Students coming to Sapienza
Welcome to the Sapienza University Erasmus Programme (EU countries)!
Key Information for Erasmus Students
Facebook page: Sapienza Exchange Students
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
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 Students Welcome Week
Sapienza organises an International Students Welcome Week from 4th to 8th February 2019. 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).

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.
