Intensive course of Italian language and culture for foreign, university and LLP/Erasmus students


The intensive course is intended for foreign, university and LLP/Erasmus students registered at the University of Urbino.

During the course, students will acquire the necessary linguistic, social, practical and cultural skills to handle academic studies effectively and perform everyday tasks independently, and also to deepen and get an understanding of the most interesting aspects of the Italian culture. The course is also an excellent opportunity to meet other foreign students and learn together how to interact with the University world in Urbino.

Lessons are from Monday to Friday, from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m., for a total of 20 hours per week. At the end of the course, students can take an end-of-course test; passing the test corresponds to 6 ECTS. A certificate of attendance will be issued on demand to those who attended the lessons regularly (maximum 20% of absences).

In addition to studying Italian language and culture in the morning, students can choose among a broad variety of cultural and leisure activities in the afternoon, in the evening and at the weekend. The morning guided tour to Urbino during the first week of lessons and the screening of 3 Italian movies are also included in the cost of the course.
