Students coming to Sapienza
Key Information for Erasmus UE Students
As per the new Sapienza guidelines, students are no longer required to provide an official certificate attesting their Italian language level. However, we highly 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 within the application deadlines: later/different iscriptions will not be accepted!
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.

The Italian fiscal code, officially known in Italy as Codice fiscale, is the tax code in Italy, similar to a Social Security Number (SSN) in the United States or the National Insurance Number issued in the United Kingdom.
The code is used to identify unambiguously individuals residing in Italy irrespective of residency status. Designed by and for the Italian tax office, it is now used for several other purposes, e.g. uniquely identifying individuals in the health system, or natural persons who act as parties in private contracts (also for renting an apartment or for buying a SIM card).
The code can be issued by the Italian Embassy in your country or by the Italian tax office, the Agenzia delle Entrate.
Agenzia delle Entrate is located in Via Ippolito Nievo, 36 (500 meters from the Trastevere train station).
You can reach it by catching tram number 8 or 3, or bus number 780.
IMPORTANT: due to the current situation, you can also ask for your fiscal code via e-mail: email@example.com or to dp.1Roma@pce.agenziaentrate.it by sending a copy of your passport, Visa and this form dully filled in.
INSTRUCTIONS TO FILL OUT THE FORM: click here!
NOTE: it takes around 10 days to receive the fiscal code, so please do not send many e-mails to the previous addresses, but just wait patiently for their reply.
