Regular course of Italian language and culture


The course is intended for foreign students who want to learn, and/or improve their knowledge of the Italian language and culture.

The number of levels activated will vary from a minimum of 3 to a maximum of 6 , in compliance with the «Common European Framework of Reference for Languages»: A1, A2, B1, B2, C1, C2. For its intensive nature, the course can also be attended, by way of payment, in January/February by Erasmus students whose exchange program at the University of Urbino starts in the second term of the academic year.

Lessons are from Monday to Friday, from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m., and from 3 to 5 p.m. twice a week for a total of 24 hours per week. At the end of the course, students can take an end-of-course test; passing the test corresponds to a certain number of ECTS depending on the number of lessons attended. A certificate of attendance will be issued on demand to those who attended the lessons regularly (maximum 20% of absences).

It is also possible – for those who may be interested - to enroll on Individual Teaching Units at the University of Urbino. The goal is to enable the students of our Italian language and culture courses to combine the study of the language with their personal and work interests, to make their stay in Urbino highly motivating and productive both intellectually and professionally.

Students can choose among a broad variety of cultural and leisure activities taking place in the afternoon, in the evening and at the weekend. To read the complete program, please visit the ACTIVITIES AND EVENTS section and follow us on Facebook.
