Students Coming to Sapienza

Welcome to the Sapienza University Erasmus Programme (EU countries)!

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 February, 7th 2019
- REGULAR COURSE: Classes from March to May (3 months) - ENTRY TEST on March, 5th 2019
