both in English and Italian, with a final assessment test. Both courses include guided visits to the most important monuments and sites in Rome.
